India vs Australia 1st Test: Bowling side of India team

It is known to all that batting is the main strength of Indian cricket team. But if I ask you what is the weak-side of India team then what will be your answer bowling or fielding. However, India has developed their fielding side. Now, ahead of the 1st Test, Indian team manager and captain are busy about their bowling action. Most of the Aussies pitch are bouncy and pace friendly and it fall tourist in a big problem.

Indian selectors may use two specialist and experienced spinners in the India vs Australia 1st Test which will take place on 26th December, 2007 at Melbourne Cricket Ground with the Boxing Day. You already know that this match will start at 10:30 local time and 23:30 GMT. Anil Kumble is the new captain of Indian cricket team. And as a captain this is his first Australia tour. He is leading wicket taker and spin bowler in India team. Now, with him we can see another spin bowler, Harbhajan Singh. Playing two spinners depends on how the pitch looks the morning of the match. And selection Harbhajan Singh in the main squad is still in doubt. Anil Kumble has confirmed that strong batting line up will be the key to putting pressure on Australia team.

Both Kumble and Harbhajan Singh are in good form. They have impressive record against Australia team. Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh bowled most overs for Indian team in their recent 1-0 home series against Pakistan.

Selecting two spinners in the main squad leave India likely to choose two left-arm pacers from RP Singh, Irfan Pathan and Zaheer Khan. All of them are in good form. It has becomes so difficult for India team.

Bowling is the most important part in cricket game. Even good bowling attack can make the match easy to get win. And I also believe that nothing can recover weakness of bowling. So, Indian selectors should give more priority about their bowling side and play 3 specialist pacers in the India vs Australia 1st Test match. If they include Harbhajan Singh then I think it will be great opportunity for Indian team to dominance over Australia team.
