New Delhi: Former India team selector Sharandeep Singh believes that if Hardik Pandya does not bowl, then there is no place in the ODI team for Krunal Pandya. Sharandeep said, “If ODI International format Hardik Pandya does not bowl, then Krunal Pandya may not be your fifth bowler.”
’10 cannot overrun Krunal’
Sharandeep said, “Krunal Pandya batted well, but Krunal cannot do 10 overs. He is a good T20 player, but when it comes to ODIs, Krunal Pandya does not have the talent to present a challenge to the opposing batsmen. Apart from this, former selector Sharandeep Singh says that the experienced opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan should enter the T20 World Cup to be held in India this year.
Kohli wishes to open in T20
Explain that Team India captain Virat Kohli wishes to open in T20. After the T20 series against England, Kohli had said that he would open in the Indian Premier League (IPL), which led to the possibility of him and Rohit Sharma landing as openers in the World Cup. In the T20 series, Shikhar Dhawan got a chance to play only one match. Sharandeep said, “It was full of surprises.” Dhawan did well in the IPL, did well in Australia. Whenever he plays, he performs well.
Best pair of Dhawan and Rohit
Sharandeep said, ‘Shikhar Dhawan is very mentally strong. Maybe they want to try some options, but I believe that the combination of right-handed and left-handed batsmen of Rohit and Dhawan will be the best option for India in the World Cup. You cannot judge on the basis of a match.
