Praveen Kumar’s lack of pace and swing has meant he has been hit at an economy rate of 10.32 over five games.
Amongst Gujarat bowlers, only the young pacer from Kerala, Basil Thampi has impressed with his ability to bowl yorkers at the death. Though he too has an economy rate on the higher side – 8.88.
