The formidable trio has kept batsmen on their toes and oppositions on the back foot and former Australian legendary wicket-keeper batter Adam Gilchrist opined that the potency of their bowling is making them such a threat at the moment.
Gilchrist, while speaking to Fox Cricket, has also come up with a piece of advice for India’s opponents as to what needs to be done to put them under pressure.
“I think firstly winning the toss and batting first, given how India have gone about their business. I don’t suggest that they have a weakness in chasing. They have the greatest-ever run-chase co-ordinator in Virat Kohli,” said Gilchrist.
“But the damage that the Indian bowling attack has been doing under lights, they have been lethal. Siraj, Shami, and Bumrah have been almost unplayable. It might be more conducive to bat against them in daylight. They have always had a powerful batting line-up. But it’s the potency of the bowling that’s making them such a threat at the moment,” he added.
Gilchrist said India boasts of a balanced squad, with their pace attack seamlessly complementing the spin department. India has successfully dismissed every team in the World Cup except for Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

“India has a well-balanced bowling lineup as the fast bowling talent is beautifully married with a couple of varieties of spin. Jadeja’s stats are amazing. Kuldeep Yadav is a variation that can often bamboozle any opposition. And then you have Ravi Ashwin sitting in the background hardly getting a go,” said Gilchrist.
