Akram calls for Harbhajan removal

Posted by on July 28, 2011 0 Comment

Pakistan legend Wasim Akram has called for India to include Amit Mishra in place of Harbhajan Singh for the next Test against England at Trent Bridge.

The senior India off-spinner bowled 56 overs in the Lord’s Test for just one wicket.

“Harbhajan looked off-colour at Lord’s. He got very little spin; his line was also very bad. I think it’s about time that Mishra came in. English batsmen have traditionally been poor against leg-spinners. Besides, Mishra is a very intelligent bowler. I saw him bowling in the IPL and he impressed me a lot. To cut it short, Mishra should play in the next match,” Akram told Mobile ESPN.

Akram said that Harbhajan was overshadowed off-spinning counterpart Graeme Swann.

“On the other hand (when compared to Harbhajsan), Graeme Swann bowled beautifully. He showed a lot of variation. I do not remember one occasion when he bowled a bad ball,” said Akram. Mid-Day
