After the conclusion of the fourth Test’s third day between India and England, experienced Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin disclosed that he has been experiencing knee problems. This poses a significant concern for India as Ashwin has been a crucial player for the team in Test cricket. On Sunday, he achieved a milestone by becoming the Indian bowler with the highest number of Test wickets on home turf, surpassing the legendary Anil Kumble.

During the Ranchi Test on Sunday, Ashwin mentioned that his knee has been troubling him for some inexplicable reason, requiring about 10-12 balls to warm up properly. He emphasized the importance of finding his length before attempting the carrom ball to avoid conceding unnecessary runs, especially since they were in a chasing situation. Ashwin praised the entire bowling unit for their exceptional character.

Ashwin applauded Kuldeep’s performance, particularly his focus on improving his run-up and momentum. He acknowledged Kuldeep’s skill in imparting revolutions on the ball and varying the pace and trajectory effectively. Despite claiming a fifer himself, Ashwin humorously acknowledged “stealing” it from Kuldeep, recognizing the nature of the game.
