Former Indian cricketer Karsan Ghavri expressed his dissatisfaction over the exclusion of veteran spinner Ravichandra Ashwin from India’s squad for the upcoming Asia Cup. Karsan Ghavri emphasized that Ravichandran Ashwin has not received fair treatment despite being a senior player.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently announced the 17-member squad for the Asia Cup 2023. Ravichandran Ashwin couldn’t make it into the squad as the selectors picked Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, and Kuldeep Yadav. Yuzvendra Chahal was also dropped from the squad.
Ravichandran Ashwin Has Not Been Treated Well – Karsan Ghavri
Speaking on the sidelines of the Ceat Cricket Rating Award in Mumbai on Monday, August 21, Karsan Ghavri said that Ravichandran Ashwin could be a better option, considering the ODI World Cup being played on home soil.
“What is Ashwin supposed to prove after taking 712 international wickets? He has not been treated well despite being a senior player. Ashwin is a quality player and he should have been selected for the Asia Cup. He will be a key bowler in the ODI World Cup on Indian pitches,” Ghavri said.
