‘Ashwin is economical, a player like Chahal complements him’ – Sanjay Manjrekar

Ravichandran Ashwin, an economical off-spinner, has his T20Is up in the air as there are a lot of options for India. however, keeping in mind how good he is against left-handed batters, the team management called him up for the T20 World Cup 2021. But netizens found it weird to see him featuring in the squad with Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi and Kuldeep Yadav. His recent performance in the West Indies was pretty impressive. Sanjay Manjrekar believes that he can be dangerous if paired with a wicket-taker like Yuzvendra Chahal.

Sanjay Manjrekar said,

“I like Ashwin when he’s with somebody like Chahal. So, the onus is not on Ashwin to change the tide.”

He also added that,

“He focused a lot on the economy, but when you have somebody like Chahal, or if there’s another wicket-taking wrist spinner, then Ashwin becomes a great compliment because Ashwin has mastered the art of being economical in T20 cricket. In the first T20, a couple of wickets was a great sign, but that’s what you’ll get with Ashwin, that compliment to the other main wicket-taking spinner in the team.”

Sanjay also added few worlds on Chahal and Kuldeep,

“I don’t think that combination will be ever employed by India. At least in T20 cricket where you have Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav both playing together as two spinners. Either it’ll be Axar Patel or Chahal or it’ll be Ashwin or Chahal. If Chahal is unfit, then they might just play Kuldeep Yadav as a gamble in one of the games. I don’t see Chahal and Kuldeep getting reunited, maybe in 50-overs cricket they would”
