Harbhajan Singh the Indian Veteran is in the headlines yet once again. He has been around for a while now and he has been following the domestic sports with great intent where he spotted Akshay Wakhare a great performer in the domestic circuit. Akshay Wakhare has been a consistent performer of the domestic circuit and there is no looking back for him as he is still performing with consistency at the age of 33.
It may be a debatable topic with his age concerns but he is defying the debate for now through his consistency in the domestic arena. Harbhajan Singh was in full praise of Sanju Samson and he also commented that he could be a better option at No.4 for Indian Men’s Cricket Team.
On Saturday, he picked up his 19th first-class five-for to power India Red to Duleep Trophy glory. India Red had already taken a 157-run lead in the first innings before Wakhare’s five for just 13 helped them bowl out Green for just 119 in 39.5 overs. India Red won the title-decider by an innings and 38 runs. Wakhare picked up his five wickets in just 5.5 overs.
The Veteran spinner is so impressed with Wakhare that he said to the extent that he is not far away from the India call-up. He used Twitter as a medium to express his opinion in which he said the following:
“Akshay Wakhare consistent performer with the ball from the last couple of years in 1st class cricket back to back Ranji trophy champion last two years. Great spell yesterday 5 for 13 against India green. Winning another championship for his team.way to go. Indian test squad calling 🏏💪”
