While most of Team India’s players were celebrating holidays in UK, on the other hand the team’s senior spinner R Ashwin was sweating playing county cricket and seeing the havoc he wreaked by his bowling in the County Championship, only the England Test team sweated will be leaving.
Ashwin also had fun with his family in England but at the same time he does not want to leave any gap in his preparation for the upcoming series and in such a situation he played a match of County Championship for Surrey and what a wonderful showed the game.
Before the India England Test series, Ashwin’s bowling has become a lesson of concern for the British. In the second innings, Ashwin sent six Somerset batsmen to the pavilion for 27 runs in 15 overs. At the same time, in this match, Ashwin bowled a total of 51 overs and took a total of seven wickets for 127 runs. After this performance, Ashwin has a total of 61 wickets in 10 county matches.
Remember, England’s pitches are often helpful for fast bowlers and for a spinner in such conditions, such figures are very impressive. Many former veterans have been very happy with his performance. This includes the country’s former fast bowler investigator and former India bowler RP Singh. Bishop praised Ashwin in a tweet and said that the pace he has shown in playing for Surrey is really amazing. He also took six wickets and laid the foundation for a great fight against Jack. I am eagerly waiting for this.
Let us tell you that due to Ashwin’s sharp bowling, the entire Somerset team was all out for just 69 runs in the second innings. During England’s tour of India earlier this year, Ashwin wreaked havoc on the English batsmen with his spin. He took 32 wickets in the four-Test series. On the other hand, if we talk about Ashwin’s record on England soil, he has taken 18 wickets in seven Tests.
It has always been said about Ashwin that he is unable to perform on foreign soil, but in the last one year, if his performance is seen on foreign soil, he has been excellent. Ashwin is in excellent form and has maintained his momentum in county cricket and in such a situation, if his form continues in this five-match series, then it will be very beneficial for India. In such a situation, this spinner of India seems to be proving to be a danger bell for England.
