The fourth and last match of the Test series between India and England is being played at the newly constructed Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Ravichandran Ashwin and Akshar Patel dominated once again on the first day. Both played a key role in England’s first innings total of 205 runs with 7 wickets in hand. In the previous Test also, the pair forced the British to lose in two days.
Just before the match, the former England cricketer, while sharing an article, wrote – How to avoid Akshar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin? At this, Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer trolled him vigorously. Jaffer wrote – It would be better to remain on non-striking end. Yes, if you talk about Ashwin then non-striking and also will not be a safe place.
It is noteworthy that Ashwin had bowled out of England but Josh Butler. Actually, in 2019, Butler was batting on behalf of Rajasthan Royals. When Ashwin was bowling, Butler came out of the crease at non-striking end before throwing the ball. The then captain of Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) scattered the gills without losing a chance. There was a lot of uproar on this. This is what Jafar pointed out.
