R Ashwin: Ravichandran Ashwin attended the Indian team press conference on Thursday. The media widely asked him many questions. The first was his bowling against Afghanistan and the second was Friday’s match against Scotland. Interestingly, the first question dominated the press conference as a whole. He returned to international cricket four years later. What does he actually want to say? In fact, it has become a very common discussion in dressing room sources that captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are not the first choice R Ashwin. India’s current mentor Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) has also reportedly disliked Ashwin.
Going into the depths .. It is true that R Ashwin could not get a place in playing-11 in fast bowling despite consistently performing well. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav also had to wait a long time due to their good performances. Later Ravindra Jadeja also returned to the team but Ashwin had to wait for luck. He was also selected in the T20 World Cup 2021 squad. In the important match against Pakistan and New Zealand, Virat Kohli gave priority to Varun Chakraborty. However, India lost by a huge margin in both the matches.
Speaking at the press conference, Ashwin said it was a special moment for him when he was selected in the T20 World Cup squad. Ashwin says- ” Life is like a ‘circle’. For some this ‘circle’ is small .. for others it is very big. I learned to exercise restraint in the bad phase. I had to prove my use to someone other than myself. I keep working hard.
Ashwin wanted to say that good and bad come to everyone in life. Shane Warne also gave the example of Sachin Tendulkar regarding his success. Ashwin also answered the question of whether victory over Afghanistan was more about bowling sparingly as a spinner than taking wickets.
“I have been playing in this format since 2007-08. This game is changing very fast. There are always ‘dot balls’ behind the wickets that put pressure on the batsmen. For me every match is a 24 ball event. Every time I want to win. He described the victory in the match against Afghanistan as a “special night” for me.
Relations with cricket were severed four years ago.
In fact, everything was fine before the 2017 Champions Trophy final. Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja played almost regularly in the Indian team as spinners. But, the situation changed completely after the Champions Trophy final on June 18, 2017. The title fight with Pakistan went on under Virat’s captaincy. Batting first, Pakistan scored 338 runs. With the exception of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya, all the other Indian bowlers have become expensive. Unfortunately, neither Ashwin nor Ravindra Jadeja took wickets in that match.
Ashwin with 7 economy and Jadeja with 8.37 economy. The Indian batsmen could not withstand the pressure as they entered the ring with a target of 339 runs. The Indian team collapsed to 158 in just 30.3 overs. Pakistan scored 180 in the biggest match of the Big Tournament.
Following this, R Ashwin immediately withdrew from cricket. Ashwin is almost consistent in the Test team. Whatever historic victory India recorded at this time, it was Ashwin’s role. The hero who achieved amazing success in Australia. But he could not get a place in short cricket. Kuldeep and Chahal took the position. But now the pair have also been sidelined by the selectors. However, Ashwin regained his place in the team. He earned another place in Playing 11 with Jadeja. R Ashwin Cricket Circle is complete .. In R Ashwin’s language, ‘circle’ is never complete. That means there are a lot of stops in it, too.
