Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh feels that India should not visit Pakistan for Asia Cup 2023. According to him, there are numerous hazards involved that should be considered before making any decision.
While speaking to ANI Harbhajan said,
“India shouldn’t travel to Pakistan as it isn’t safe there and why are we taking risk of travelling when their people aren’t safe in their country? Our government is taking the correct decision not to go to Pakistan for any series as our priority is the safety of our players.”
He also pondered on India’s possibilities of lifting the World Test Championship for the first time. India has once again earned a spot in the WTC final. Two years ago India squared off against New Zealand at Rose Bowl, Southampton, England.
Although India performed well in the cloudy and unpredictable conditions New Zealand’s fast bowler Kyle Jamieson delivered an amazing performance to disturb the Indian batters.
India’s bowling unit struggled in the second innings, only managing to take two wickets. But this time the Turbanator believes that India would perform well in the final.
“Every time the Indian Team steps on the pitch we all have high hopes for their victory. Even this time we want them to be victorious. We hope that the result would be different this time and India ends up with a victory. Virat Kohli scored a century he is in a good form I believe that we have a goofed chance. If India scores 400 runs then they have the bowlers to take wickets and win the game,”Harbhajan continued.
India will play the WTC final without their key pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah. But Harbhajan believes that Indian pacers may compete with Australia.
“The team will feel the absence of Jasprit Bumrah. But we have Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur a bowler who has performed well in the Test format. Even Deepak Chahar could perform well in England. India needs to find the third bowler, Umesh Yadav is also there. So we have good bowlers. Our spinners have played a lot of cricket Jadeja and Ashwin have played there but I think only one will play there. We don’t have Bumrah but I think Shami will step up on the occasion.”
