More young people will get a chance to bowl the 20th over: Modi uses example of Kaul and Umesh Yadav to show rising employment

Bengaluru. Glenn Maxwell struck an unbeaten hundred as Australia beat India by seven wickets to win clinch the T20 International series by 2-0 margin on Wednesday.


With 14 required off the last two overs, Jasprit Bumrah once again was tasked with somehow keeping India in the fight, and even though he did, lack of bowling options meant Siddarth Kaul, who had conceded 18 runs in his previous over, would bowl the final over. just like Umesh Yadav, Kaul also stumbled in the last over and was not able to take India over the line. The example though has been a boon for the ruling party as PM Modi thinks that more young people will get a chance to bowl the 20th over.

Modi was speaking at a BJP rally when he started discussing about new employment opportunities created by the govt. He said that if it was Congress which was ruling, people like Umesh Yadav and Siddharth Kaul would have never got a chance to bowl the last over.

Though India lost the game, the Prime Minister thinks that it showed the country that the employment opportunities are on a rise and they should not be worried at all. PM has also urged Indian Captain Virat Kohli to keep on giving chances to youngsters like Dinda, Kaul, Umesh and Ishant in the pursuit of good employment rate. Coching opportunities will also be created for more youngsters as it is clear that it requires less skill set, just see the example of Ravi Shastri.
