Bawa, the hero of India’s U-19 World Cup profitable marketing campaign, is a fast-medium bowler and left-handed hard-hitting middle-order batter. Whereas he has solely performed two Ranji Trophy video games for Chandigarh, it’s understood that the Chetan Sharma-led choice committee’s concern is to create a back-up for Hardik Pandya, who would repeatedly have to concentrate on workload administration. With the likes of Shivam Dube and Vijay Shankar not stepping up on the worldwide stage, the selectors are eager on making a pool of backup seam bowling all-rounders.
India have too many spin-bowling all-rounder choices however not many tempo bowlers with good decrease middle-order hitting prowess. Bawa’s all-round talents might be put to check and the selectors will get an concept if he could possibly be later upgraded to the senior stage.
