According to Sanjay Manjrekar, India won’t field two wristspinners during the ODI World Cup. Manjrekar added that he likes Yuzvendra Chahal to Kuldeep Yadav.

Sanjay Manjrekar, a former Indian batter, has stated that in ODIs, he prefers Kuldeep Yadav to Yuzvendra Chahal.

As the ODI World Cup, which will be held in the subcontinent in the months of October and November, approaches, Manjrekar discussed the bowling lineup that India can deploy.

Asked if India could play both Chahal and Kuldeep in the team, Manjrekar said that it was highly unlikely that it could happen.

“I don’t think so. Very rarely it can happen depending on the opposition. If there is a real weakness in the opposition to play wrist-spin, then you have Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal both playing in the XI,” Manjrekar said

Manjrekar continued by saying that he would rather have Kuldeep in the team because of his capacity to dismiss batters when they were not playing big shots.

“I see Chahal being part of the squad but I prefer Kuldeep Yadav when it comes to wrist-spin as the spinner in 50-over cricket. I am getting a little technical here. You need a spinner who can get wickets of batters while they are pushing, not hitting the big shots,” the former India batter said.

“In T20 cricket, that is something you see very often. That’s how spinners get wickets. In 50-overs cricket, it’s a game where you push more than you actually slog. So a spinner capable of getting those wickets is Kuldeep Yadav. So he is sort of my first-choice wrist-spinner in the playing XI and then I will be looking at other options,” Manjrekar concluded.

Both Kuldeep and Chahal have been selected by India for the ODI team against the West Indies. Rohit Sharma, who will serve as the team’s captain, will closely monitor each player’s progress in the months leading up to the ODI World Cup.

INDIAN SQUAD: KL Rahul, Ravichandran Ashwin, Suryakumar Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, etc
