“Virat Kohli’s team selection is going pathetic day by day” – Fans are not happy with Ravichandran Ashwin’s exclusion from the Indian side for the Second Test against England.
RAVI ASHWIN AGAIN LOST THE CHANCE TO MAKE THE CUT AGAINST ENGLAND
What’s more, from previous cricketers to fans, a few groups have offered their viewpoints on the oversight of Ravichandran Ashwin from the Indian playing XI. Both Wasim Jaffer and Michael Vaughan asked why Ashwin was not chosen in the Indian playing XI.
Senior spinner R Ashwin’s rejection from the playing XI of the main Test among India and England in Nottingham came as a shock to many. Thinking about his extraordinary structure in the two or three-Test series, Ashwin looked one of the specific starters for some, be that as it may, he was forgotten about as India went with four pacers in the Test match.
Virat Kohli and the group the board have by and by proceeded with the pattern of picking four quicks as the accomplished Ishant Sharma supplanted harmed Sharul Thakur in the playing XI for the continuous second Test at the notorious Lord’s Cricket Ground. In spite of being one of the top picks to have Shardul’s spot in the XI, Ashwin indeed neglected to take care of business.
Indian skipper Kohli was gotten some information about the thought behind the choice to supplant Shardul with Ishant and not Ashwin in the Test match. Kohli clarified that Ashwin was essential for the plans yet Ishant was liked over him because of the conditions and the pitch at Lord’s.
“We announced 12 within the group and Ashwin definitely was part of that. But after looking at the pitch, the conditions, and considering how a fourth seamer can be an attacking option, this makes the most sense for us as a team,” Kohli said at the toss when asked about Ashwin’s absence”.
Here is how the former cricketers and fans reacted to Ravichandran Ashwin’s omission from the Indian playing XI
The first Test between the two sides ended in a draw in Nottingham after the fifth day’s play was washed out completely due to rain. India will be hoping to open their win account at Lord’s against a Stuart Broad-less England and take 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
