Discussions regarding Ashwin’s selection in the XI started right from the moment when he was dropped from the first Test. The Indian off-spinner only plays one format these das and thus getting dropped the paying XI came as a shock to many. They even questioned the team selection for the first two Tests.
“The funny thing was, before the match, they were like, ‘There’s a heatwave. You please be ready mate. You might play.’ Upon coming to breakfast in the morning, rains started lashing out. I asked, ‘Won’t you tell about heatwave after it came? Why gave me hope only for it to end in disappointment!” said Ashwin revealing the interesting story behind his selection dilemma.
England will face off India in the third Test match which is scheduled to take place at Headingley, Leeds on Wednesday 25 August. Meanwhile former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has opined that once again Ashwin will not be included in playing XI.
“Not at Headingley. I don’t see R Ashwin playing in the next encounter. But then there is still some time to go, there might be injuries and all of that but I don’t think India will go with the combination of two spinners and three fast bowlers. Lord’s was a good opportunity where you could have played two spinners. Pitch was also dry, the Hundred was also being played. But up north – Headingly, Leeds – where do you need spinners that much” Chopra said.
