India captain Rohit Sharma admitted that bowling in the death overs is a matter of concern for him but he backed Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel to regain their form ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia next month.

Even a 2-1 series win against 20-over world champions Australia could not dampen India’s struggle to prevent runs in the final overs, which also damaged their Asia Cup campaign earlier this month. reached up.

Known for his shrewd bowling especially in the final overs, Bhuvneshwar has seen a shadow of himself despite being a part of the World Cup squad in recent times.

“We know they have had more good days than bad days over the years,” Rohit Sharma said after India won the series against Australia on Sunday.

“Recently it hasn’t been the kind of performance he wanted, but it can happen to any bowler.

“I don’t think they lack confidence. You can have bad games but what’s really important is how you come back from those bad games.

“We want him back as soon as possible.”

Rohit was equally patient with Harshal, who, returning from a rib injury, could not do justice to his reputation as a cunning late-overs bowler.

The 31-year-old bowled a combined eight overs, conceding 99 runs for one wicket in the series against Australia.

Rohit said, ‘He was away from cricket for about two months. Whenever a bowler goes through that period of injury and comes back, it is not easy.

“We haven’t judged him on the basis of how he has performed in these three matches because we know his quality of what he can do with the ball. He has bowled some very tough overs in the past.

“You want the players to keep improving and we can see that happen. I’m pretty sure he’s not too far from his best.”
