With Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel picking themselves in the playing 11 for the world cup, India will have a tough task in finalising their 3rd seamer. They have 3 options to choose from. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is ahead of his peers Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan due to his experience and a proven customer that he is. Arshdeep Singh has been in extraordinary form and has 2 excellent IPL seasons at the back of him to go with the left arm angle he adds to the table.
