Washington Sundar
“We need to see how Kuldeep Yadav can fit in” – Kiran More
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Former wicketkeeper Kiran More believes India must look to bring in left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav for the second Test against England to strengthen their bowling department.India preferred off-spinner Washington Sundar and left-arm orthodox spinner Shahbaz Nadeem ahead of Kuldeep Yadav for the first Test in Chennai. However, neither could make an impression with the ball, as England cruised to a commanding victory.Speaking to Sportskeeda’s Indranil Basu in an SK Live session on Facebook, More felt that India missed Kuldeep Yadav in the first Test. He stated in this regard:“We need to see how Kuldeep Yadav can fit in. Washington Sundar definitely gives us batting strength. But, with two off-spinners, things become very easy for the opposition. I think Ravichandran Ashwin’s line and length and Sundar’s line and length are slightly different."More elaborated further:"It will be harsh to drop Sundar. But sometimes you have to play the right combination to win a Test match. So, the think tank will have to decide how to go about it. And Kuldeep (Yadav) will give a different combination, different ideas for the captain, and also give something to think for the England batters.”Kuldeep Yadav can win matches for India: Kiran MoreExplaining what Kuldeep Yadav brings to the table, More observed that the 26-year-old has the ability to win games for the team. The 58-year-old explained: “He is a guy who has got some different varieties. And he is hungry. If you give him an opportunity, he will bowl well. Nadeem was struggling. He has not played cricket for a long time, and coming into a Test match straightaway after the pandemic is not easy. Kuldeep has done well in Test cricket. He has the variety, which helps to win a Test match. Sundar has good control. But Kuldeep is someone who can get you wickets anytime. He can take a five-wicket haul and win a match for you.”On being told that Kuldeep Yadav was dropped in favour of Nadeem to avoid monotony in the bowling attack, the former chairman of selectors pointed out:“Kuldeep can take the ball away from the batsmen also. On a slower pitch, a slow bowler bowls better. On flatter pitches, Sundar who gets good bounce and has good height will be useful, like in Australian conditions. But in Indian conditions, Kuldeep will be a better choice.”Following India’s defeat in the first Test, captain Virat Kohli defended the decision of Kuldeep Yadav's non-inclusion, saying that his inclusion would have made the bowling attack one-dimensional. However, Kohli admitted that the team combination will be revisited in the wake of the loss. Published 10 Feb 2021, 00:21 IST .

India’s tail didn’t last long once the defiant Ashwin-Sundar stand was broken. The second new ball did the trick for England, with the visitors picking the remaining four wickets to bowl India out.However, Joe Root’s men decided against enforcing the follow on and came out to bat for a couple of overs before the break. But they couldn’t properly negotiate that, losing Rory Burns on the first ball of their 2nd innings.Brief scores: England 578 all out and 1/1 ( Dominic Sibley 0*, Daniel Lawrence 0*; Ravichandran Ashwin 0/1) lead India 337 all out by 242 runsIndia started the day in promising fashion, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Washington Sundar looking comfortable at the crease.Ashwin was comfortable playing second fiddle, and Sundar once again showcased his batting abilities on home turf.The youngster was confident throughout, and the duo put up 80 runs together. But things quickly unravelled after England took the new ball.Jack Leach came back after a disappointing first day. The bounce off the pitch helped him considerably.Leach first got Ashwin with a delivery that jumped on the batsman, and the extra bounce did it again for the left-arm spinner as he sent Shahbaz Nadeem packing. Despite India’s loss of wickets, Washington Sundar was in his element. He batted with the tail superbly, attacking England’s pacers whenever he had the chance.But the youngster was left stranded on 85, missing out on what would have been a glorious century.Ishant Sharma couldn’t negotiate Anderson’s bouncer, with the England seamer getting his first wicket of the game.He got his second in his next over as Ben Stokes took a blinder at slip to dismiss Jasprit Bumrah for a duck.What target will England set for India? Joe Root's wicket will once again be key for IndiaEngland then came out to bat for two overs but made an ominous start. It was Ashwin’s turn to use the bounce to great effect for India, and Rory Burns edged one to slip.The visitors have a lead of 242 runs and will not be too bothered by losing a wicket before lunch. They will target a lead of 400+ today, while making sure that they are left with enough overs to bowl out India in the 2nd innings.Expect England to come out firing on all cylinders, as they pick up the pace post lunch.For India, the task is simple: build up the pressure to keep the scoring rate in check. Making England bat as long as possible will also increase their chances of survival in this Test.Taking wickets in quick succession can help their cause too.India’s bowlers would look to make the most of the new ball and the deteriorating day four pitch.
