Ravichandran Ashwin

Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was unhappy with India skipper Virat Kohli introducing offie R Ashwin as late as the 38th over on Day Three of the second Test at Lord's here on Saturday.

"It made no sense to me to introduce him [Ashwin] so late in the day," Harbhajan, who is on commentary duty here, told mid-day. Bhajji also felt that the Indian team management erred by not including a third seamer. "We should have had a third seamer in the playing XI," Harbhajan said. "We could have dropped Hardik Pandya and instead included another batsman. The batting unit is not able to back the wonderful job the bowlers are doing," he added.
