Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 hasn’t been anything special for R Ashwin. The year 2021 has been full of ups and downs for Ashwin. The second qualifier match of IPL 2021 was played on Wednesday, in which Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had to score seven runs to win in the last over. R Ashwin bowled last and took two wickets in two consecutive balls for just one run in the first four balls, but then Rahul Tripathi hit a six on the fifth ball and thus KKR reached the final. Sanjay Manjrekar has given his opinion about R Ashwin after this match. Manjrekar said that he will never keep a bowler like Ashwin in his T20 team.
Ashwin did not get a chance to play a single match during the Test series against England. After this, Ashwin has got a place in the 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup. On ESPNcricinfo, Manjrekar said, ‘We have discussed Ashwin for a long time. Ashwin is nothing special for any team as a T20 bowler. And if you want Ashwin to change, I don’t think there can be any change in him. He has been like this for the last five-seven years.
Manjrekar further said, ‘It was wrong not to give Ashwin a chance in a single Test match in England, but to spend time on Ashwin in T20, I do not understand. He has been bowling the same for the last five years and I will never include him in my T20 team. I will include bowlers like Varun Chakraborty, Sunil Narine or Yuzvendra Chahal in the team.
