Arun said, ‘It depends on the atmosphere and other things. There is no doubt that Ashwin is the best bowler. But unfortunately he has not played any match in this series till now. But if a chance arises and it is not a matter of fitness, then both of them will play.
Ashwin will be seen at the Oval!
Usually the pitch of the Oval is helpful for the spin bowlers. Arun said, ‘The Oval has a history that spinners get help here but at the same time you should know that the English bowlers have an idea of Ashwin’s ability. I think the situation will be known after tracking tomorrow morning because a lot can happen from today till tomorrow’.
