Ashwin will make a comeback

R Ashwin, the champion spinner, has not been selected in the ODI series, prompting many to call it wrong and disgusting, highlighting Ashwin’s contribution to Indian cricket. Former Indian cricketer R Ashwin has not happy with Ashwin’s axing, finding it bizarre and out of context. He has backed Indian spinner to come good no matter what happens in future.

According to him, Ashwin is a leader, who knows his time will come in the shorter formats.

“Ashwin, the way he has had success in Tests, the success has not been the same in one-dayers. But having said that, over the last two years he has not been a regular member of the ODI side. That is why it is very tough to judge a player’s performance, if he is not given a long rope. But I still feel Ashwin is a very valuable player in all the three formats. He is someone who is a leader, and I always respect players who not only do well, but are also leaders within the group, and that is what Ashwin is. I believe he will be waiting for his chance, whenever he gets it, to prove a point,” Laxman told Hindustan Times.
