T20 World Cup 2022: “He has been outstanding as far as variation is concerned”, Irfan Pathan on Harshal Patel
While talking about Harshal’s abilities as a middle and death-over specialist, the veteran stated that he has a lot of variations. He even compared Harshal’s skills to those of Dwayne Bravo too.He explained:
“He has been outstanding as far as variation is concerned. His follow-through doesn’t change when he bowls those slower deliveries and whenever he is bowling the seam-up deliveries. It’s pretty much the same, so it doesn’t give away too many telegrams while bowling those variations. The control he has, which is great. He is quite similar to Bravo when it comes to variations because sometimes when you go for runs with the slower ones as well, he doesn’t change his pace, he just changes his line or length. That is why he has been very very successful.
He is very sure about his ability.”However, after losing the first two matches where Indian bowlers failed miserably to restrict them, the third game went their way as they won by 48 matches. Now, India will have to win the next game to equal the series and keep the hope alive of their series win as well.
