- The all-rounder, who has won India a few matches with both bat and ball before, has battled recently.
- In the as of late finished up ODI series against Sri Lanka, Pandya batted in two innings.
- Chahar scored a wonderful 69 not out in the second ODI, removing India from a pit and directing the group to an exciting three-wicket win.
The big cheeses have disappeared, though Pandya’s job with the ball is restricted after his back medical procedure. As a result, the significant thumps have been far, and few and his adequacy as a medium-pacer has additionally plunged.
During the recently ended ODI series against Sri Lanka:
In the as of late finished up ODI series against Sri Lanka, Pandya batted in two innings. While in the second ODI, he was out for a duck; the all-rounder got a beginning in the third game before getting out LBW to a turning ball by left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama.
Something almost identical unfurled in the principal T20I also, as Pandya was excused for ten and couldn’t give India the healthy blows he once effortlessly used.
Pandya cannot bank on past reputation alone:
Protected to say, Pandya can’t put money on past standing alone and the more often he neglects to get rolling, the more tension on him will mount. Saying something regarding something similar, Sunil Gavaskar has made a fascinating point.
The previous India skipper feels that India have reinforcement all-rounder choices in two players – who, whenever prepared appropriately, are more than equipped for taking up the all-rounder’s place for India.
As Gavaskar stated at sports talks:
“There is back-up. You, as of late, saw Deepak Chahar; he demonstrated that he could be an all-rounder. But, you didn’t offer Bhuvneshwar Kumar that chance.
Two-three years prior, when India played in Sri Lanka, then, at that point, he, alongside Dhoni, had dominated India a match.
The situation in that match was like the second ODI. They had lost 7-8 wickets, and Bhuvneshwar and Dhoni had dominated that game for India,” Gavaskar said on Sports Tak.
In the second ODI, Chahar scored a remarkable 69:
Chahar scored a wonderful 69 not out in the second ODI, removing India from a pit and directing the group to an exciting three-wicket win. Bhuvneshwar, then again, has three half-hundreds of years in Tests and one in ODIs, while having a batting normal of 42.75 in First-Class cricket.
Gavaskar feels there is no motivation behind why Chahar and Bhuvneshwar can’t be prepared into appropriate all-rounders.
Further, Gavaskar stated on the Show:
“You never at any point thought, however, these two players could be all-rounders as well. He has that batting ability. You’re just taking a gander at one individual.
What has occurred in the last 2-3 years is that other people who merited significantly more freedoms haven’t got them.
What’s more, that is the reason, and presently today, you are taking a gander at one player and saying, ‘goodness he’s not in structure’. On the off chance that you offer these folks chances, you can discover all-rounders,” he added.
