Mohammad Siraj may not play in second T20? Two to replace !!


  • Substitutes if not Siraj?
  • Potential for young players
  • Will Herschel Patel make his debut?

Team India is confident of a convincing victory in the first T20I against New Zealand. India won the match by 5 wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the series. The team is worried about the injury of pacer Mohammad Siraj while playing in the second T20 at Ranchi. He was injured while bowling in the first T20. Vinaya was injured in the finger.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar are the other two pacers who have played for India. In the second T20, India may field one of Avesh Khan and Herschelle Patel. Herschel has won the Purple Cap with the most wickets in the recent IPL. Avesh Khan, who played for Delhi, was second in the chase.

Former cricketers Ajay Jadeja and Dinesh Karthik said in a discussion on Cricket Bus that India should replace Siraj with Herschelle Patel. “Both are playing in good form in their careers. Team India can test anyone with courage. Herschel will be better off with a slightly slower wicket in Ranchi,” Karthik said.

Jadeja also supports playing Herschel. Herschel can bowl in both death overs and power play. Jadeja also pointed out that Herschel is a tactical bowler who can beat the bat with his slow balls.
