New Delhi: After winning the second Test against England by 151 runs, everyone is expecting a great performance from Team India in the third Test. However, the hearts of the fans must have been broken by the poor start of the Indian team. In the third Test, after winning the toss, Virat Sena came out to bat, losing 3 wickets in the first one hour and the series did not stop here. Team India got out after scoring just 78 runs.
On the second day of the match, the England batsmen forced the Indian bowlers to kneel. None of the bowlers could do anything special. After this Virat Kohli has started questioning a decision.
Virat’s insistence cost India dearly
Actually Ravichandran Ashwin was not included in Team India’s playing XI in the first and second Test. In such a situation, it was expected that this time Kohli would make no mistake and give senior player Ashwin a place in the team. But this did not happen. The second Indian bowlers of the third match were in trouble and the England batsmen kept playing shot on shot. All the bowlers looked helpless. In such a situation, Ashwin’s experience in this match could have been very useful for the team.
Big mistake to include Ashwin
Why did the bowlers of Team India look so helpless in front of them. In such a situation, the question arises that Ashwin is a senior player of India as well as Ashwin is the best spin bowler of the present time. Ashwin has 413 wickets in Test cricket. Ashwin had a big hand in getting two consecutive series wins against Australia. Ashwin could have been very important in this match against England. He is very experienced, in such a situation his being in the team would have proved beneficial for India and do not know that the England team could not score this much.
When you’re the World No.2 Test Bowler & No.4 All Rounder.

Once Sunil Gavaskar said “Ashwin is the only one who opposing bad strategies from captain and coach that’s why he is in second preference while playing tests in overseas” Ashwin has excellent brain and big heart he has the habit of getting main wicket of opposition very quickly .
