Aakash Chopra has highlighted David Warner’s struggles against Ravichandran Ashwin in Test cricket. Warner was dismissed by Ashwin in the second innings as Australia were bowled out for 91 runs.
Rohit Sharma and Co. won the Nagpur Test by an innings and 132 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.
“I expected a fight from the Aussies after India scored 400 runs in the first innings. Usman Khawaja is not that experienced, but Warner has played a lot of cricket. He has a problem against R Ashwin. He comes to bowl, and Warner goes out,” he said.
“Warner hasn’t been able to solve R Ashwin’s mystery. He was dropped by Virat Kohli, but the Indians were not worried as they knew he would get out,” he added.
Warner fell victim to Ashwin for the 11th time in Test cricket. The Australian opener averages 17.50 against the Indian off-spinner.
