Former Australia captain Ricky Potting has said that the Australian team has had to bear the brunt of taking Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on the second day of the Adelaide Test.
Many people raised questions on Ravichandran Ashwin’s inclusion in the playing XI. But this off-spinner, showing his ability, put the Australian batsmen in trouble on the second day of the Adelaide Test match. He made Australia’s star batsman Steven Smith walk on a single. After that Ashwin broke the back of Australian batting by sending Travis Head and Cameron Green to the pavilion.
Ricky Pontig told Channel 7, “The Australian batsmen appeared to be trying to attack Ashwin strongly. I think he took Ashwin lightly. The batsmen tried to keep the scoreboard in motion and their stakes backfired. “
Ashwin had taken three wickets till the end. Former Australian veteran bowler Glenn McGrath was not impressed with his team’s batting. He told Sony Sports, “Today, the batsmen should be very defensive. He was waiting for a bad ball to play pressure on the bowlers. He should have put a little more pressure on the bowlers. Indian bowlers managed to bowl at the places they wanted and kept getting wickets. “
