9) Ravichandran Ashwin
The mercurial off-spinner provided his services when required, claiming the wicket of Latham to provide the breakthrough for India in the first innings. Since the conditions were conducive to the pacers, Ashwin wasn’t relied upon much, coming back only to dismiss Neil Wagner as he finished with 2/28 in 15 overs.
He also scored 22 runs at a quick rate in the first innings. The second innings with the ball was a different story. Ashwin looked like India’s most threatening bowler, picking up the only two wickets that fell. Since the target was on the lower side, the pair of Williamson and Taylor played him out safely before taking on the other bowlers.
