Harbhajan Singh weighs in on India's spin attack and wicket-keeper choice for the WTC Final
With the World Test Championship (WTC) less than a week away, opinions on how India should line-up for the massive clash have been coming in from experts around the globe.
Jumping on the bandwagon, former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh shared his thoughts on how the pitch and weather conditions will heavily influence the team selection.
Sharing his train of thoughts on India’s spin combination, Harbhajan said, “This all depends on what the pitch is saying, if the pitch has lesser grass and the sun is out, then play with two spinners. If that is not the case then play three seamers and Ravindra Jadeja, along with Shardul Thakur who will not only bowl but contribute with the bat as well."
Harbhajan also justified his choice to pick KS Bharat as the wicket-keeper for the WTC Final over Ishan Kishan.
He said, “I don’t think he (Kishan) should be in the starting 11 because KS Bharat has been playing consistently for some time. If it was Wriddhiman Saha, then I would consider playing him because he has more experience and is a better keeper. If KL Rahul was fit, I would have played him instead, at number 5 or 6, because he is a proper opener and he could keep as well.”
