Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has lauded the selectors for picking Ajinkya Rahane in the squad for the World Test Championship Final 2023 scheduled to be played from June 7 between India and Australia at The Oval in London. Rahane is making a return a return to the Indian team after over a year as he last played a Test in January 2022 vs South Africa.
“He has captained India in so many matches and is a brilliant player as well. He has great technique. I feel the decision has been taken keeping in mind his present form and hence has been recalled because Shreyas Iyer is still not part of the team,” Harbhajan said in his latest YouTube video.
“And with Iyer absent, it serves as an opportunity for Rahane and it’s a big match. He is a big player as well and I hope he gives a big performance to justify the selection. I support this selection 100 percent and I feel it is a great decision. There was actually no other solution other than this,” Harbhajan added.
