Ravichandran Ashwin has been a terrific player across all the formats, but has been limited to only the test squad in recent years. Early in his career, he got a break in the Indian team after taking consistent wickets for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. After foraying into the limited-overs team in 2010, he soon got an entry to the Indian test team in 2011. Since then, he has been a regular member of the test team in the home as well as overseas series.
Ashwin has scalped 413 Wickets in Tests and has been quite handy with 5 centuries to his name as well. But the spinner has not been able to find place in the Playing XI in the current test series against England.
The Cricket Twitter community has been quite vocal about the selection of the players for respective tournaments and series. They have been making quirky remarks and are often seen giving advices to the team management for selecting their teams. Today, the spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has again beet left out of the Playing 11, and the community and fans have gone berserk regarding the decision by the team management and captain Kohli.
