New Delhi, June 22: Talking about India's defeat at the hands of Pakistan, former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid said that it's time India starts thinking about a wrist-spinning bowler.

"It is just something they're going to have to think about whether it's now time to try a wrist-spinner in the middle. It is nice to have Kuldeep Yadav coming in. He needs to be given a lot more game time. He has got ability, he has got a bit of mystery about him," Dravid said.

"We are playing on really flat wickets. It is tough on them, and it is not happening. If you want wickets in the middle, wrist-spinners and mystery spinners are the ones who look like taking wickets on some of these flat wickets with the fielding restrictions," the Under-19 coach said.

Former India captain Rahul Dravid also urged that the team management to take a call on whether they see Yuvraj and Dhoni as part of their plans for the 2019 World Cup.
