Instead of taking the name of R Ashwin, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said the veteran spinner’s bowing spell was behind the team’s defeat against South Africa.
Gavaskar explained why poor fielding was not behind India’s defeat. “Dropping catches and missing run-outs happen in cricket. Even big players can commit a mistake but a bowler giving away 43 runs was the main reason behind defeat,” Gavaskar told Aaj Tak.
Ashwin bowled four overs and conceded 43 runs in 4 overs. Ashwin dismissed Tristan Stubbs but ended up conceding 13 runs in the 18th over, which paved the way for South Africa’s win.
