Karthik supports Ashwin…Get the details…

Wednesday, 9th June 2021


Team India’s wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik talked in support of teammate Ravichandran Ashwin in the midst of SENA countries banter and mentioned the latter’s stellar performance in the Australian Test series.

Recently, former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar told in his statement about Ashwin that he does not consider him to be an “all-time great” in the field because of his record in SENA countries- South Africa, England, New Zealand, and Australia.

Manjrekar cited Ashwin’s performance and added that the bowler has picked up 63 wickets in 20 matches at an average of above 40 in these countries. He also cannot boast a single-five wicket haul.

In reaction to all the chatter around SENA and Ashwin, Dinesh Karthik said that it is a "bit unfair" on the senior off-spinner.

Karthik stated that the current fourth-highest wicket-taker in Tests for India, Ashwin was one of the best bowlers during India's historic 2-1 Test series victory against Australia Down Under, where he picked up 12 wickets in three games.

He said, “When it comes to Ashwin, a lot of things have been said about his performances in SENA continues. I think it's a tad bit unfair. Even if you see the way he has bowled in Australia, the pressure he has been able to create and his ability to get good batsmen out.”

Karthik went on to explain that Ashwin has displayed some brilliant performances in overseas condition where he has kept the opposite sides’ run rates in check along with several occasions where he has exhibited exemplary performances, winning the Man of the Series Awards for India more times than anybody else in India in such a short span of time.

Karthik also said, “As an opposition, you look at Ashwin and always think he is a guy whom we need to play carefully. He is not a random bloke who just turns up, he will have a plan, he knows what he is doing and gives you a lot with the bat at No. 8. He is probably one of the better No. 8s going around.”

Calling him a “fighter”, “a very skilled cricketer” and a “student of the game”, the wicketkeeper said Ashwin is someone who is always looking to up his game.
