Harbhajan takes a dig at Ashwin, says spinner’s failure reason behind India’s loss

“There was so much help available on this wicket (Southampton) for the off-spinners. Just landing the ball at that particular rough patch would have fetched a lot of wickets. That is exactly what Moeen Ali did and got so many wickets. India lost the match where Moeen Ali bowled better than R Ashwin. For the first time, I saw England spinners bowling better than our spinners. Him (Ashwin) not being able to take wickets is the reason why we are 1-3 behind in the series,” Harbhajan Singh told India Today.

 

“Ashwin is a great bowler and has achieved so much for India. But he failed to take wickets when it mattered the most — that is on Day 3. Had he taken just two or three wickets, not even a five-wicket haul, then India would have been chasing a target of 160-170 runs for victory which was very much achievable.”

 

“I really don’t know how serious was Ashwin’s injury. If it was serious then the team management should have known it. And if he was really fit then he failed to bowl like it was expected of him. Moeen Ali was making a comeback in the England team and won the Man of the Match award. He is a very good bowler though does not rate himself so highly. He will always bowl better than the rest as his trajectory is very good. Indian team has not been able to find any solution to his bowling since 2014 when he performed exceptionally well against us at the same venue,” he said.

When and where does Bhajji take these digs? He speaks nothing in comm box and sits like a statue.

 

Ian Ward: "Bhajji how do you access Ashwin's bowling so far. He is not being that effective"

Bhajji: "Yes he is not being effective"

 

Silence

 

Ian Ward: "Ok, you think he should he should utilize the rough more?"

Bhajji: "Yes there is a big rough...you know and he should use it more"

 

:phehe:

May be he is a “tubelight”

Bhajji is 100% right. 

 

If anything he is being measured cos he doesn't want to appear jealous.

 

Plus when you hav won the battle (no one is going to rate Ashwin ahead of Bhajji until he does something overseas), you dont hav to go overboard. 

 

Bhajji is actually being pretty kind to Ashwin, whatever be the motive.

I am no fan of Ashwin but I absolutely despise this Harbhajan.Ashwin failed but didn't chicken out citing a injury.

Unfortunately He is there as an expert so he made a valid point but it was funny that last year he bashed Dhoni and now after Dhoni’s abysmal batting at Lords he was defending MS and congratulating him for 10,000 runs next year he might change his tunes again as he is heading to Delhi Daredevils as a mentor won’t be surprised if he promotes Nadeem or Amit Mishra.

Maybe he is better in print interviews where he can think his answers, take few minutes and then speak.. or some one writes for him :cantstop:

She actually gave him a very classy reply. Isha Guha is a very average commentator and analyst. I will go ahead and say she is pathetic but thanks to Bhajji,she got the standout moment of her commentary career. 

 

On Topic though Bhajji is spot on with his criticism. However if he is consistent on his criticisms on pathetic team selections,coaching,captaincy and failures of other players apart from Ashwin it is fine. If he is mum on everything else and is targeting just Ashwin then there is malice.

Manjrekar is a moron can you imagine him during the Asia cup will go ga ga for Rohit as captain and might ask or say Rahane should have been included and then with Pakistan there his Imran love will be at full display he rarely says anything good about India.

“Virat Kohli will have to talk to Ashwin about why he looks so impatient. He is bowling six different deliveries in an over. Ability-wise Moeen Ali is not better than Ashwin. Rather Ashwin is twice as good as Ali as a spinner,” Ganguly told India TV. “But Ali keeps his bowling simple. On the other hand, Ashwin keeps experimenting with the doosra, wrong’un and leg-spin rather than utilising the rough. Sometimes in Test cricket, you have to become boring to win matches.”

Bhajji is one hundred percent right, Ashwin the bozo is root cause followed by inept and useless openers.Bhajji and Kumble atleast won few matches in SENA but Ashwin has been the biggest  HTB. He is simply not good enough period.

No, he does.   Statements like,  " it's good to see India compete although they are expected to lose "   while thinking   (  Imran  :drool:  :drool:  )        :phehe:
