Harbhajan Singh highlighted that Washington SundarHis penchant for spinning the ball paid him ample dividends in his first ODI game against the West Indies.

Sundar returned the number 3/30 in his nine passes to help Team India beat the visitors in 176 runs. His elimination of Brandon King and Darren Bravo in the 12th inning of the West Indies put the home team ahead of the encounter.

While praising Washington Sundar’s performance during the Star Sports panel discussion, Harbhajan Singh recalled his interaction with the lanky cameraman in IPL. He say:

“When I talk to him [Sundar] last time, our game against them in Abu Dhabi, I told him that when he starts spinning the ball, it will be more difficult to play him. Today I am very happy that he turned the ball. When the first ball turns from the front, no hitter is still comfortable. “

The former Indian off-spinner player emphasized the importance of swinging the ball to pick up the ball. Harbhajan explains:

“When the ball is in the hand of the spinner, his role is to spin the ball. But when we play in the shorter format (T20), it sometimes seems like if we spin the ball, a big shot. can be done with the spin, which we set ourselves in mind. You’ll only get the ball if you spin the ball, even the fast pitchers are throwing the ball straight.”

Washington Sundar (in the press) said “Rohit Sharma always asks us to focus on strengths. Don’t bring too many things. I am focusing on the available balls and my strengths.”

Washington Sundar is often used in limited cricket to limit the running stream. However, he was pierced in yesterday’s encounter because in addition to two early goals, he also broke the 78-game partnership between Fabian Allen and Jason Holder.
