The Australia Tour of India commenced from 12th September 2017. Initially, most people were speculating whether the Indian cricket team would be able to perform well against the strong team of Australia. But now, people are rejoicing over the magnificent victory of India in the one-day international matches.
India has won the ODI series against Australia by managing to win four out of five matches. It is now gearing up for the upcoming T20. Though Australia is playing a good game, it seems like the Indian cricket team has never been in a better form before. The Indian bowlers as well as batsmen are getting better with each game and here are 5 Indian players that the other teams should particularly look out for:
Virat Kohli is the captain of the Indian Cricket Team. He has never been shy to shoulder his responsibilities as a great player. Since his debut, there has been a consistency in his performance, which is the best amongst all batsmen of the world. He enjoys tough situations and loves to guide his team for winning the game.
Jasprit Bumrah is one of the emerging players of India who has been steadily improving his performance with every game. He has practiced his consistent Yorker bowling with the best in the world, Lasith Malinga. He has come through for India in all overseas tours and typically shone against Australian batting.
Hardik Pandya is an all-rounder who was missing from the Indian cricket batting line-up. He is known for his aggressive batting style and finishing the game. But in the recent ODIs, he was seen playing a much mature game. The Indian captain can depend on him for both bowling and batting. The first ODI would have been a lost game if it wasn’t for the partnership between Hardik and MS Dhoni.
Known for his swing bowling, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is another emerging all-rounder for the Indian cricket team. He has played important knocks in the recent ODIs against Australia and came through in bowling as well with excellent wicket taking hauls. He has certainly made his position in the cricket team permanent as he is one of the best Indian bowlers currently.
We certainly cannot forget the opener of our batting line-up, Rohit Sharma. He is one of the very few players to have hit more than 200 runs in an ODI match and that too twice. One of those two hundred runs was scored against Australia in M Chinnaswamy Stadium. This makes him one of the topmost players to watch out for in the upcoming matches.
Though all Indian players are collectively putting their best efforts to make the team win, these players have been displaying an outstanding contribution in the Australian Tour of India and thus they should be looked out for in the matches to be conducted.
