IND vs WI 1st Test | ‘This’ door can open for Ravichandran Ashwin who wreaked havoc in WI vs IND 1st Test Match, can be a trump card for Team India

In the first match of the 2-match Test series played between India and West Indies at the Windsor Park ground in Dominica (WI vs IND 1st Test Match, Dominica, 2023), the Indian team won the match on the third day itself. In this match, Team India’s experienced bowler Ravichandran Ashwin broke into havoc. Significantly, Ravichandran Ashwin played a big role in India’s resounding victory by taking 5 wickets in the first innings of this match and 7 wickets in the second. History is testifying that Ashwin has given the best performance of his career in Test matches played so far abroad. ALSO READ Records show that Ravichandran Ashwin now needs only 14 wickets to complete 500 Test wickets in Test cricket. It is worth noting that this year, the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, hosted by India, is to be played on Indian soil in the month of October-November. This excellent performance against the West Indies could lead to Ashwin’s return to the ODI team. He has not been in the limited overs cricket team for a long time. He is given a chance for the Test team as an excellent spinner. But, many pitches in India can prove to be excellent for spin bowlers in the World Cup. From this point of view, it is believed that Ravichandran Ashwin can be included in Team India for the ODI World Cup. Now it is up to the selectors of the Indian team to decide whether a great off-spinner, that too very experienced, should be given a chance in the ODI team or not. The selectors will need to understand that Ravichandran Ashwin can prove to be a trump card in terms of taking wickets while keeping a check on the batsmen’s run rate. Ravichandran Ashwin’s record in ODI cricket is not bad if seen. He has taken 151 wickets in 113 matches played so far. His performance in IPL has also been good. -Vinay Kumar
