Graeme Swann praised Team India, said- Indian team will be included in any team cheaply
Kolkata. Former England off-spinner Graeme Swann said on Wednesday that the Jasprit Bumrah-led Indian bowling attack has the ability to contain any team cheaply. Cricketer-turned-commentator Swan was in the West Indies in September last year when a trio of Indian fast bowlers Jaspreet Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami battered the hosts and took 33 wickets out of 40 to lead the team to two Tests. The series was whitewashed 2-0. Swann said in Sony Ten's 'Pit Stop' chat show, "I had found it fantastic and I said at the time that this Indian team would be able to assimilate any team in the world cheaply because of this bowling attack." The way they are bowling right now and I stand by it, it is fantastic. ''
The West Indies beat England by four wickets in the first Test at Southampton after international cricket resumed following the covid-19 epidemic. Swann said that England might not have seen that series and that he made the wrong selection by keeping Stuart Broad out of the team. He said, "England were playing the Ashes then, they would not have seen it. We were there and the Indian bowling attack was in amazing form. Jasprit Bumrah was in superb form in that series. Swann said, "I think England took the West Indies lightly and they picked the wrong team." England dropped Stuart Broad to make the wrong team selection. I will keep saying it constantly. By not feeding Stuart Broad, England made the entire bowling attack edgeless.
