Aakash Chopra has questioned India’s absence of wicket-taking spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal from the roster for the forthcoming ODI series against Bangladesh. 

The Men in Blue will play its neighboring country in a three-match One-Day International series, with the first game taking place in Mirpur on Sunday, December 4. The Indian roster of 17 has no wrist spinners, with Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, and Shahbaz Ahmed serving as the three spin-bowling alternatives.

Aakash Chopra Disappointed By Non-Selection Of Kuldeep Yadav And Yuzvendra Chahal

In a video previewing the first ODI, Aakash Chopra voiced his regret that Kuldeep and Chahal had been overlooked, saying: 

“I am a little disappointed that you have gone to Bangladesh and not taken your wicket-taking spinners, you have gone with all-rounders. You have Sundar, Axar and Shahbaz; which means you need all-rounders but there is no place for Kuldeep and Chahal.”

Chopra believes that the pitches in Bangladesh will be ideal for spin bowling. The former Indian batter went on to explain: 

“It baffles me a little bit because when you play against Bangladesh in these conditions, it will be the Dhaka ground, the ball will be turning, they will make turning pitches where Shakib (Al Hasan) and Mehidy (Hasan Miraz) will do well and they can play Nasum (Ahmed) if they want.” 

Aakash Chopra, on the other hand, admitted that finger spinners could be useful on spin-friendly surfaces and observed: 

“So you will have low-scoring pitches here, they are not 325 or 350-run pitches. So in that case, it is better if you have wicket-taking spinners although it is also true that if the conditions are extremely spin-friendly, the all-rounders also do a decent job. But you should have taken them, that’s what I feel.”

The decision not to select a wrist spinner for the ODI series against Bangladesh is quite surprising. Kuldeep and Chahal were both members of India’s squad for the recent ODI series against New Zealand, however, the former did not play. 

You Have Got An All-rounder In The Form Of Washington Sundar: Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra finished by naming the five bowlers India is likely to field in the first One-Day International against Bangladesh, stating: 

“You have got an all-rounder in the form of Sundar. So you will play him, you have no other option. He will bat also at No. 7, you can use him as a floater as well. After that Axar Patel, Deepak Chahar, and then you have Siraj and Shami as your two fast bowlers.”

Due to a shoulder issue, Mohammad Shami has been ruled out of the ODI series against Bangladesh. Umran Malik has been appointed as the seasoned pacer’s replacement.
