While talking about Semifinals, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar said that he would like to see Jadeja and Shami playing for the team.

Tendulkar wants these two Indian players to play in Semifinals

India is all set to face New Zealand on July 9 at Manchester. Since the group match between the teams got washed out, India is facing New Zealand for the first time in this CWC19 tournament.

Jadeja featured in the playing XI for the first time against Sri Lanka on Saturday and picked up a wicket in his first over. Shami, though was expensive against England, picked up 4-wicket hauls in the other matches.

Sachin said, "Jadeja is one option I would like to throw on the table to the team management. I feel if Dinesh Karthik is going to bat at No. 7 then possible Jadeja could be an option there because his left-arm spin can come in handy. In a big match you would want a cover up because we are playing just 5 bowlers," reports India Today.

"I would also be tempted to bring back Mohammed Shami because against West Indies he was good on the same venue. When we talk about Old Trafford there are pleasant experiences for Shami, he came back into the team and picked up wickets. So I would be tempted to have him back," he added.
