Harit N Joshi (Midday), Mumbai. Former India bowling coach Bharat Arun has said that everyone talks about fast bowlers, but spinners have also done a good job and Indian spinners are performing well in the country. The 58-year-old Arun’s contract with the Indian bowling coach’s post ended with the recently concluded T20 World Cup.
When Arun was asked which bowler impressed him the most, he said, “I can’t name a single bowler, as each has contributed at their own level. Talking about Mohammed Shami, His seam is the best in the world. Jasprit Bumrah is different and thinks differently. Ishant Sharma has always been economical. Umesh Yadav is brilliant at reverse swing. He has done brilliantly whenever he has got a chance to play for India. “
As Ishant and Shami are over 30, Arun said, “India have a good future in bowling which includes Muhammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Pranand Krushna and Umran Malik.” It is too early to say anything about Umran, but he is a talented bowler. Avesh Khan is also good.”
When Arun was asked how the spin department has improved, he said, “Most people talk about fast bowling, but spinners have also done a good job and when they play in India, their performance is strong. . He has won many matches for India. Look at R Ashwin, he is fit so far in his career and is bowling excellent with his experience. Jadeja is the best. He has good batting with bowling too. We also know that. What level of fielder is he?
He also said that Kuldeep’s career is not over yet. He has a good future. He is exceptionally talented. I am sure I will do well in future. At the same time, about his next target, Arun said, “If I get a chance, I would love to work in the IPL.”
