David Miller scored 106 runs off 47 balls in second T20I against India, at Guwahati. The South African middle-order hitter tried his best to chase the huge score posted by India with little help from Quinton de Kock, who struggled to score. David Miller has been a huge sensation and important part of IPL from past decade.

The IPL exposure did help David Miller to score huge but Indian bowlers did not really test him. Right from senior bowler like Ravichandran Ashwin to Harshal Patel to Arshdeep Singh, no one really seemed to have the control that is required to control a hard-hitter like David Miller. As many of them did play with Killer Miller in IPL seasons, them not finding ways to keep him quite is a huge problem for India, in coming matches and mainly, at Cricket World Cup.

Jasprit Bumrah is not completely ruled out from Indian CWC team, yet but his recovery in next ten days will be highly improbable to even hope. Also, he might not be at his prime and expecting him to deliver straight away also would be too much to ask for. Indian batsmen like Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma have used Australia and South Africa series to come back into form and rhythm.

At Asia Cup, India faced huge problems due to form of the batsmen and now, bowlers have become a headache. India won both the series but gaps cannot be ignored too.
