Cultural factors pose challenges to development, but supportive policies can help overcome them, as did Indian fast-bowling
Another season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is over. Several Indian quick bowlers, such as Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Sami, Jaspreet Bumrah, Varun Aaron and Prasidh Krishna, hurled down deliveries at over 150 km per hour. Cricket fans can now turn their attention to the World Cup that begins later this month in England. The Indian team leaves with a strong contingent of fast bowlers, perhaps the best in the world. Meanwhile, the Test match Indian pace attack in 2018 captured 158 wickets in 11 overseas games, coming in second after the great West Indian pace attack of 1980, which got 189 wickets in 12 matches.
