India’s bowling attack will be under the microscope when they clash with the Australians for the fourth time in their current one-day series, with fourth match taking place at Ranchi.
In an amazing statistic, the Indian bowling attack has allowed more then 300 runs in all three games so far this series, something they will need to address as their top-order can only big them out of trouble so often.
Having Nine fielders on the leg-side boundary would not have helped them in Mohali during Ishant Sharma’s 30-run over, because James Faulkner’s sixes would have cleared them easily.
The home side’s inability to finish off a good bowling effort for 40 overs was never more apparent than in the third game at Pune.
There they had the Aussies 264 for 7 in the 47th over before Faulkner took them to 304.
Amazingly in January this year India’s bowling attack dismissed England for 155 in 42.2 overs in Ranchi’s first international match.
The fast bowlers found some movement, and the spinners some turn, something MS Dhoni will be hoping is there in the strip again if he finds himself in the field first.
Australia’s openers have put on 56, 110, 74 and 68 so far on the tour. India’s openers, in comparison, have managed 12, 26, 176 and 14.
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have established themselves at the top this year, and now India need them to be more consistent.
Australia currently lead the series 2-1 and will take a big step towards reclaiming the number one spot in the world for ODIs if they can put a two game buffer on their opponents.
