Former off-spinner Harbhajan Singh of the Indian Cricket Team has shared his perception of the future of Indian cricket and his vision for building India’s T20 team. With his vast experience and deep knowledge of the game, Harbhajan Singh highlighted the potential of young talents such as Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, Tilak Varma, and many more. While stressing on the importance of taking care of young players and building a dynamic team, Bhaji’s strategic recommendations shed some light on the exciting prospects that lie ahead of Indian cricket.
Harbhajan Singh said, “If we are talking about batsmen, then I can say that Shubhman Gill has the potential. Along with him, I think Yashasvi too has the potential to be the future of India. I think Yashasvi is this year’s most impressive player, and in the years to come, he will definitely play for Team India. Shubhman Gill will also be there; maybe he will be the captain as well. I’m talking about the future here. And I also think that Tilak Varma and Rinku Singh will also be there, so I’m making a squad for the future of the Indian team. They are all unbelievable talents.”
He also spoke about the idea of how he would build the India T20 team for the future, saying, “If we look at the current form, and if we want to go in the direction of youth, then Yashasvi is the best option available. When we lost the T20 World Cup in Dubai last year, there was much speculation that we should build a team around youngsters. Without saying anyone’s name on who should be left out of the squad, I think Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, and Shubhman Gill, under Hardik Pandya’s captaincy, should form a new team all together. ” If Hardik should be captain and Yashasvi and Gill should open the batting, along with Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rinku Singh, Tilak Varma, and Nitish Rana, then this team will have a lot of potential.”
