India Ought to Carry In Yuzvendra Chahal In Place Of Ravichandran Ashwin: Harbhajan Singh

That is simply in regards to the thought course of. Chahal has made his fame by taking wickets, he has confirmed he’s a big-match winner in these smaller codecs. I don’t assume there’s a higher leg-spinner than him.

It’s a mistake to not let him play and if it was in my arms, I wouldn’t have let this error occur within the first place as a result of I might have included him within the squad.”
