new Delhi: Team India is currently on a tour of Australia and is sweating heavily in practice. The three-match ODI series will also start from 27 November and along with this the team India’s examination. There is a lot of speculation this year that the Australian team may be overshadowed by the visiting team and there are many reasons for this.
India (Team India) Has less bowling options this year. Except for all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in the ODI series, India has very few batsmen who can bowl as well.
Hardik Pandya, who went on a tour of Australia, cannot bowl, as he is not yet fully fit to bowl and can only play as a batsman.

When India visited New Zealand in February this year, it also had to face similar problems there. He could not defend his score twice, it also has a score of 347 made in the first match.
There are eight mainly batsmen in the 16-member ODI squad, who cannot bowl and if Hardik Pandya is played as a batsman, then there will be nine batsmen. Of the remaining seven players, six are mainly bowlers.
In comparison, Australia have four all-rounders in ODIs as Marcus Stoinis, Moises Henriques, Cameron Green and Daniel Samms.
They also have bowler Pat Cummins who also does well batting and can score runs till the end. Batsman Glenn Maxwell also regularly bowls a few overs as an off-spinner.
Australia coach Justin Langer has said that we really like to have extra bowlers in ODIs. In England we picked Mitchell Marsh, Stoinis and (Glenn) Maxwell for an additional 10 overs and we liked that combination ‘.
India has struggled to find all-rounders, especially a fast-paced all-rounder, over the years.

Hardik Pandya’s brother Krunal Pandya is part of the T20 series Indian team. He is a spin bowling all-rounder. However, he is considered fit for T20 cricket only.
In such a situation, there will be a lot of pressure on India and it will have to understand the strategy against Australia.
