Harbhajan Singh never shies away from speaking his mind. He has again taken potshots at India’s off-spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin. The veteran Indian spinner said the duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja can prove to be a good combination for India going forward.

Harbhajan Singh was quoted as saying by India Today, “Ashwin’s home record is impressive but his overseas record is not the same. That’s why the team management thinks Kuldeep should be preferred over Ashwin. He made most of the opportunity he got. To get five wickets away like he did at Sydney is no mean task. I think Jadeja did well too by performing at Melbourne, Sydney and at the Oval in England. So I think this spin duo could take things forward from here.”

“With what Ravi bhai has said about Kuldeep being your no.1 spinner in overseas conditions, I think the team is now going to that zone where they are looking for wicket-taking options. Look, Ashwin started off so well in England and was a joy to watch in the first Test but he lost his way as the series progressed and Moeen Ali overshadowed him. It’s a tough call but I am sure it’s in the best interest of the team,” the 38-year-old further added.
