Ravichandran Ashwin’s exclusion from the first three Tests has raised quite a few eyebrows. The logic behind keeping him benched in a situation where he was required to bowl for his team has been repeatedly questioned. Indian skipper Virat Kohli said Ravindra Jadeja will be more overs in this Test while speaking about the importance of the fourth seamer in the English conditions. Jadeja kept the faith of his skipper taking two wickets in his spell on day 2.

Meanwhile, in a bid to get back into the team, Ravichandran Ashwin apart from honing his bowling skills was also seen batting left-handed like Ravindra Jadeja. “The desire to ignite something different every day never burns out” wrote Ashwin as he posted pictures of him batting left-handed like Jadeja.

Ashwin ended up the highest wicket-taker in the first ICC World Test Championship. He took 71 wickets and played a key role behind India winning Test matches both home and away.

Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan responded to Ashwin’s tweet saying that he looked classy while batting left-handed.

Virat Kohli Justifies Ravichandran Ashwin’s Exclusion From 3rd Test

When questioned regarding Ashwin’s exclusion from the playing XI, Kohli said ” We thought about getting Ashwin in, and the pressure of the extra seamer in these conditions is crucial. Jadeja will bowl a lot more overs because the conditions are suited to him. You can lay down markers and a culture, but it’s upto the boys to take it up and win from pressure situations. It’s all about handling pressure at the highest level.”

Meanwhile, India are well and truly on the back foot in the third Test. With three days of play still left, England have already posted over 400 runs in the first innings and taken a lead of 345 runs on day 2.
