Wasim Akram comments on Kohli, Rohit, and Rahul after Mitchell Starc destroys India’s top order.
Wasim Akram, the best left-arm quick of all time, offered his opinion as India once more fell victim to some excellent left-arm pace.
In the second ODI against Australia, Mitchell Starc destroyed the top order on his way to scooping up his ninth five-wicket haul, bringing left-arm problems back to haunt India. India’s fourth-lowest ODI total at home was reduced to 117 with Starc’s dismissals of middle-order batsmen Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul, openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, and middle-order batsmen Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. Go back to the 2017 Champions Trophy final, where Mohammad Amir performed a magnificent spell up front, or the 2019 World Cup semifinal, where Trent Boult destroyed India’s top order, to see that India has battled against left-arm quicks before. For the Indian squad, fighting left-arm quicks is not a brand-new challenge.
Wasim Akram, the greatest left-arm pacer of all time, offered his opinion as they once more fell victim to some excellent pace. Not only Virat Kohli, Rohit, or Rahul, but some of the best batsmen in the history of the game have not been able to get away with such bowlers, according to former Pakistani captain Akram, who believes that the angle from which left-arm pacers throw the ball makes it difficult for the batters. Add to that the fact that Australia won the toss following a brief period of rain, taking advantage of the cloudy conditions to such an extent that the Indian batsmen had little defence against the storm that destroyed them.
