India’s veteran spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin has been recalled to India’s T20 team for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Ashwin’s inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup side left everyone by surprise as perhaps nobody saw that coming.

The chief selector, Chetan Sharma reasoned that Ashwin’s consistent performances in IPL and Washington Sundar’s injury helped him return to wearing the blue jersey after four years.

“He has been performing well in the IPL. And an off-spinner will always be handy in UAE in a world tournament. Since Washington (Sundar) was unavailable, we decided to go with Ashwin,” Sharma said.

However, despite that, Ashwin is unlikely to feature in the playing XI as India already have a lot of talented spin-options in the squad, namely Varun Chakravarthy, Rahul Chahar and Ravindra Jadeja.
