Brett Lee says “He can play every single game” in T20 World Cup 2021. He states that Ravichandran Ashwin has the ability. Also, to feature in all matches for team India. However, he pointed out that this decision ultimately lies. In the hands of captain Kohli along with the selectors. In his conversation with ANI, Lee admitted to being a fan of the Indian off-spinner. Brett Lee put emphasis on the immense experience of the seasoned campaigner. It has of playing at the highest level.
“If you are after an angle about Ashwin, he is first and foremost a wonderful cricketer. I am a big fan and he has got a lot to offer, he is very very experienced. He is a great leader and of course, he can play every single game,” Brett Lee said.
‘They (team management) chose not to play him and that is on them. But whether he should be in the XI is up to the selectors and captain to make a call,” Lee added.
Moreover, the Indian bowling attack failed to pick up. In a single wicket in their opening clash against Pakistan. Ashwin has always been a wicket-taking option. I picked to play against New Zealand, he could very well be Virat Kohli’s go-to bowler in this encounter.
While Brett Lee managed to pick up. Just seven wickets from 13 games, he had an impressive rate of 7.41. Ravindra Jadeja is an automatic selection on the side. But Ashwin could be a like-for-like replacement for Varun Chakravarthy. If the team management looks to shake things up a bit.
Lastly, Brett Lee highlighted that New Zealand has most of its bases covered. When it comes to the shortest series. He mentions that they have bowlers who can trouble opposition batters with a swing. Also, Lee seemed impressed with the Blackcaps’ death bowlers.
