India’s experienced all-rounder player R Ashwin has made a big disclosure, he has also told why he could not be selected in the Lord’s Test.
A series of 5 test matches are being played between the Indian cricket team and the England cricket team. Where 2 Test matches have also ended, the third Test match will be played from August 25.
India’s decision to leave star all-rounder and off-spinner R Ashwin out of the playing XI for the first two Tests against England has sparked a debate.
India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s inclusion in the playing XI for Ashwin in the first two Tests has been termed as quite surprising by many cricket fans.
Similarly, India’s star cricketer R Ashwin has made a big disclosure. Ravichandran Ashwin says that he had to sit out after the last-minute change of Lord’s Test match.
While interacting with India’s fielding coach R Sridhar on Kutty Story on his YouTube channel’s show, Ashwin said that he was fully prepared to appear for the Lord’s Test.
But it was decided at the last minute that he cannot be a part of the team’s playing XI in this match. Ravichandran Ashwin further says that the funniest thing in this was that before the match I was told that there would be Hitweb, you should be fully prepared.
You may be given a chance in the second Test match at Lord’s. But then in the morning after coming for breakfast it started raining. Then I asked will you not tell me about Hitweb after the rains.
In fact, R Ashwin must have been upset that even after the rain started, he was not told that he was not going to play. Ashwin said why was I given such an expectation that ended in despair.
Actually, there was something that Kohli said even after losing the toss at Lord’s. We announced 12 in the group in which R Ashwin was a part.
But then how can there be a fourth simmer and an aggressive option depending on the pitch and the conditions. It makes the most sense to us as a team, said the captain of India.
Ashvin may not have been able to do well in England conditions but he was seen in full color in the final match of the Test Championship against New Zealand.
He had taken 5 wickets against New Zealand and had taken 5 wickets against Somerset for Surrey a few days before the start of the Test at Nottingham ground.
