Pragyan Ojha replace Harbhajan Singh for 2nd Test
While team India comprehensively defeated the Australians in the first Test at Chennai, Harbhajan Singh who was playing in his 100th Test continued to struggle.
Out of the 20 wickets scalped by Indian bowlers, 17 were shared between Ashwin and Jadeja while Bhajji managed to pick just three wickets, two of which came in the second innings.
The Australians struggled against the Indian spin attack as none of the pacers apart from James Pattinson managed to make an impact. Pattinson who bowled in short spells looked Australia’s best bowler as he picked six wickets in a match which was highly dominated by spinners.
Meanwhile the experts too have reckoned that Pragyan Ojha who did a brilliant job against England deserves a place in the playing XI.
