Veteran cricketer Sunil Gavaskar talked about his playing 11 picks with the recently announced Indian squad. BCCI revealed the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Rohit Sharma is the designated captain and KL Rahul his deputy. Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are also named in the squad. 

“I would play both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik. At No.5, Rishabh Pant, No.6 Hardik Pandya or vice-versa and I’ll play Dinesh Karthik at No.7. I would give Hardik and four other options as bowlers. If you do not take risk, how will you win? You need to take risk in all departments then only you can get rewards,” Gavaskar said to Sports Tak

Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel are also present in the squad. Their inclusion has strengthened the bowling department along with Yuzvendra Chahal. Gavaskar said the addition of Bumrah and Patel in the lineup will be great. 

“It is a good team. It is a balanced side, we have high hopes from them in terms of winning the World Cup. I think India can win the World Cup because of the balance. What happened in Asia Cup was a wake-up call, I am hopeful that this team will come back with the World Cup. the team that has been selected, we should support that. Now that the time has been announced, we should give our full backing,” Gavaskar added.

“Our problem in the Asia Cup was that we did not have such bowlers that can defend a total. Now that, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have come back, these two are such bowlers who can defend targets and if you are bowling who can defend targets and if you are bowling first, they can strike up front. The team has become stronger with these two coming together.”
