Ashwin took 5 wickets in the first innings of the second Test against England. After this also thanked the audience.
India won the second Test by defeating England by 317 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin, who played a key role in the victory, made a statement in Tamil after the match. He said that whenever I bowled during the match, the audience motivated and made me feel like a hero. Ashwin dedicated this win to the Chennai audience.
Watching Test cricket in Chepak for 8-9 years
Ashwin said, ‘I have seen cricket from these stands in Chepak since I was 8 or 9 years old. My father used to bring me here to show me the test. It was a dream for me to get a chance to play on this ground. I have played 4 Test matches so far here and this is the most special among them. With no cricket at the time of Kovid-19, it was known that a large number of spectators would come to watch this test.
Will try to win the test in Ahmedabad too
Ashwin said that we were 0-1 behind in the series without an audience, but after the audience came, we came at 1-1. There will also be an audience in Ahmedabad and hopefully it will be able to sustain this performance even further. Ashwin took a total of 8 wickets including 5 wickets in the first innings and 3 wickets in the second innings. Apart from this, he also scored a fifth century of Test career in the first innings.
