‘What kind of treatment was given to Ashwin…’, Gavaskar forced 140 crore Indians to think

The Indian team reached the final of the World Test Championship 2023 for the second time in a row, but failed to win the title. Australia defeated India by 209 runs. India did not include veteran spinner R Ashwin in the playing eleven for this match. So India was criticized from many legends to fans. Now veteran batsman Sunil Gavaskar has also been included in this. Gavaskar has forced 140 crore Indians to think with his statement. He said that no other top cricketer of India has been treated like spinner Ashwin.

R Ashwin, the world’s top Test bowler, was not included in the playing eleven in the World Test Championship. Many, including Sunil Gavaskar, cited Ashwin’s absence from the team as the reason behind India’s defeat at the K Oval in London. The decision to leave Ashwin out of the final was called wrong by many Indian and Australian cricketers.

What did Gavaskar say?
Sunil Gavaskar wrote in a prominent newspaper column, “No other top-class Indian cricketer in the modern era has been treated like Ashwin. India did not give a place to one of the top bowlers in the world in Test cricket in the playing eleven. Also, there were five left-handed batsmen in the Australian team and it was they who led Australia to victory. Travis Head’s century in the first innings and Alex Hales and Mitchell Starc’s knock in the second innings. As everyone knows, Ashwin dismisses left-handed batsmen early.”

He further wrote, “Had Ashwin been in the team, who knows what would have happened. He could also contribute with the bat. You tell me, what if the top ranked batsman in the ICC rankings was in the Indian team and was dropped only because he didn’t score on a green pitch or a pitch beneficial to the spinners? I say with confidence, it does not happen.”

Ashwin’s career
If we look at Ashwin’s career, he has taken 474 wickets at an average of 23.93 in 92 Test matches. During this time he has taken 5 or more wickets in an innings 32 times. Ignoring this statistic kept him out of the WTC finals. Earlier, he was not given a chance in the playing eleven even during the Test series in England. (wtc final 2023 no one has been treated like r ashwin sunil gavaskar made big statement)
