WTC Final 2023 | India will have to play fearless cricket to win ICC title: Harbhajan Singh

London: Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that the current team has not shown the fearlessness that is needed to win the ICC title and four fast bowlers in the World Test Championship final (WTC Final 2023). The decision to take off was not correct. The condition of the Indian team, which could not win a single ICC title in the last ten years, is bad in the WTC final against Australia (India vs Australia). Harbhajan, who came here as a commentator, advised the Indian players to play without worrying about the result. There is no dearth of skill, he said. The more big matches you play, the better. I think there is a need to play openly in such matches. We’re getting more defensive. We have to play freely regardless of the result.” He said, “Put the responsibility on the players and they will surely complete their work. Pressure should be put on them that if they don’t play well, some will be dropped and some will not (they will lose confidence).” He needs to be given the confidence that even if you don’t play well, try your best, says Harbhajan. That’s how cups are won. Play without fear.” Ravichandran Ashwin, the world’s number one Test bowler, had to sit out as India went with four fast bowlers and one spinner. Harbhajan said, “If the match is of five days, the bowlers have to be selected after seeing the conditions of five days. Ashwin is an excellent bowler and four fast bowlers were not needed. The fourth and fifth days are also as important as the first day and it is important how you play on those days. He said, “Perhaps the management did not think much about it and fielded four spinners. Even if someone like Mohammed Siraj or Mohammed Shami was sitting outside, it would have made sense to field four fast bowlers. It would have been better to drop Ashwin and play two spinners instead of four fast bowlers. (agency)
