In the ICC World Cup 2023, the Indian fast bowlers have been in outstanding form, demonstrating their exceptional skills by dismissing Sri Lanka for a mere 55 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. The Sri Lankan team, led by Kusal Mendis, struggled to provide any answers to the match-winning performances delivered by Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Jasprit Bumrah.

The relentless Mohammed Shami claimed five wickets, leaving the Lankan side helpless. Mohammed Siraj, known for his strong performances against Sri Lanka, contributed with three crucial wickets, while the first wicket was taken by Jasprit Bumrah, adding to Sri Lanka’s batting woes.

However, there have been allegations from former Pakistani cricketer Hasan Raza, who accused the International Cricket Council (ICC) of providing Indian bowlers with different balls that aid in achieving more swing and seam compared to other teams. Raza has suggested that an investigation should be carried out on the balls used by Indian bowlers. He expressed surprise at the substantial swing generated by Mohammed Shami’s deliveries in Mumbai, even leading to astonishment from Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews. Raza speculated that there may be ICC or BCCI involvement in favoring Indian bowlers, or the third umpire might have a role in this controversy.
