Sunil Gavaskar leaves out Kuldeep Yadav as India's frontline spinner for T20 World Cup, names replacement

With just months left for the ultimate championship of the giants to begin in June, legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has handpicked India's frontline spinner, and surprisingly it is not Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal.

Sunil Gavaskar leaves out Kuldeep Yadav as India's frontline spinner for T20 World Cup, names replacement

Legends and experts in cricket are selecting their choices for the Indian team ahead of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, which is set to start on June 1 in the USA and West Indies. Legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has handpicked India's frontline spinner for the T20 World Cup 2024.

During the discussion of India's spin-bowling team for the Twenty20 World Cup, Gavaskar went so far as to explain why young player Ravi Bishnoi is superior to his peers. "Ravi Bishnoi for me because apart from bowling, he is a very good fielder. He is a better fielder than Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal," Gavaskar said to Star Sports.

The former Indian skipper also asserted that Bishnoi could also chip in crucial cameos with the willow as a lower-order batter for Team India. "He can bat as well, the way he applied his brains and won his side the match with his calmness in the last IPL," He continued. "I feel he and Avesh Khan had won their side the match against RCB. So Ravi Bishnoi for me," Gavaskar added.

Also, Bishnoi was instrumental in India's series win over Australia after the World Cup and was named the Player of the Series at the time. Meanwhile, Kuldeep bagged 15 wickets for India at the 2023 World Cup.
