Welcome back test cricket,after claiming the numero uno status in the ODI cricket, it’s time for team India to reclaim the numero uno rank in the test cricket,but keeping the fact that pitches will suit the spinners team india has picked up three specialist spinners named Ravi Ashwin ,Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh,looking at the past series record it looks certain that Ravi Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha will lead the attack ,but all of a sudden MS Dhoni picked two spinners and two seamers and one all rounder named jadeja and left out p ojha from the final squad,well i think playing two speamers is totally an waste in the pitch which has no assist for the fast bowlers and helping the spinners from the very first session,ojha did well in the last test series in home against England by picking up 20 wickets in four Tests, while Harbhajan and Ashwin took two and 14 wickets respectively. In the second and third Tests, Ojha had consecutive five-wicket hauls.so despite such brilliant performance Ojha couldn’t make into the final eleven,Ishant Sharma and Bhubaneswar Kumar both are finding difficulty to bowl at a decent speed of 140kmph so that it can trouble the Kangaroos ,so I would suggest that India should play with three specialist spinners and with one medium pace bowler, With 20 wickets, ojha was India’s highest wicket taker in the Test series against England. The left-arm spinner even outdid R Ashwin. Ojha may not have tasted much success in the Irani Cup against Mumbai, but he remains a vital cog in India’s spin bowling options. With Australia up next, Ojha is looking forward to spinning a web around the tourists. He spoke to HT about his desire to help India triumph against Australia.
