Indian off-spinner, R Ashwin is ecstatic about team India’s win over Australia in the Boxing Day Test match. So much so, that his wife, Prithi Ashwin went on to say that she has never seen him this happy. Team India won the second Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy on Tuesday. They beat the Australians by 8 wickets.
After what happened in Adelaide, this win came as a massive boost for the Indian Cricket Team. The Indian bowlers were right on the mark in both the innings. They did not let the Kangaroos cross the 200-run mark in both the innings which is quite a commendable effort on the Australian soil. R Ashwin, India’s prime spinner, picked 5 crucial wickets in the game to dismantle the Australian batting line up.

I have seen/ spoken to Ashwin after every Test he has played and after a lot of wins. But I have never seen him this happy, satisfied and light (can I say?) with a smile in his eyes in almost 10 years. https://t.co/8f0qUW489S

Ravichandran Ashwin And Steve Smith Involved In Interesting Battle In The Border-Gavaskar Trophy
R Ashwin has got the better of Steve Smith twice in three innings in this series. A lot of cricketers have gone on to say that Ashwin has been able to find and exploit Steve Smith’s weakness. Even SSmith went on to say after the first Test that Ashwin trapped him cleverly. Steve Smith has looked a normal batsman in the entire series so far.
Now, India and Australia will collide in the third Test from January 7 at Sydney. Star Indian opener, Rohit Sharma will join the side from the third Test. Australian opener David Warner will also join the side from the third Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
