Jaffer said that the inclusion of Washington Sundar is not a good option.
Arshdeep Singh can replace Harshal Patel in the next T20 match.
new Delhi: Team India registered a close win by 2 runs in the first T20 match against Sri Lanka. Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal proved to be expensive for Team India. He looted 26 runs in 2 overs. After this, the Indian team management would be thinking of replacing Chahal. Washington Sundar can be replaced in his place. However, former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer has rubbished the idea of Sundar’s inclusion. He has said that Chahal should not be excluded from the second T20.
Jaffer said during a conversation with ESPN Cricinfo, “It will be a big challenge for Washington Sundar to get Chahal out. Because I believe that there must be a wrist spinner in the playing XI. Even though Sundar also bats for the team. But I don’t think Chahal should be dropped from the team for performing poorly in one match.”
Arshdeep Singh can replace Harshal Patel: Jaffer
Jaffer said that if Arshdeep is available for the next T20, then I think he will be back in the playing XI. Maybe he will get a chance in place of Harshal Patel. The first T20 was not good for Harshal Patel. But apart from this I do not see any change in the playing XI.
This could be India’s playing XI in the second T20:
Hardik Pandya (Captain), Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Yuzvendra Chahal, Akshar Patel, Arshdeep Singh/ Harshal Patel, Umran Malik, Shivam Mavi
