2 1/2 Bowlers that India plays with. Two spinners and Umesh who can bowl only when the ball gets old. Ishant sharma has been a mere passenger for a decade. Just an up and down bowler who celebrates the odd wicket he may get in a test as if he got a five wicket haul. TO add insult to injury he is pathetic on the field and with the bat. And he has been around since 2007.
Absolutely SG is spot on, especially when none of our spin bowlers are extraordinary and the pitch is not assisting fast bowlers a third spinner is far more better option than picking up an extra batsman.
BUVNESHWAR KUMAR SHOULD REPLACE ISHANT SHARMA IN NEXT TEST. ISHANT IS GOOD FOR NOTHING. SECONDLY AMIT MISHRA AS FIFTH BOWLER IN TEAM INDIA CAN BE VERY GOOD AS HIS BALL TURNS VERY WELL ON THESE PITCHES.
