Former Indian cricketer Madan Lal on Saturday showered praises on Harshal Patel for his brilliant bowling display against New Zealand in the second T20I.

At the same time, he expressed concern over Yuzvendra Chahal’s continuous exclusion from the playing XI, saying “they (management) are making a mistake.” A superb bowling performance by debutant Harshal (2/25), followed by fantastic fifties by KL Rahul (65 off 49) and Rohit Sharma (55 off 36) guided India to a seven-wicket win over the Kiwis in the second T201 on Friday, giving the hosts a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
