Indian bowling coach Joe Dawes said on Friday that they are trying to turn all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja into former Pakistan great Wasim Akram.
Meanwhile, Indian bowlers might have drawn flak after failing to win the first Test on a responsive wicket at Johannesburg, but bowling coach Joe Dawes backed his wards, saying “sometimes they get unwarranted criticism”, reported PTI
In the drawn first Test at Johannesburg, Indian bowlers couldn’t bowl out the hosts on a wicket that aided them, despite defending a mammoth 458-run target.
And it remains to be seen how many runs Mahendra Singh Dhoni will think are enough on what is the flattest Kingsmead pitch here seen in recent years.
“Yes, it was a disappointing that we couldn’t bowl them out on a pitch that was doing something. However, it was a matter of just one partnership that saved the match for them. It happens, that’s cricket for you,” Dawes said after the opening day’s play of the second Test today.
