Ashwin may not play in Test Championship final against Australia! Only Jadeja as a spinner

London: The Australian cricket team depends on the performance of India’s XI in the final of the ICC World Test Championship. The duo will face each other at the Oval on June 7. For this, India and Australia also faced each other in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Ashwin took 25 wickets and Jadeja took 22 wickets in the series held in India.

But Australia’s assistant coach, Daniel Vettori, has discovered that the situation will change when they reach England and that India will only play one spinner. He says… “There are many discussions about playing eleven of the Indian team. I think only Jadeja will play as a spinner in English conditions. Because he can shine in batting too.

He also plays well at number six. Now the thought is about the fourth seamer. Shardul Thakur will bowl. It can also be used in patios. For this reason, Ashwin may be left out despite his excellent record in England. There is no doubt that Ashwin is a brilliant bowler. First choice for any team. But team combination is important,” said Vettori. Ashwin has played seven Test matches in England and has taken 18 wickets at an average of 28.11.
