IND vs ENG | Breaking Bhajju Pa’s wicket record at home is incredibly special, asserts Ravichandran Ashwin
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After breaking Harbhajan Singh's record of 265 home wickets, Ravichandran Ashwin has stated that people used to make fun of him that he used to bowl like him, and now breaking his record is incredibly special. Ashwin further asserted that picking a fifer in front of the Chennai crowd is special.India had a terrific day in the office, bunding England out for a lowly total of 134 runs to take a 195-run lead in the first innings. Ravichandran Ashwin was the wrecker in chief, picking another fifer to continue his love affair with Chepauk, where he has had a fifer in every Test he has played there barring one against England in 2016. In the process, he also got closer to 400 Test wickets and broke Harbhajan's record of 265 home Test wickets as well. On being asked about the same, Ashwin stated that he never thought of becoming an off-spinner in the first place and now reaching this position is incredibly special.“When I started watching Harbhajan Singh in the 2000s I was still wanting to be a batsman, never expected to be an off-spinner. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to play for the Indian team. A lot of my teammates used to make fun of me, I used to bowl like Bhajju pa. From thereon, to come and break his record, it is incredibly special and extremely sorry, Bhajju pa," Ashwin said in the post-match press conference.Ashwin was further delighted by the fact that crowds made their presence felt in the game and it allowed Ashwin to soak in the energy from the ground he grew up playing in.“It’s wonderful to have crowd back in the first place. The Indian cricketing fans are also waiting to come and watch live sports. On the other hand, it is always special for me to play in front of my home ground and picking up a fifer. I would always cherish and in front of the Chennai crowd, even more special.”With so much talk about the nature of the pitch and the right kind of approach to negate the impact of the spinners, Ashwin stated that it depends on individual to individual. Giving an example of Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Joe Root, Ashwin stated that one needs to find scoring areas for themselves.“Look whatever works for you, Rohit has been sweeping really well, he has used his feet as well. Puji has used his feet really well. On the other hand, someone like Root likes sweeping. In the end, you just go with whatever works for you. Even for the quicks, you have to take the percentage shots. I think it’s about identifying the right kind of intent. Sometimes when you play on this kind of pitches, you are set for the game. You have to find scoring areas for yourself.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Doesn’t make any sense to play two off-spinners in Chennai, remarks Harbhajan Singh
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After a late injury to Axar Patel, India opted to go with one left-arm spinner and two off-spinners, a decision which hasn’t gone down well with Harbhajan Singh. Irked by Kuldeep’s omission, Harbhajan has remarked that Kuldeep’s presence in the playing XI would have given a bit of variety.As it stands, India have opted to go with two off-spinners, in the form of Washington Sundar and Ravichandran Ashwin in the ongoing Chennai Test, omitting Kuldeep Yadav. While it is learnt that the decision was made after a last-minute injury to Axar Patel, it hasn’t left the former Indian players happy. Several players have flocked since the team was announced, to criticise the management of favouring the Chennai all-rounder over Kuldeep Yadav. Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh too has joined the list, remarking that it doesn’t make any sense to play two off-spinners at the Chepauk, while still having Kuldeep on the bench. He also added that it was understandable for him why the management insisted with Shahbaz Nadeem when Axar Patel was deemed injured. "It was astonishing for me to see Kuldeep Yadav not get a chance in Team India's playing XI despite him being in the squad. I can understand that since Axar Patel is injured, Shahbaz Nadeem came in as a like-for-like replacement. But it doesn't make sense to play two off-spinners in Chennai," Harbhajan told Sports Tak, reported HT.Since the Sydney Test, where Kuldeep picked up a fifer, the unorthodox left-arm spinner has been sidelined for the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja in the past. This year, the list has been extended to Washington Sundar and Shahbaz Nadeem, who have edged past the uncanny spinner. While India looked toothless on the first day, Harbhajan pointed out that Kuldeep could have made a difference. "Kuldeep Yadav's presence would have added a bit of variety to this Indian bowling attack. In the last two Tests that Kuldeep Yadav played, he had picked up five-wicket hauls. So I am completely baffled by his exclusion," Harbhajan asserted."This is also not a great sign for his confidence because it demoralizes you even further when you are a part of the squad but still can't make it to the playing XI."Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

A total of 11 players are believed to have set their base price at 2 crore for the forthcoming IPL auction, with Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Harbhajan Singh and Kedar Jadhav said to be 4 of the aforementioned 11. Mitchell Starc and Joe Root, however, have not enrolled their names in the auction.The Indian Premier League (IPL), earlier today, announced that a total of 1097 players had registered for the auction of the 2021 edition of the tournament to take place on February 18, with 283 of those 1097 being overseas players. West Indies with 56, it was revealed, had the most number of entrants, with Australia (42) and South Africa (38) coming second and third respectively. The full list of players who have registered themselves for the auction is yet to be made public, but ESPN Cricinfo have reported that a total of 11 players have set their base price at INR 2 crore - the maximum limit. These 11 players who have set their base price at INR 2 crore are believed to be Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Harbhajan Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Jason Roy and Moeen Ali, all of whom were released by their respective franchises a fortnight ago, and Shakib Al Hasan, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood, Colin Ingram and Sam Billings, none of whom had an IPL contract last season. Meanwhile, as reported by Cricbuzz, there are also other interesting entrants in the form of S Sreesanth, Arjun Tendulkar and Cheteshwar Pujara. Arjun, who represented Mumbai in the recently-concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, is believed to have set his base price as 20 lakh, while Pujara and Sreesanth are said to have opted for 50 lakh and 75 lakh respectively. Hanuma Vihari, who had a gig with Delhi Capitals two seasons ago, is also said to have thrown his name in the hat, setting a base price of INR 1 crore. While all these players, should they get shortlisted, will go under the hammer, there will be two big names who will not be available for purchase. Australia’s premier fast-bowler Mitchell Starc and England Test skipper Joe Root are said to have opted out of the auction. James Pattinson, according to ESPN Cricinfo, is also believed to have pulled out in order to take a break. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
