Aakash Chopra on Washington Sundar

India lost the first one-day international to Bangladesh. It was an absolute shocker for Men in Blue. The match was a low-scoring match but the Indian bowling department did a good job of restricting and picking up 9 wickets. Mohammad Siraj was the best of all bowlers and next to him was Sundar. Akash Chopra pointed out that despite bowling exceptionally well, he did not complete his full quota.

Chopra states,

“Washington Sundar, that’s a big question. He conceded just 17 runs, and picked up 2 wickets and I’m asking this question why didn’t he bowl all his overs? He could have bowled at least 7-8 overs because he got rid of a right-hander as well. He could have bowled a few overs when the 51-run stand between Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur was building up.  Just dangle the carrot and see what happens. The bowler was having a great day, but he didn’t get to bowl his full quota of overs. When you have 6 bowlers, you don’t know how to use them. Siraj was brilliant. He bowled really well, 3 wickets for 32 runs. There was the sideway moment. The seamers bowled well but they lacked the knockout punch towards the end.”

He questioned that he bowled economically, he even could have got rid of the last partnership which was building up. Sundar more over bowls at a quicker over rate, so he can complete his quota early too. It was a good question for skipper Rohit why he was sidelined despite good bowling.
