IND vs SA, World Cup 2023: India have best all-round bowling attack across the world, says Ravi Shastri
Former India coach Ravi Shastri was in awe of Indian bowlers after the Rohit Sharma-led side defeated South Africa by 243 runs to register their 8th successive win in the ongoing World Cup 2023. Shastri hailed the current Indian bowling attack as the best in the world after the hosts showcased another dominant performance.
"This is the best all-round bowling attack. Not just in these conditions but conditions across the world," Shastri said while doing commentary during the India vs. South Africa Cricket World Cup.
All five main Indian bowlers - Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj - have claimed 10 or more wickets in the ongoing World Cup 2023.
This is India's best combined bowling attack. If you add Zaheer Khan, this would be India's best bowling attack," Gautam Gambhir also said.
Three days after bowling out Sri Lanka for 55 runs to clinch a massive 302-run victory over the 1996 World Cup champions, India's batting and bowling were on fire once again at Eden Gardens.
India dominated the game from the first ball, posting 326 for five on a tough track before skipping South Africa for 83 to hand the latter its biggest defeat in one-day internationals. Virat Kohli's century and Ravindra Jadeja's five-wicket haul propelled India to a 243-run victory over South Africa, Proteas's biggest World Cup defeat.
Although both teams had already qualified for the semi-finals prior to Sunday's match, the outcome at Eden Gardens has heightened hopes that India will capture the 50-over World Cup trophy for the third time, following victories in 1983 and 2011.
