London. Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that the current team has not shown enough courage to win the ICC title and the decision to go with four fast bowlers in the final of the World Test Championship was not the right one.

The Indian team, which has not won a single ICC title in the last ten years, is in a bad shape in the WTC final against Australia. Harbhajan, who came here as a commentator, advised the Indian players to play without worrying about the result. .

He said that there is no shortage of skills. The bigger matches you play, the better. I think there is a need to play freely in such matches. We are getting more defensive. We have to play freely regardless of the result.

He said, “Place the responsibility on the players and they will definitely do their job. Pressure should be put on them that if they don’t play well, some will be dropped and some will not (their confidence will go down).” Harbhajan said, “They need to be reassured. That even if they don’t. Play well, they can do their best. Do your best, that’s how cups are won. Play without fear.

World number one Test bowler Ravichandran Ashwin had to sit out as India fielded four fast bowlers and a spinner. Harbhajan said, “The match is a five-day match, so given the five-day conditions, the selection of bowlers is It has to be done.” Ashwin is a brilliant bowler and four fast bowlers were not needed. The fourth and fifth days are just as important as the first day and how you play on those days is important.

“Perhaps the management didn’t think too much about it and fielded four spinners,” he said. Even if someone like Mohammad Siraj or Mohammad Shami had sat out, it would have made sense to field four fast bowlers. Apart from Ashwin, it would have been better to play two spinners instead of four fast bowlers.
