Sunil Gavaskar’s view on India’s playing 11 vs BAN

India is scheduled to play in the 17th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 against Bangladesh on October 19 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

With only a couple of days before the match against New Zealand, there was a lot of chatter about the possible inclusion of Ashwin in India’s playing 11 replacing Shardul Thakur because of left-hand batters in Bangladesh playing 11.

On this occasion, former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar who was annoyed by the decision to leave Ashwin out of the squad after the first match, had little reservation about India’s selection.

He discussed the possibility of resting ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah so that he can be fresh on the challenge against New Zealand in Dharamsala.

While speaking on the media he said, “They are playing the same team The only question would have been that because they are playing a big team like New Zealand in a couple of days’ time whether Bumrah should have been given a break.

Obviously, they had three days between the Pakistan game and this match against Bangladesh. They feel that’s enough. So it’s fine,” he concluded.

India has gone with six bowling options like their match against Afghanistan and Pakistan. Mohammad Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah are the lead pacers, while Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur are the other medium-pace options and Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja are the spin options.

“Don’t see any reason to change it (the XI). That’s important in this WC, keeping everybody in good space. The boys are in good shape, have good mental space as well and enjoying the cricket. So far so good, we want to continue this momentum,” Rohit said at the toss.

Bangladesh stand-in-captain Najmul Hossain Shanto won the toss and opted to bat. “He (Shakib) is struggling a bit, Nasum is coming in for him. We have some great memories against India, hopefully, we continue our form. I hope it’ll be a great match,” said Shanto.
