Mukesh Kumar made his all 3 format’s international debut on July 2023 in the West Indies series 2023. Mukesh Kumar so far played 3 T20Is, 3 ODIS and 1 Test match and bagged 2, 4, and 2 wickets respectively.

While speaking regarding the fourth T20I preparation in Florida, Mhambrey expressed satisfaction with Mukesh’s progress.

“Very happy with the way he has progressed; the thought process, the discussion we had with him and his approach towards the game is fabulous. You need someone like him to come here on a tour and play against tough opponents on a different wicket which is never easy. But the way he has gone about it and the character he has shown (makes us) extremely happy”.

“Going forward, since we know he is capable of playing all three formats, we need to be smart with his workload management. He has played a lot of domestic cricket and got quality skills out there,” Mhambrey said on Friday.

Compared to the slow wickets in the Caribbean, the bowling coach is expecting good batting tracks in the mainland United States.

“It is a little bit different with the black soil. The kind of soil we get in the north of India. It is going to be a good wicket to bat on. The ball will come on to the bat. That is what we saw in the nets. Looks like it is going to be a high-scoring game,” he reckoned.

India still trails the West Indies 1-2 in the five-match series but Mhambrey remains confident about his team’s chances.

“I’m extremely happy with the way we fought back (in the third T20). In the first two games, I don’t think (we) were too far behind. We had the opportunities but unfortunately, we couldn’t seize them.

“Had we done that, the results would have been different. So, I’m not worried in that way. We were very much on track, just a couple of instances we lost and couldn’t seize (the win).

“But looking at the way we have played that, firstly we know that we have skills to take it forward. With the ability that we have right now in all departments, we tick all the right boxes. So, looking at how we played the last game, it’s only one way forward from here and that is up and forward,” Mhambrey added.

India needs to win the 4th T20I game to stay alive in the ongoing 5-match T20I series against West Indies. After losing the first 2 T20Is, India won the 3rd game and postponed West Indie’s series victory.

The 4th T20I game will be played on August 12 at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida while the last T20I will be played on August 13 at the same venue.
