He additional added that if Rohit Sharma desires to stay along with his six bowling choices within the group, then he ought to go along with Harshal Patel as an alternative of Axar Patel, given the shorter sq. boundaries on provide in Adelaide.

If they will, Suryakumar might be at 4, Pant at 5, Pandya at 6, and Karthik at 7. You may stretch your batting, and Hardik is now bowling, so he might be your fifth bowler. Now we have to assume this by means of. In case you take an additional bowler, you must think about that the boundaries are brief for spinners. You may take Harshal Patel,” Gavaskar mentioned on Aaj Tak.

“In case you’re giving Axar Patel 1-2 overs, and might’t use his full overs, then why are we selecting him? He is not scoring runs at no.7 as nicely. He is a very good participant, he performed good in West Indies, however if you cannot belief him with the ball, you must choose a bowler on whom you possibly can rely,” he added.
