Former cricketer Danish Kaneria has claimed that Team India should use both leg-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Bishnoi against Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022.
Chahal has been rested for the ongoing T20I series against the West Indies, while Bishnoi has been outstanding in his two appearances. The latter took 2 for 26 in the first T20I against the West Indies and 2 for 27 in the series’ fourth match on Saturday (August 6).
Following the West Indies series, India’s next T20I assignment will be the Asia Cup, which will be held in the United Arab Emirates from August 27 to September 11.
Ravi Bishnoi Is A Superb Bowler: Danish Kaneria
On August 28, the Men in Blue will face archrivals Pakistan in Dubai. Sharing a thought on his youtube channel Kaneria said:
“There will be no harm in playing Chahal and Bishnoi together in an Asia Cup game, maybe against Pakistan. After all, it will be the biggest game of the Asia Cup. Ravi Bishnoi is superb. He bowls with a lot of skill and variations. He has the googly and can bowl the flipper as well. Even if he gets hit, he doesn’t lose confidence.02”
“Arshdeep Singh is progressing by the day and his bowling is getting refined with every performance. He has learnt so much after playing just 5-6 games for India and is doing great things. Going after him seems next to impossible at the moment. He can be a lethal bowler for India in the Asia Cup”, Kaneria added while speaking about Arshdeep Singh.
Arshdeep finished with 3 for 12 in Saturday’s fourth T20I. With nine wickets at an average of 12.55 and an economy rate of 6.05. In five matches for India, the left-arm seamer has taken nine wickets at an average of 12.55 and an economy rate of 6.05.
