Who are the pace bowler in Ranji Trophy?
As India’s premier domestic tournament Ranji Trophy begins Tuesday, the search for a pace-bowling all-rounder continues.
If Team India joined an auction pool, it would be willing to spend even half of its resources. At a time when there are so few cricketers who can play multiple positions, India is in a desperate situation. India’s talent base is growing with each passing season, but they haven’t yet discovered an all-rounder who can bowl rapidly and bat quickly.
India has only become more hopeless after Kapil Dev left for the last time several summers ago. India’s top hitters do not bowl, and their bowlers, especially the pacers, are not suited to handle the long handle barring a handful, despite the riches of the IPL and a strong local circuit to fall back on.
India already has an all-rounder in Hardik Pandya, but given his history of injuries and the fact that he no longer plays in Test cricket, India is searching for a 3D cricketer. As the Ranji Trophy, India’s greatest domestic competition, begins on Tuesday.
