Meanwhile, ahead of the much-awaited tournament, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli explained the reason behind Ravi Ashwin’s inclusion in the Playing XI of the Indian squad. He said:
“One thing that Ashwin has really improved on is bowling with a lot of courage in white-ball cricket. We saw in the IPL in the last couple of years, he has bowled those difficult overs, he bowled against top players, power-hitters, and not being shy to put the ball in the right areas. Spinners mostly get intimidated against power-hitters, but Ashwin believed in his skill-sets,”
“We felt that the way he is bowling, his variations and his control over pace is… again, a lot of experience, a guy who has played a lot of international cricket and now he is at his confident best. These guys can go in there and change the game with their spells. Hence, I think Ashwin has been rewarded for reviving his white-ball skills altogether,”
