IND vs SA: In the last match of the three-match T20 series against South Africa, the Indian team was defeated by 49 runs. The main reason for this defeat was poor bowling. Batting first, South Africa thrashed the Indian bowlers and scored 227 runs in 20 overs. This time also Indian bowlers looted a lot of runs in the death overs. Indian bowlers conceded 73 runs in the last 5 overs. For the last few matches, Indian bowlers are proving to be expensive in the death overs. After the last match of the T20 series against South Africa, when head coach Rahul Dravid was asked about this, what was his answer, read …
Rahul Dravid said, ‘Definitely we want to improve ourselves in every department. Especially in the bowling of the last overs, we have to pay attention. But you also know that bowling in the death overs on a flat wicket is not easy anywhere. This applies not only to us but to other teams as well. The teams of Australia and South Africa, whose bowlers have good experience, were also seen struggling in the death overs on these wickets.
Dravid said, ‘Yes, we do not have to pay attention to others. We have to focus on improving ourselves. We have to see how it can be improved. This is the area where we definitely need to get better. Because we know that the winning-loss margin in big tournaments is very small and every run, every boundary counts.
