Stick To Your Strengths: Kapil Dev’s Advice To Indian Bowlers

Kolkata: Legendary Indian all-rounder Kapil Dev on Tuesday, advised the Indian pace bowling attack to stick to their areas of strength and not get carried away with the bouncy wickets ahead of India’s first Test against Australia.

While speaking at a digital session organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce, Dev added that the Indian fast bowlers lack experience of bowling on Australian pitches, despite the side boasting a quality bowling line-up with Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini or Mohammad Siraj.

“Our fast bowlers are not that used to bowling on Australian pitches. Sometimes they may get carried away when they see a little bit of bounce and start bowling short. It’s very important to understand their pace and back their strengths,” he said, before adding, “We may have a very good pace bowling attack at this stage, but they (Australians) know the conditions better than our fast bowlers.”

The 1983 World Cup winning skipper, who played 131 Tests for India, picked hosts Australia as the favourites for the pink ball Test match to be played in Adelaide on 17th
December.

“Definitely Australia have the edge. They are playing in their backyard. If India were playing a pink ball Test in India, I would say 80 per cent our chances. But Australia have played so many (pink ball) Tests and they understand the conditions better under the floodlights,” the 61-year old said.

Dev picked his Test debut in 1978 as his best moment in international cricket, over his 1983 World Cup winning experience.

“The biggest ever moment happened for myself was the day I played for India. I would call it 1000 times bigger than winning the World Cup because representing your country was always a dream. I still cherish the moment and feel so proud,” he said.
