ICC Cricket World Cup 2011: Quarterfinal Match between India v/s Australia… Call back Srisanth…
The quarterfinal cricket world cup match going to be played today between India v/s Australia is going to be the last chance for continuing in the race for achieving the goal to win world cup. We should not leave any stone unturned in pursuit of exploiting every single resource available at our command.
The Right-arm fast-medium bowler Sreesanth is right there to make an attacking buddy to the Left-arm fast-medium bowler Zaheer Khan for breaking the firewall of Australian batting order. Srisanth played in the first match against Bangladesh and gave away 53 runs off 5 overs without taking any wicket. The team management followed a nonprofessional instance by excluding Srisanth from all other matches played thereafter.
This was a bit childish policy followed by the team management. If a player fails in one match; it does not mean that his professional life has ended. Srisanth should have been given chance in other matches also and his aggressive fast medium bowling and power fielding should have been exploited for the benefit of team India.
In today’s match Srisanth should be included in the playing eleven because the team India will have the following benefits by his presence:
- Left arm bowler Zahir Khan needs a right arm buddy for providing variations in fast medium bowling in order to distract the consistency in Australian batting lineup.
- Srisanth will be a valuable addition in the fielding personnel as he is young, fit and fast fielder.
- Srisanth’s temperament will be advantageous as his aggressive attitude will be an effective deterrent against the more aggressive Australians.
