Former pacer Laxmipathy Balaji feels the Indian fast-bowling attack has been in impressive form in the run-up to the ICC World Twenty20 especially veteran Ashish Nehra, who has made a fine comeback into the squad. (World T20: Confident India Begin Title Bid With New Zealand Game)
"India has prepared well for the ICC World Twenty20 and have got the combinations right in the last three tournaments against Australia, Sri Lanka and the Asia Cup. The seniors as well as the juniors are doing well. The fast bowling department has been looking great especially in the death overs," said Balaji on the sidelines of an event.Â (India Should Focus on Winning World T20, Not Defeating Pakistan: Gautam Gambhir)
"Ashish Nehra and Bumrah are bowling very well now. Ashish has made a very good comeback. It's not easy to do coming back after six years to a new Indian team. He has had his ups and downs. I rate Ashish very high," he added in praise of Nehra, who was out of the team for a long period after being part of the victorious 2011 World Cup squad.
"I think whichever team gets a good start will get the momentum and it will finish well," added Balaji.Â (World T20: Sachin Tendulkar Satisfied With Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Return to Form)
