Damning Verdict of Sunil Gavaskar on Ravi Bishnoi

Legendary batsman of Indian Cricket Team Sunil Gavaskar believes that despite becoming the top-run T20 bowler in the world, spinner Ravi Bishnoi is still new to the international stage and has considerable gaps in his bowling as of now. Bishnoi was surprisingly dropped from the playing 11 for the second T20 match against South Africa and was replaced with Kuldeep Yadav. Before the start of the match, Gavaskar said that the pitch in Gqeberha was more suited to Ravindra Jadeja than Ravi Bishnoi.
Gavaskar said, “If there is a bit of turning from the page, I think Jadeja will inflict the most damage. He bowls so flat that he doesn't allow the batsman any chance to go down the pitch and attack him, so if there is just a bit of help, his four overs could be telling as far as India are concerned.”
He further added that “Ravi Bishnoi is still finding his feet at the international levels; yes, he is the number one T20 bowler in the world, but again, if you get stuck with him, sometimes you tend to see him bowl faster and quicker. The faster you bowl on a good pitch, it gets that much easier for the batsman because the pace is exactly what they are looking for.”
