Ravichandran Ashwin shares ‘sunny’ news ahead of IND vs SA 1st Test

Ravichandran Ashwin shared some 'sunny' news amid the gloomy forecast for Day 1 of the IND vs SA 1st Test on Tuesday.

The Indian cricket team are gearing up for the two-match Test series against South Africa, starting on Tuesday in Centurion. However, heavy rain and thunderstorm are likely to play spoilsport on opening day of the Boxing Day Test.

Team India’s practice session was cancelled on Monday due to persistent rains. However, in what comes as a huge boost, Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin provided a good news on the eve of the first Test.

With the pitch likely to offer more assist to pacers, the Indian management is likely to go with 4 pacers and 1 spinner for the 1st Test. This means, Ravichandran Ashwin might have to sit out to make way for Shardul Thakur in Playing XI.
