On Wednesday, the health status of Ravichandran Ashwin caused confusion to the Indian Cricket team.
The Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli said the senior player that “he has not recovered on time”.
He also said that during the cricket match between India and Australia, Ravindra Jadeja was first named for the second Test at Perth.
Later, the cricket coach Ravi Shastri said in the Melbourne match that Jadeja was suffering from shoulder stiffness and wasn’t 100 per cent fit at the start of the Perth Test.
The BCCI went on controversial remarks that gave a detailed update on Jadeja’s injury that he will recover his illness quickly. The BCCI also said that the same injury happened with Wriddhiman Saha and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the cricket match which earlier held in England. Ashwin was suffering from a left-side abdominal strain, which also forced him to sit out of the final Test against England. Before the Perth test in Australia, Ashwin bowled 86 overs in Adelaide.
The captain Kohli was asked about Ashwin’s fitness status in a cricket match and he left with a little doubt that the Tamil Nadu player was to miss this match.
The Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli said that “He was very disappointed with the fact that Ashwin has not been able to recover on time, but the things have been laid out to him (as to) what needs to be done to get back to full fitness,”
The BCCI issued an official statement which states that ” A quick update on R Ashwin: The team management has named him in the 13-man squad for the final Test. A final decision on R Ashwin’s availability will be taken in the morning. We will put out the squad in some time.”
On the eve of the cricket match, The Indian team management has started naming a squad which is normally a 12-member squad.
