Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, a former cricketer for India, has batted in favor of wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal being selected for the ODI team.
The Men in Blue will play its neighboring country in a three-match One-Day International series, with the first game taking place in Mirpur on Sunday, December 4. The Indian roster of 17 has no wrist spinners, with Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, and Shahbaz Ahmed serving as the three spin-bowling alternatives.

Since the 2019 World Cup, Team India hasn’t often fielded Kuldeep and Chahal together, despite the fact that they have repeatedly shown their value with game-winning performances.
The Indian wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have consistently won matches to demonstrate their value, although they have been in and out of the lineup. Interestingly enough, neither of the two spinners will play in the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh that begins on Sunday.
It is unexpected that a wrist spinner was not chosen for the ODI series against Bangladesh. Kuldeep and Chahal were both in the Indian team for the most recent ODI series against New Zealand, although only Chahal actually played.

The three-match ODI series against Bangladesh, which begins on December 4 in Dhaka, will also be without both spinners.
“When I competed in the World Championship of Cricket in 1985, Sunil Gavaskar gave me the license and said, “Go bowl ten overs, even if you give 50-55 runs.” That was very expensive at the time, and he said, ‘I want two-three-four wickets from you.’ Ravi (Shastri) will bowl with you in tandem, keeping it tight and creating that pressure. ‘I want you to bowl for four wickets.’ “Sivaramakrishnan told IANS in an exclusive interview.
“He would say that between my and Ravi’s ten overs, I want 100 runs and four or five wickets in 20 overs from both of you. I worked hard to break the opposition’s backbone, and it worked” Laxman Sivaramakrishnan said.
“It was a strategy that worked from the first match to the finals. Aside from the finals, we got every team out in under 50 overs. You must have strong planning, talents, and trust in a cricketer to bring you wickets. Batsmen will chase any number of runs you offer them these days” Laxman Sivaramakrishnan remarked.
