Will the selectors listen to Jumbo’s plea?
Kumble liked this Indian spinner
New Delhi. The first match of the Test series between India and West Indies was played in Dominica. In this match, the Indian team performed brilliantly and managed to win by an innings and 141 runs. During the batting for the team, where Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli batted well. At the same time, during bowling, Ravichandran Ashwin alone was seen overshadowing the host team. He got a total of 12 successes in both the innings and played an important role in helping the team win.
Seeing the sharp bowling of spinners on Caribbean pitches, former great leg-spinner Anil Kumble has given a big statement. He has demanded to feed chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav on such pitches. Yadav is included in the team selected for the ODI series, but the selectors have not included him in the fleet for the Test series. Kuldeep Yadav played his last Test match for the Indian team in December 2022 against Bangladesh.
The 52-year-old former spinner said during a special conversation with Geo Cinema that Kuldeep Yadav should definitely be here because he is a very good spinner. A leg-spinner is very aggressive and very difficult according to the conditions.
Talking further, Kumble said that leg-spinners definitely spend runs, but you need to take them along to develop them. Whenever he gets a chance, he must be given a chance in the team.
He said that according to the Test format, he is a good spinner. He has proved himself whenever he has got a chance. At present, Ashwin and Jadeja have done a great job for the team. Akshar Patel has also left a mark when given a chance, but you should also try Kuldeep when the opportunity arises.
