Ravichandran Ashwin, the world’s number one Test bowler, has broken his silence on his omission from the Indian team for the WTC Final. In an interview with The Indian Express, Ashwin said that he was “disappointed” not to be selected for the match, but that he respected the decision of the team management.
Ashwin said that he had been “bowling well overseas” in recent years, and that he felt he had a good chance of making a difference in the final. However, he said that he understood the team management’s decision to go with a four-pronged pace attack, and that he was “looking forward to helping the team in any way he can” in the future.
Ashwin’s omission from the WTC Final was a surprise to many, as he is one of the most experienced and successful bowlers in the world. However, the team management decided to go with a pace-heavy attack, with Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, and Umesh Yadav all making the cut.
Ashwin’s comments suggest that he is still determined to play a role in India’s quest to win the WTC. He is currently the leading wicket-taker in Test cricket since 2018, and he has a proven track record of taking wickets in overseas conditions.
It remains to be seen whether Ashwin will be able to force his way back into the Indian team for the upcoming Test series against England. However, his comments suggest that he is still hungry to win and that he is determined to make a difference for India.
