Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav failed to impress in the cricket world cup 2019 in pacer friendly conditions in England. Although, Chahal was the highest wicket taker amongst the spinners in the tournament but he didn’t match his standards for which he is known for.
After World Cup debacle, selectors preferred some young spinners in the team and ousted the spin twins of Kul-Cha from the team. However, cricket pundits still hope that they both are rested and not dropped as they combine to be match winners.
Sourav Ganguly wants Chahal and Yadav back in side
The former India captain said that men in blue led by Virat Kohli is a great team in limited overs format but they should bring back Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
“This is a good team but Virat needs to bring back the wrist spinners into this format,” Ganguly wrote in his column for Times of India.
“I hope Yuzvendra Chahal has only been rested to give opportunity to others, or else he is a must for India in the T20 format.
Ganguly further said that he is not worried about India’s performance in shortest format of the game going into the T20 World Cup of 2020 in Australia.
“The T20 World Cup is in Australia next year and opinions and judgments will be passed. The key person amidst all this will be Virat Kohli, and it will be important for him to stay calm for a long period of time,” Ganguly said.
The Prince of Kolkata opined that India does not need two left arm spinners in Ravindra Jadeja and Krunal Pandya. India will next face a low lying South Africa in the three match test series, starting 2 October. The Virat Kohli led side will hope to win all the three matches to consolidate their numero uno position in ICC World Test Championship 2019-21.
