ENG vs IND 2021: “Justice For Ashwin” – Twitter Reacts As India Snub Ravichandran Ashwin At Oval

Team India have once again overlooked Ravichandran Ashwin for the fourth Test against England at the Oval, starting September 2. The visitors have made two changes to the playing XI, bringing in Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav in place of Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami.

Meanwhile, a lot was spoken over Ravichandran Ashwin’s inclusion in the playing XI leading up to the Oval Test. However, skipper Virat Kohli and the management have stuck to their much-debated ‘template’ once again despite a track record of Oval assisting the spinners as the game progresses.

While there has been a lot of talks about Ravichandran Ashwin’s performance in overseas conditions, but the veteran spinner has done enough to silence the critics. In the last three years, Ashwin has 18 wickets from four Tests in Australia, 15 scalps from five matches in England, seven from two in South Africa and three wickets in one game in New Zealand. Only in New Zealand, bowling on a green-top did his average go past 30.

Meanwhile, the fans were seemingly disappointed with Ravichandran Ashwin warming the benches once again. On that note, let’s take a look some of the tweets over Ravichandran Ashwin’s exclusion.

“For us it’s about partnerships, we don’t focus too much on individuals” – Virat Kohli

Speaking at the toss, Virat Kohli stressed about the set template and that they don’t focus on individual cricketers. When asked about Ravichandran Ashwin’s exclusion, Kohli said:

“For us, it’s about partnerships, we can’t focus too much on individuals. The opening partnerships have been good, it’s about getting more partnerships. We got a few days left on this tour, the series is poised nicely and there is going to be no shortage of effort from our side.”

Meanwhile, speaking about the toss, England captain Joe Root has won the toss and asked India to bat first on overhead conditions.
