“All Thanks To Kapil Dev…”: Sunil Gavaskar’s Final Disclosure As Mohammed Siraj Once Again Demonstrates India’s Pace Might

<p>India’s pace power was once again shown by Mohammed Siraj’s six-wicket haul against South Africa in the first session of the second Test in Cape Town. Jasprit Bumrah and Muesh Kumar both claimed two wickets in addition to Siraj. It provided another evidence that Indian speed bowling is among the finest in the world. Unable to withstand the unsettling bounce and movement, both inside and outward, that Siraj pulled from the surface, the South African batsmen raced back to the dug-out when he picked up a career-best 6 for 15 in a single period of nine overs.</p>

<p>Kapil Dev has had a significant influence on India’s speed game, according to former captain of the Indian cricket team Sunil Gavaskar.</p>
<p>“I am grateful to Kapil Dev.” He has shown that being a spin bowler is not a prerequisite in India. One can take a wicket even on Indian surfaces. Of course, as a new ball bowler, you will get a lot more help when you go to places like South Africa, England, Australia, and New Zealand. India has developed a variety of quick bowlers since then, according to Sunil Gavaskar on Star Sports.</p>
<p>“But a number of fast bowlers have gained prominence, especially in the past ten to twelve years because of the IPL. India now has a fast bowling bench strength that will likely make them the envy of the cricket world. If any of these men would choose to take a vacation, there is an abundance of talented left- and right-handers available. You saw the performance of Indian bowlers when Jasprit Bumrah wasn’t there. especially Mohammed Shami. This will, in my opinion, be a memorial to Kapil Dev. Additionally, I believe that on January 6, India will win a match for the first time in a very long time.”</p>
<p>South African hitters discovered on a steamy Wednesday morning what a terrific leveller cricket is as Siraj masterfully used speed, swing, and seam movement to tear the heart out of the Proteas batting lineup. In only 23.2 overs, the Proteas innings came to a close.</p>
<p>The South African fans in the grandstand were startled into silence when just two hitters, David Bedingham (12) and Kyle Verreynne (15), reached double figures.</p>
<p>Jasprit Bumrah (2/25 in 8 overs) also maintained pressure from the other end as Indian captain Rohit Sharma fulfilled his vow to ruin Test rival Dean Elgar’s life.</p>
<p>In these circumstances, Mukesh Kumar (2/0) outperformed Shardul Thakur piece by piece and wrapped up the tail as well.</p>
<p>Even the most ardent Indian fans could not have predicted such a spectacular recovery from the bowlers after they were publicly ridiculed for giving up more than 400 runs in the crushing loss at the Centurion.</p>
<p>Siraj maintained the ball at longer ranges of four to six meters, and most of the balls he bounced back in.</p>
<p>Bumrah struck the other end of the length while Rohit established full offensive fields, although of a different kind.</p>
