New Delhi: Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar on Wednesday said the Indian team management must think of including Irfan Pathan in the team as his allround skills could come in handy in the shortest format.
After the 0-4 drubbing in the Test series, the induction of the limited overs specialists didn't bring about any change in India's fortune as neither the batsmen nor the bowlers created any impact as India lost the first Twenty20 International by 31 runs against Australia at Sydney on Wednesday.
"It is important to look at the all-round options. Twenty20 is harsh on the bowlers. So it is always an advantage if you have bowlers, who can come in handy with the bat and also are good fielders.
