Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are some prominent bowlers who are in the eyesight for the spinner’s category in the Indian squad. Indian skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri will seek to get the best spinners for ICC T20 World Cup 2021, which is slated to be played in India during October-November 2021. There’s always been a debate that Ashwin should be playing whites ball cricket over Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Monty Panesar Feels That IPL Shall Be Enormous Litmus Test For Yuzvendra Chahal And Kuldeep Yadav for T20 World Cup Selection
Former England spinner Monty Panesar feels that Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are better options for spinners than Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal for India in ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The former English cricketer also said the IPL will be a test for Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav for their selection in the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2021 tournament.
Monty Panesar believes that Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli may give one other probability to the spin duo of Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the shortest format of the sport. Detailing his opinion on the identical, Monty reckoned that each Jadeja and Ashwin have quite a bit of expertise that can assist the group together with their game-changing skills.
Also, the 38-year-old argued that Ashwin and Jadeja have all-around skills and might contribute each with the bat and the ball, unlike Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal. “The IPL shall be an enormous litmus take a look at for Chahal and Kuldeep. If they have a nasty season, their T20 World Cup berths shall be uncertain. With the T20 World Cup developing in October, Virat desires to pick his finest spinners. It doesn’t matter who they’re. Virat desires performers. That’s it. He has pacers and all-rounders and batsmen”.
“The selection of spinners can worry him. I wouldn’t mind seeing Jadeja and Ashwin back in the fray. If I was Virat, I would pick Ashwin-Jadeja ahead of Kuldeep-Chahal for the World T20. That’s because of their experience and game-changing abilities. They both have all-around abilities. They both are big-match players. Why not pick them ahead of Kuldeep and Chahal?” Panesar informed Timesofindia.com
Monty further added that Harbhajan Singh might have some cricket left in him and can be picked up for the T20 world cup.
“I think he has some cricket left in him. Ashwin, Jadeja, and even Harbhajan will have the opportunity to be in the World Cup squad. All they need is to have a good IPL season,” Monty Panesar further said. Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will be watched closely by Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri for their selections in T20 World Cup.
