Former Indian cricketer Saba Karim has stated that head coach Rahul Dravid will have to play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy team environment after R Ashwin's latest statement.

While reviewing the Test series between India and New Zealand, former Pakistan skipper Salman Butt has stated that he was often surprised by R Ashwin’s repeated exclusion from the Playing XI during Ravi Shastri – Virat Kohli era.

Butt made this comment when a fan asked him about Ashwin’s ouster during the last Test series in England.

“Well, what can we say? We kept saying he should have been played. I say this time and again, he is as good as anybody with the ball as a spinner. Probably even the best spinner at the moment. Why didn’t he play? Only coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli can answer that better,” opined Butt.
