Shardul Thakur is a guy who bowls instinctively and gets wickets, somewhere that there is a brain ticking, this is where you need to be, so he is one bowler who will always get you wickets,” said Sanjay Manjrekar.
“But if it becomes the game of attrition then they are at the premium, you got to use him carefully. But he will keep you getting wickets, that’s why he was my 3rd choice seamer in the playing 11, what’s happened today again and you can’t say it is his wicket taking luck, he just knows how to take wickets and even today what we saw it just for this ability,” he added.
