Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria is in awe of the Indian bench strength. The young team India is currently playing an ODI series against Sri Lanka and has outplayed the hosts in the first two ODIs. The likes of Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw and Deepak Chahar have played a pivotal role in helping India claim an impressive series win.
One of the biggest positives from the series so far has been the reemergence of the spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep especially has looked a lot more confident in the series and Kaneria feels that Rahul Dravid has a big role to play in it. Kaneria further lauded the Indian team and said that India’s B team is capable to win against a full-strength Pakistan unit.
“The way this Indian team is performing, the way Rahul Dravid has worked with the Indian team he deserves all the praise. The way he has motivated Kuldeep Yadav, even this India B team can certainly beat Pakistan,” Danish Kaneria said on his YouTube Channel.
Post the ODI series, India will also play three T20Is against the same opposition. While the Indian squad looks settled, there are two or three spots left in India’s squad for the T20 World Cup. The Sri Lanka series and the second leg of IPL will be the final opportunity for the players to make a case for themselves. Kaneria feels that playing the IPL in UAE will be a massive advantage to India. He further predicted an India – West Indies T20 World Cup final.
“India is not playing any limited over cricket before the T20 World Cup but playing IPL will keep them in good stead. I think it will be India vs West Indies in the final,” Danish Kaneria concluded.
