R Ashwin is already giving sleepless nights to Australia. He is the most talked about player in the Aussie camp and his different variations have got better of the best Australian batters. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne have struggled against the legendary cricketer.
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri feels R Ashwin’s form will decide the outcome of the four-match Test series in India. Pat Cummins’ team is in India to compete in five-day games.
“Ravi Ashwin’s form might decide the outcome of the Border Gavaskar Trophy,” he said on Star Sports.
Australia are under pressure, having lost two back-to-back Test series against India in their backyard. The sub-continent team has dominated the rivals in the longest format of the game.
However, India will be without Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Jasprit Bumrah due to injuries.
