India vs New Zealand : Sachin want Jadeja
India’s batting great Sachin Tendulkar spoke on the line-up that India could go with for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final against New Zealand at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
Tendulkar felt Ravindra Jadeja could be a handy option for India, even though the management has played him in only one match so far.
“Jadeja is one option I would like to throw on the table to the team management. I feel if Dinesh Karthik is going to bat at No. 7 then possible Jadeja could be an option there because his left-arm spin can come in handy. In a big match, you would want a cover-up because we are playing just 5 bowlers,” Sachin told India Today.
Tendulkar felt that people need to stop looking and talking about the final and that New Zealand will be a tough opponent.
“New Zealand, it’s a very good team and underrated. They have performed consistently well. It’s not going to be a cakewalk for India. We have to go out and repeat doing what we have been doing for a number of games.
“Whoever is talking about India already getting into the finals, does not understand cricket. The players and support staff will only be focussed on this match. Now that we have entered the semis, don’t start talking about the final.”
