With the criticism that followed the non-selection of the Chinese Kuldeep yadav for the first test between India and England, it seems inevitable that the 26-year-old Chinese will play the second test on Saturday in China. The idea for Kuldeep’s game stems from the fact that England has fought leftists in the past.
However, Australian British Brad Hogg thinks it is better to play with a fit Axar Patel over the young spinner, as he feels that India should play the test with a tweaker that can move the ball away from the English batsmen.
“Because Ashwin is playing, not Jadeja, it’s a big headache because you need someone as a second spin option with a player who can also handle the bat,” Hogg said on his YouTube channel. “Try and play this Jadea role. So you have two right-handed spinners (Washington Sundar and Ashwin) and you need a spinner who can take the ball. But Culdip, who is a left-footed spinner, will also score the ball. So you have three spinners who bring in the ball and that’s a problem, but the way Nadim bowled in the last game and if Axar Patel is not fit, then Kuldeep has to play. ”
He also pointed out that Kuldeep is a man who can’t generate an extra rebound and could have a day on the field against a few English batsmen who are good at the shot game.
“Another problem with Kuldeep is that it doesn’t get that extra bounce with similar Foakes and Joe Korenwho are good cleaners, Kuldeep will be cut out of the task, “he said.
