The Indian team’s winning chariot in the ongoing T20 World Cup came to a halt on Sunday when it suffered a five-wicket defeat at the hands of the South African cricket team. On the blazing ground of Perth, the Indian team scored 133 runs losing 9 wickets in 20 overs batting first. In response, South Africa chased the target in 19.4 overs for the loss of 5 wickets.
Harbhajan Singh, the Indian team’s former off-spinner, suggested the team make some changes in game 11 after this loss. Harbhajan Singh thinks if KL Rahul is struggling for form then he should be dropped from the squad. Bhajji wants to see Rishabh Pant open with Rohit Sharma.
Harbhajan Singh said in a chat with Sports: “Team India have to make tough decisions. The team should think about it in the future. KL Rahul is a great player. We all know he is a winner But if he’s struggling with his form like that, then I think you should bring Rishabh Pant in game 11. Karthik looked injured. I don’t know the severity of his injury. is out of shape, Pant is expected to come in the opener with Rohit Sharma.
Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh has also suggested changes in India’s bowling attack. Ravichandran Ashwin scored 43 in four overs against South Africa. His biggest weakness was that he couldn’t take wickets in the middle. Bhajji wants Yuzvendra Chahal to replace Ashwin.
Harbhajan Singh said, “I also think Yuzvendra Chahal should be included instead of Ravi Ashwin. Chahal is a bowler who takes wickets. You don’t mind spending runs if you take two or three wickets. Chahal is a big game winner. He is one of the best T20 bowlers in the world. Chahal built his credibility by taking wickets. He has proven himself as a match winner. I don’t think there is a better leg spinner than Chahal yet.
The Indian team is due to play its next game against Bangladesh on Wednesday. The Indian team led by Rohit Sharma must beat Bangladesh at all costs to secure their place in the semi-finals.
