“The death overs issue is under discussion in the team meeting and at the net sessions. That’s the real test.
“It’s a challenge. The idea is to keep improving. We will focus on it in today’s training session too,” Bichel explained. Since the Chepauk wicket has been playing slower, he said a part-timer like Suresh Raina could play a role. Fast bowler Dirk Nannes stands a chance of playing too.
“Balancing the playing XI is a challenge. May be (Suresh) Raina comes in as an option. The conditions are changing from match to match here and all over the country.
The explosive South African all-rounder Albie Morkel’s inclusion is a possibility too. “Albie has been bowling in the nets, but he requires some more preparation,” Bichel said.
