For Team India, Harshal won the most wickets in this series. He took 7 wickets to his name. At the same time, his average was only 12.57. After Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal breathed new life into Team India’s speed attack. It becomes difficult for batsmen to play his slower ball. The Indian team will also benefit in the T20 World Cup to be held this year.

Avesh Khan couldn’t take any wickets in the first three games of this series. There have been criticisms why the management of the Indian team is not giving a chance to Umran Malik or Arshdeep Singh in his place but in the fourth game Avesh took four wickets and proved that he also had the power to reach India.

Ishaan’s bat went well
