Ravichandran Ashwin impressed one and all yet again with his brilliant performance in the first Test of the ongoing series against New Zealand.
All eyes were on Ravichandran Ashwin as India took the field on a spinner friendly pitch at Green Park in Kanpur, in the opening Test of the long home season. It was Jadeja who led the attack in the first innings by taking his 5th five-for in Test cricket, but Ashwin overshadowed Jadeja with an outstanding performance in the second innings in which he took 6 wickets.
Ravichandran Ashwin took 10 wickets and also scored a 40-run cameo in the Indian first innings.
‘priceless’ cricketer in Test cricket.
“There’s no doubt that he has been bowling wonderfully well for the last couple of years. He works very hard on his game. He is a very keen thinker of the game. He understands the game very well.
“Very smart cricketer, very intelligent. That shows in his batting as well. He understands the situation and plays accordingly. He knows when to get runs and when to play the situation out accordingly. So it’s priceless to have a cricketer like Ashwin in your Test team,” Kohli added.
