Ashwin Irked By One-Day Omission

Ashwin Irked By One-Day Omission

Ravi Ashwin feels he is a better one-day player than given credit for as he continues to be overlooked by India. The 32-year-old, who has played 111 one-day internationals and taken 150 wickets, has not been selected on the 50-over team since the West Indies tour of 2017.

He continues to shine in domestic white-ball cricket, taking seven wickets from six games in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, but is out of the picture for the India side.

The all-rounder is still a mainstay of the Test XI and feels he should be considered for the ODI outfit, with a record the selectors should take note of. “I don’t know, it is a perception. I am no slouch.

In the white-ball format, my records are not bad like what it is perceived to be,” he said when asked why he is not chosen. “It is out of perception that wrist spinners are required in modern one-day cricket that I am sitting out. “The last ODI I played, I got 3-28. I would always look back at my career and I would like to believe it’s not due to my efforts that I am sitting out, but it is due to the supply and demand that the team requires.”
