Young Indian Batters In The Second T20I Should Be Fearless, According To Me: Abhinav Mukund

India will be trying to produce a big comeback and even the series when the two teams meet at the National Stadium in Guyana on Sunday after a close four-run loss in the first T20I against the West Indies.

Abhinav Mukund, a JioCinema specialist, believes India should not dwell too much on the opening-game defeat and instead concentrate on the current task at hand.

India is facing a youthful squad and is returning to this format. A new batting order has been established, and veteran players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja are not present. No (Mohammed) Shami and (Jasprit) Bumrah with the ball, either. I don’t think it’s a big deal,” Mukund replied.

 

“They handled the first game properly; they made a few errors, but generally, I believe that if they adopt the proper approach, they will prevail. Given the tight margins in the game, it’s too soon to interpret the outcome as a kind of loss. I think India will recover well because they have a powerful side, he said.

 

So, should India’s senior leadership alter their strategy for this match? “India’s batting strategy was centered on the Trinidadian weather. The pitch was sluggish and didn’t leave much room for making strokes. We anticipate a similarly sluggish batting surface for the second T20I, but we also anticipate huge performances from players like Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, who got off to a great start, and maybe even Suryakumar Yadav. In the second T20I, you should anticipate young batsmen to play fearlessly, according to Mukund.

 

The former India opener agrees that India need to continue using the bowling group that competed in Trinidad.

 

“I don’t think there are many changes in the bowling division. Hardik Pandya’s four overs eliminate the possibility of adding another medium pacer. Considering Mukesh Kumar’s performance at the death, I believe he will be allowed to play this game. Despite being a touch undercooked, Arshdeep Singh made a tremendous comeback. Bowling doesn’t undergo a lot of changes, according to Mukund.

 

Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Avesh Khan, and Mukesh Kumar are the players in the India T20I squad.
