The Indian cricket team is preparing for the 2023 World Cup. Before the World Cup, Team India will play an ODI series against Australia. India has announced the team for this series. Ravichandran Ashwin was included in it. Washington Sundar is also part of the team. Harbhajan Singh commented on the team. Bhajji says India doesn’t need two off-spinners against Australia.
According to India Today news, Harbhajan Singh said, “The first thing is that Washington Sundar was not part of the main Indian team in the Asia Cup.” He was called up later. Secondly, Ravichandran Ashwin has been included in the team for the India-Australia series. Looking at this, it looks like the Indian team is looking for an off-spinner. Now they have realized that they made a mistake by not including the off-spinner in the team sooner.
He said: “You can’t take three spinners in the team.” They should only keep two. Ravindra Jadeja will definitely play. It doesn’t matter how many left-handed people you are. The second spinner will be Kuldeep Yadav. No one can take his place.
If we look at the performance of Indian spinners in the Asia Cup 2023, then Kuldeep Yadav performed effectively. Kuldeep took 9 wickets in 5 matches. He scored 103 runs in 28.3 overs. While Ravindra Jadeja took 6 wickets in 6 matches. He scored 152 runs in 35 overs. Mohammad Siraj took the most wickets for Team India in this tournament. Siraj had taken 10 wickets in 5 matches. Hardik Pandya took 6 wickets in 5 games. Pandya had scored 68 runs in 20.2 overs.
