India worried over Kumble, Harbhajan successors


The Indian selection committee chairman Dilip Vengsarkar is worried of long term consequences of drought in a new generation of quality spin bowlers in the country to replace Anil Kumble and company once they hang their boots from international cricket.

He feels the production line of outstanding spin bowlers which has sustained the Indian cricket for more than 60 years is in danger of drying up with no long term successor in sight for “irreplaceable” Kumble.

“We are obviously worried that apart from Harbhajan and Powar, we don’t have anybody ready for international cricket. Now nobody knows where talent is,” he said.

He said not only was the pool of talent depressingly small, it’s being further eroded by young spinners emerging with flawed bowling actions.

“We always tend to neglect what we have in abundance; we run after other things. We have been concentrating on fast bowlers and now we are getting good fast bowlers, but we haven’t focused enough on spinners,” he said.
