IND v SL – THE100 Sports News Wed, 11 Jan 2023 16:27:48 +0000 en-US hourly 1 IND v SL – THE100 32 32 India has lost balance! Karim points out the failure of the top order. Wed, 11 Jan 2023 16:27:47 +0000 After losing by 16 runs to Sri Lanka in the second Twenty20 International on January 5 in Pune, Saba Karim slammed Team India. The former India selector thinks the team needs more harmony and coherence in its strategy. Karim emphasised how frequently India’s top hierarchy has failed. The veteran continued by saying that the hosts couldn’t rely on Suryakumar Yadav and the lower-middle order to save them in every situation.

India’s top order is the most significant issue. We frequently had bailouts from Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya when more seasoned players participated. Many of them have IPL or international cricket experience. After Shubman Gill’s numerous opening failures, this statement was made by Karim. Despite having IPL playing experience, Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi both performed poorly in single T20Is. In the first game against the Islanders, Team India was down to 46/3, and they were 57/5 in the second T20I.

Reetinder Singh Sodhi, a former all-rounder for India, concurred with Karim. He pointed out that India can only sometimes rely on Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, and Suryakumar to save the team during his appearance on the same show.

The highest echelon must participate. The bat-like form of Hardik Pandya was different from what was anticipated. If we compare the two games, the lower order, particularly Axar and Suryakumar, saved us. Team India needs to improve their bowling, according to Sodhi, if the hosts want to prevail in the series finale on January 7.

In the first match of the series, batting needed to be done correctly. In the second game, we bowled improperly, and our bowling performance suffered. We must prevent Sri Lanka from winning the series at this point because they would believe they have a good chance. It will only happen if we do the fundamentals—bowl and bat well—.

The veteran believes Hardik Pandya and the company must adopt the proper attitude before playing the defending Asia Cup champions.

India should play with a more positive attitude.

Umran Malik, on his way to the TOP !! Wed, 11 Jan 2023 16:19:54 +0000 Umran Malik, a young Indian bowler, has had a lot of hype and excitement around him lately. Trying to make his place in the Indian Cricket Team, the ‘Jammu Express’ has now become a sensation, and it seems that he is almost ready to face the World Cup. Umran Malik is a pacer who can bowl at 150 kmph. This 23-year young lad has exceptional bowling skills and has been causing trouble to the batters even when he has a very brief career as of now.

IPL Career

Umran Malik made his debut in Indian Premier League 2021, where he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad. He was given very limited chances to perform, but the boy succeeded in attracting attention and making a bright spot for himself.

For IPL Season 2022, he continued with Sunrisers Hyderabad, where he came across as a fierce fast bowler leading to which Sunrisers Hyderabad retained him for IPL Season 2023 for INR 4 Crore.

Ind v SL T20I- Record-Breaking Bowling

Umran Malik has come across as the most wicket-taking pacer for the 3-match T20 International series against Sri Lanka, where he bagged seven wickets. Malik broke the record by bowling at the speed of 155 kmph, which is the fastest bowling ever by an Indian Bowler, and Jasprit Bumrah held the previous record of fast bowling at 153.36 kmph. Definitely, he has got all that it takes to become India’s one of best fast bowlers.

Malik, as of now, has played 6 T20 Internationals for India, in which he has bagged nine wickets. He has, overall, bowled 20 overs till now at the cost of 218 runs, making his economy rate 10.90. He has played 5 ODI matches and bagged seven wickets at the expense of 198 runs making his economy 6.00.

Given the fact that all his economy rates are on the higher side, Umran Malik is definitely worth all the praise and attention. We cannot deny the speculations of his chances of showing his impeccable fast bowling skills in the upcoming ICC World Cup.

Is Rahul Tripathi the next big thing for India in T20I? Wed, 11 Jan 2023 16:08:13 +0000 Rahul Tripathi made his T20 International debut against Sri Lanka in the 3-match series finale at Rajkot, where he played a brilliant inning of 35 off 16. The match victory was highly credited to the smacking century of Suryakumar Yadav. Still, the attacking intent of Rahul Tripathi cannot be ignored, as he gave Team India the right pace in the powerplay.

Now, if we consider his performance in the series finals and the ease with which he played off the bowlers of Sri Lanka, there is no doubt that Tripathi has some real potential and capabilities to play at the top batting order.

An alternative for the opening batsmen

Ishaan Kishan and Shubman Gill, the opening batsmen, gave a slow start to the innings, and Rahul Tripathi entered the arena at No. 3 after Ishaan Kishan lost his wicket. Tripathi took an attacking approach against the Lankan bowlers with five 4s and two 6s in his brief innings of 16 balls. It looked like he knew how to manage the bowlers and hit beautiful shots out of it.

The Indian team has had a slower run-making pace in power play leading to missing some crucial matches. The defeat of the Indian Cricket team in the semi-finals of the T20I World Cup is owed to this struggle to make runs in the power play. In such a case, someone like Tripathi, who has an aggressive batting tendency, can be the right pick to open for India and score for the team in power play in T20 matches.

Suryakumar Yadav & Rahul Tripathi: A combination we did not know we needed

Suryakumar Yadav is, hands down, the best Indian Cricket team has right now, and he is justifying it well. However, at times, the batting lineup lacks a backup, sheer support, or partnership to his calibre. Rahul Tripathi is a batsman of similar nature, and together they will complement each other well. A batting partnership of these two Indian gems would be worth a wait and worth a watch!
