Either he has fought with someone or said something to someone: Harbhajan Singh on Yuzvendra Chahal’s omission from Australia series

Yuzvendra Chahal’s omission from India’s ODI World Cup 2023 squad has surprised fans and pundits alike, given his experience and success in the format.

Chahal has played 72 ODIs for India, taking 121 wickets at an average of 27.13 and an economy rate of 5.27. He was also a key member of the Indian team that reached the semi-finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup. But his last ODI for India was in January this year against New Zealand.

Chahal is a world-class bowler and would have been a valuable asset to the team. However, the selectors have made their decision.

Former Indian cricket team spinner Harbhajan Singh expressed his disappointment with the decision to leave out Chahal for the ODI series against Australia.

Yuzvendra Chahal should have been here. He has not been given an opportunity. It is beyond my understanding. Either he has fought with someone or he has said something to someone, I don’t know,” Harbhajan said on his official YouTube channel.

“If we talk only about skill, his name should have been there in this team because a lot of Team India players are resting,” he added.

Harbhajan also spoke about how Washington Sundar and Ravichandran Ashwin have been brought back into the fold.

“First Washington Sundar, who wasn’t in the original Asia Cup squad, was called there. After that, a second player has been added for this series and that is R Ashwin,” he said.

“So somewhere or the other Team India are searching for off-spinners. They have probably realized their mistake that they haven’t picked an off-spinner in the team and that our bowlers can get into trouble if a lot of left-handers come in front of them. Why unnecessarily go through all this? It is beyond my understanding or they are going to make another mistake to rectify their earlier mistake,” he concluded.
