Shastri agreed with Harbhajan’s opinion and claimed the time is ripe to include young talents in India’s T20I side as senior players look to prepare for the ODI World Cup.
Speaking on Star Sports Studio, Ravi Shastri said, “If Team India is focussing on ODI World Cup, selectors should look to give as many opportunities to the youngsters like Yashasvi and Rinku. These players should be fast-tracked and can be prepared for next year’s T20 World Cup in West Indies. If the selectors don’t pick them now then I don’t know what else they are looking for.”
Meanwhile, star India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal touched a massive landmark in TATA IPL as the Rajasthan Royals’ leg-spinner became the leading wicket-taker in the tournament’s history along with reclaiming the Purple Cap.
Hailing Chahal for his consistently good show in TATA IPL, former India spinner Harbhajan Singh claimed the Haryana cricketer plays with the mind of batters.
Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Live, Harbhajan Singh said, “Yuzvendra Chahal does not play the format but plays with the mind of the batsmen. He bowls completely with his mind and is not afraid of getting hit for sixes. He makes the best use of the pitch, and due to this the batsmen find it difficult to play him.”
