Sydney: Former Australian veteran spinner Brad Hogg believes that star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) should be in India’s ODI squad, as he is a match-winner. Brad Hogg said that senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) specializes in getting wickets and he also reinforces lower-order batting.
Responding to a fan’s tweet on social media, former Australian veteran spinner Brad Hogg said it would be a good decision to include Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) in the Indian team for the 50-over format.
Brad Hogg was asked if Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) could make a comeback in the ODI, he said, ‘I believe it will be a great option. This will give more strength to the batting in the lower order, so that the top-order batsmen can play more openly.
Brad Hogg said, ‘He is a wicket-taking bowler and very economical as well. Add him back to the team.
Apart from 77 Test matches, Ashwin has played 111 ODIs and 46 T20 Internationals. He is not part of India’s limited overs team for the last few years. He played his last ODI in June 2017.
