Former Australia skipper Brad Hogg feels that Team India is the most balanced team in the world when it comes to the T20 format. He feels that the presence of Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja at number 6 and number 7 is making India the most balanced side in world cricket.
India is on an 8-match winning streak in T20Is in 2020 and is yet to lose a match this year. With such kind of performance in the T20 format, one might not have an issue in calling the Virat Kohli led side, the most strong and balanced side in the world of cricket.
“If you are going to win the T20 World Cup, your No. 6 and No. 7 batsmen are the most vital cogs in your batting line-up. Because they are the ones that are going to finish off an innings as Jadeja and Pandya do quite often.
“That is the advantage that India have over all the other teams. They have the best No. 6 and No. 7 in T20 cricket. So, India should not change their batting line-up,” Brad Hogg said on his YouTube channel.
India is Better T20 Team: Brad Hogg
Team India has won the first T20 International against Australia by 11 runs on Friday at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. Analysing the batting line up of the Indian cricket team after the game, the former Australian captain said that India were the favourites to win the T20 series in Australia as they had a better T20 team.
“India last night were too good for Australia, they are the better T20 team. They have got a wonderful outfit. They have got batting depth as well as quality bowlers.
“If Australia has got an advantage it is in the bowling department, but India across the board is sensational,” he said.
Now Virat Kohli and Co will lock horns with the host in the second T20I on Sunday at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. While India will be aiming to seal the series by winning the second game, Australia will be aiming to avoid a serious loss against the visitors.
