IND vs NZ: Bhubaneswar should be replaced by Shardul Thakur .. VVS Laxman ..


India will take on New Zealand today as part of the T20 World Cup Super 12. However, former cricketer VVS Laxman suggested that Shardul Thakur be taken in place of Bhubaneswar in this match. He believes the T20 World Cup could be the last international tournament for Bhubaneswar. The ground pace has dropped significantly over the past two seasons. He said that he has not been competing with his rival Deepak Chahar anywhere in recent times. He said he thought his experience would be useful though. Laxman believes Virat Kohli should pick Shardul Thakur for Bhuvneshwar Kumar in Sunday’s match at the Dubai International Stadium.

VVS Laxman, who spoke exclusively on the Star Sports Show game plan ahead of the India-New Zealand clash at the ICC Men’s T20 World 2021, spoke on why Shardul Thakur should be given priority over Bhuvneshwar Kumar in today’s playing XI. “I will opt for Shardul Thakur. Because Shardul can run with the bat and can also take wickets. Taking Shardul increases the strength of the batting line-up. So, I will definitely go with Shardul before Bhuvneshwar Kumar. “He is an experienced bowler, but if you think about the combination of balance and playing XI, I probably like Shardul more than Bhuvne,” Laxman said.

From now on, every match is going to be crucial for India. If India wins this match as well as Afghanistan, Namibia and Scotland, they will have a chance to advance to the semis. The way India played in the opening match disappointed the fans. It is a matter of concern that the bowlers did not take a single wicket in the match with Pak. Pakistan bowlers took wickets on the same pitch. The semis chances for India will be complicated if they do not show their level of play against New Zealand now.
