Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh has backed the youngsters – Ishan Kishan and Prithvi Shaw in India’s T20 World Cup squad even if a senior player missed his place for that as well.
While speaking to ‘Sports Tak’, the veteran spinner has said that Team India needs young players like Kishan and Shaw who are known for their attacking batting style as well.
“They should not be ignored based on their performances. Even if selectors have to replace a senior player, they should go ahead and do it. I also feel Suryakumar Yadav has sealed his place for the T20 World Cup. He not only plays an attacking brand of cricket but is also capable of preserving his wicket and scoring quickly at the same time,” he said.
He again shared that both Ishan Kishan and Prithvi Shaw has the ability to take on challenges and putting pressure on the opposing teams with their batting.
“You can judge a player on his performances. The way Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan have batted in an international game shows how capable they are and it will be difficult to ignore them for the T20 World Cup. If you want to win the World Cup you need players like them. They don’t see who is bowling in the opposition. They just back their natural game,” Harbhajan Sing expressed.
Meanwhile, Ishan Kishan has made a brilliant debut in the ODI format where he hit a half-century in the first ODI of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. He scored a blistering 59 off just 42 balls and made sure that India chased down the total convincingly as well. And, India won the game with 14 overs in hand as well.
“My dream turning into reality and there is no better feeling. Wearing the India blue is such an honor. Thank you everyone for your wishes and support. The goal remains to continue the hard work, giving it my all for my country,” he shared the post on Instagram after India won the game as well.
