3 Reasons Why Ravichandran Ashwin Has Always Been A Part Of Victimized Indian Players
1. Frequent Chop And Change; Selection Dilemma In T20Is
Ravichandran Ashwin was retained for the New Zealand home series after the conclusion of the 2021 T20 World Cup and was dropped later. And after a gap of eight months, he was brought back for the 5-match T20Is against hosts West Indies.
Ravichandran Ashwin’s selection has time and again been questioned by experts. Making a return to the field after several months, the off-spinner looked in control with the ball in the Caribbean. He picked up only three wickets in as many T20Is but went for only 6.67 an over. His scalps included those of the dangerous Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer.

With 72 scalps in 65 matches, Ravichandran Ashwin is India’s third-highest wicket-taker in T20 Internationals. Only Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal are ahead of him. The 36-year-old played the 2021 T20 World Cup, New Zealand, West Indies, and South Africa series, Asia Cup 2022, and T20 World Cup 2022.
It was only in the recent T20I World Cup 2021 that Ravichandran Ashwin made a return to India’s white-ball team, ending his 4-year-long exodus from limited-overs internationals, thanks to his consistent performance in the Indian Premier League. The Indian selectors opting to select him for fewer matches has affected his form and is a reason why he has been a part of victimized Indian players despite strong performances in T20Is.
