During the group stage in the United States, India decided to go for three frontline pacers and two spinners.

But in the Super 8 stage against Afghanistan, Mohammed Siraj was dropped for Kuldeep Yadav to provide the service of an additional spinner. Hardik Pandya featured as the third pacer, while Shivam Dube provided another seamer option.

Manjrekar evaluated India's playing options, which feature a wide variety of players and feels that the team should go for the winning combination according to the surface.

"I think it's always nice to have many options, and that's just, I think is for the foremost for any team management when there are exciting options to choose from. So I don't think that is such an issue, but they must remain true to what would be the best playing 11 to get India to win in certain conditions," Manjrekar said on 'Caught & Bold' on Disney Hotstar.

India enjoyed a flawless run in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Featuring in Group A, they defeated Ireland, Pakistan and the co-hosts, the USA, to qualify for the Super 8.
