    Pragyan Ojha or R Ashwin, who should have replaced Harbhajan Singh?

    Pragyan Ojha has replaced Harbhajan Singh in the India cricket team. Do you think Ashwin would have been a better choice? Whom will you choose as a replacement of Harbhajan Singh, Ashwin or Pragyan Ojha?

    Hello Everyone,

    I think Amit Mishra is the most deserving candidate for the role of a spinner in the absence of Harbhajan Singh, as he is also the part of the Indian Team touring England.

    Pragyan Ojha is not as much attacking bowler as Mishra. And Ashwin also is not a bowler for the test matches. Amit Mishra is also good with bat, and can contribute to the team with his batting also.

    Thanks

    None of them are test calibre spinners though all of them proved their mettle in Indian soil for one dayers/IPL etc. Test is a different temperament, particularly for away matches and it needs experience, skills and ability to spin the ball even if the pitch is not in favour. India had very good spinners in Trio, Bedi, Prasanna, Venkat and later followed by cricketers like Doshi, Hirwani, Maninder Singh. The present situation is a culmination of the dominance of One Daysrs and IPL. We may have to wait for couple of years to see good spinners who can win the Tests.
