ICC World Cup 2023: Should Rohit Sharma stick to the three-spinner strategy? “It depends…” says Harbhajan. – Magazine Creations

Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has given his verdict on whether India should stick with three spinners or use a pacer instead in their World Cup campaign.

The Men in Blue opened their World Cup campaign on a positive note with a hard-fought win over Australia.

One thing that stood out in Inda’s squad was the selection of three players – Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja.

As India prepares to take on Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday, questions have been raised about whether or not India will once again field a three-man squad.

“It will depend on the stadium, if the match is played at a stadium like Chennai, three players can play regardless of the opponent. It could be Pakistan even when people say they are playing well or against South Africa who are not playing well.” Even against Afghanistan. If the pitch allows it, three spinners should play, and if not, a world-class seamer like Mohammed Shami sits out,” said Harbhajan Singh.

India will be looking to make it two wins in a row as they make final preparations on the eve of the encounter.

India captain Rohit Sharma, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, bowler Shardul Thakur and batsman Suryakumar Yadav were among the players caught while sweating in the nets.

India suffered a stutter in their batting effort in their World Cup opener against Australia in Chennai. The Men in Blue crawled out of trouble with 2/3 over thanks to Virat Kohli’s 85 and KL Rahul’s 97 to win the match by six wickets.

India squad: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (wk), Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, Suryakumar Yadav and Shardul Thakur. .
