Former Team India spinner Harbhajan Singh said after India’s T20 World Cup semi-final loss against England in Adelaide on Thursday that recently retired people like Ashish Nehra The player should be made the coach and Hardik Pandya should be made the captain. Harbhajan said that Team India needs someone who understands the format better and has played T20 cricket recently. In the year 2022, the team of Gujarat Titans won the title in its first season itself. Hardik is the captain of this team and Nehra is the coach.
Harbhajan told India Today, “Not just the captain, you can bring in someone who has recently retired from T20 cricket, who understands the format. Rahul Dravid has been my partner and we played a lot of cricket together. He understands cricket very well. I think if you don’t want to drop Dravid as coach from T20, then bring someone who has recently retired to help him.
Someone like ashish nehra should be brought
Harbhajan further said, “Someone like Ashish Nehra should be brought in, who understands cricket much better. Look what he has done for Gujarat Titans. The presence of Ashish will also encourage young players. You can bring in any former player who retired recently. Hardik Pandya’s innings of 63 runs in 33 balls was washed away. England beat India by 10 wickets on Thursday and will play against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup final.
Hardik Pandya’s choice for captaincy
Harbhajan talked about making Hardik the captain. He said that there is no better option than this right-handed all-rounder. Pandya has been given the command of the team for the New Zealand tour. He said, “Hardik Pandya is my choice for captaincy. There is no other better option. He is the best player in the team and you need more players like him in the team.”
