Srikkanth questions the inclusion of Ashwin in the shortest format, tap to know why

In three games played during the ongoing India Vs West Indies match, Ashwin managed to take three wickets at a 6.66 economy rate in 12 overs. The series is important for the team to decide their squad for the World Cup scheduled later this year. The team and co have been experimenting on lot of stuff to get clarity on the roles to be assigned for the ICC mega event. However, Srikkanth believes that Ashwin should not be playing in the T20 World Cup and he thinks the decision is bizarre.

“It is a significant question. I have no idea what Ashwin is talking about. Why did he not get dropped, why was he there, why did not he play the T20 in England, and then why is he now playing in the T20s for the West Indies? For every one of us, it is unclear. because Jadeja is your first spinner.” Srikkanth said.

“Chahal, Axar Patel, Ashwin, or a backup spinner will come in second. Just two of these four will be leaving. Ideally, Ashwin may be because of his all-around skills—I do not know. But Chahal is the wrist spinner, so he would be my first choice,” he said.

He also believes Ravichandran Ashwin’s selection has been puzzling and that he will not make the final 15 for India’s T20 World Cup squad.
