Ashwin to ‘come back and bowl straightaway’ in Rajkot Test

Cricket fans around the world will be eagerly watching to see how Ashwin fares upon his return.

India vs England 3rd Test: Indian cricket fans can rejoice! Ravichandran Ashwin, who left the 3rd Test vs England due to a family emergency in Rajkot, has received clearance from the umpires to return and bowl immediately. This news, shared by Dinesh Karthik during his commentary stint, comes as a major boost for India’s bowling attack, which currently faces a formidable English batting line-up.

Ravichandran Ashwin absence

Ravichandran Ashwin sudden departure after Day 2 left India with only 10 active players on the field, a significant disadvantage considering England’s strong batting position. His absence was particularly concerning due to his experience and effectiveness as a spinner, especially on pitches offering assistance to slow bowlers.

Good news arrives:

However, Karthik’s update brings renewed hope for the Indian team. With Ashwin’s return to bowling duties, India regains a crucial weapon in their bowling arsenal. His presence could potentially shift the momentum of the match, especially if he can replicate his magical spell from Day 2 where he claimed his 500th Test wicket.

Impact on the Game:

The re-inclusion of Ashwin adds another layer of intrigue to the ongoing Test. England, currently in a comfortable position with a strong batting performance, will face a renewed challenge with Ashwin back in the attack. His variations and experience could prove decisive in restricting England’s scoring rate and creating opportunities for dismissals.

All Eyes on Ashwin:

Cricket fans around the world will be eagerly watching to see how Ashwin fares upon his return. His bowling performance could be a game-changer for India, potentially helping them claw their way back into contention or consolidate their position if they manage to restrict England’s lead further.
