Former England cricketer Nick Compton has taken a step back from Virat Kohli and management for failing to include Ravichandran Ashwin in the XI of Kennington Oval, London Test against England.
Ravichandran Ashwin, who is currently undoubtedly one of the biggest spinners in the world, has missed four rugby matches against England. The main reason for this is the new template from Virat Kohli and management. According to the new template from the Indian team, they select four pacers and a single spinner in the team.
Meanwhile, India has a variety of Pacers and two big names in the spin division are Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Many consider Ravichandran Ashwin to be a better bowler, but Ravindra Jadeja got a chance to play XI in all four Test matches. Many cricket experts believe that this decision was made by the management taking into account the batting skills of Ravindra Jadeja. Although Jadeja performed well, he could not impress with his bowling ability.

With the persistent failure of Ravindra Jadeja with the ball and the field at Kennington Oval, London in the 4th game helping spinners, many fans went to Twitter to rob the Indian management because they did not include Ravichandran Ashwin in the game. Spinners in particular received a lot of help, which led to Moeen Ali getting 2 scalps and captain Joe Root getting one.
With an enthusiasm from Virat Kohli, former English cricketer Nick Compton, he said on Twitter that the fourth Test match would be drawn. If Ashwin XI plays, however, things could have been different. He wrote:
Can’t it be seen as a draw? India’s bowling, apart from Bumrah, will struggle. If only Ashwin had played … oh Kohli, it’s good to have independent thinkers in your team ”
Can’t see it other than a draw! India’s bowling, apart from Bumrah, will struggle. If Ashwin is just playing … oh Kohli, it’s good to have independent thinkers on your team
