Ashwin Has Suffered From Sore Back, Revealed His Wife


In what is now labelled as one of the best Test matches ever played, India duked out Australia at Sydney with a rising list of injuries and with two scathed cricketers in the likes of Ashwin and Vihari at the centre to eke out an impossible draw.

While batting with Pujara, Hanuma Vihari pulled his hamstring and started imposing further pain on himself as every single ball passed.

Ashwin took a nasty blow in his ribs early in the innings when the Australian fast bowlers peppered him with a volley of bouncers. Unknown to others, the offie had an excruciating back-ache last night as well.

After the Test came to an end, his wife, Prithi Ashwin divulged the fact in a Tweet. Ecstatic after a heroic touchdown at Sydney by his husband, Prithi was all praises about his better half.

The tweet read, “The man went to bed last night with a terrible back tweak and in unbelievable pain. He could not stand up straight when he woke up this morning. Could not bend down to tie his shoe laces. I am amazed at what @ashwinravi99 pulled off today.”

She posted an intriguing sequence of tweets as the game started taking a thousand twist and turns with an action-packed day that went right down the wire.

Vihari suffered tormenting physical pain as he could barely move with his hamstring popped. He managed to hung in there and showcased exemplary grit to snatch out an impossible draw from the sheer jaws of defeat.

In fact, in the 21st century, India went on to chronicle their highest number of overs played in the fourth innings to script a remarkable comeback as a defeat stared right in their eyes. The essay of watershed was started by Pant when he started smacking the Australian bowlers sans any mercy.
