Sunil Gavaskar has been making a lot of news lately with his assessment of potential contenders for the ICC T20 World Cup .

In his latest interaction with media, the little master has revealed the name of a player he believes will be one of the trump cards for Rohit Sharma.

Speaking to Star Sports, Gavaskar opined that Harshal Patel is one of the trump cards for Rohit, along with Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The 31-year-old is one of the finds for the Indian team. His slower balls and bowling at the death are a major plus for the Men in Blue in T20Is.

Harshal has the best slower balls in cricket. Patel missed out on the 2021 World Cup despite being the highest wicket-taker in the IPL (32). However, Patel would certainly be a part of this year’s World Cup.

Further, Patel bowled well in the recently concluded games against South Africa.

“He will be one of the trumps cards because you have Bhuvneshwar, Shami, and Bumrah as well. Brilliant for a skipper to have someone like him , He can bowl even in the powerplay where people are now going with a change of pace. So yes, he certainly should be part of the group.”
