IND vs AUS WTC Final: Why is Ravichandran Ashwin Not Playing Today’s India vs Australia Test match?

After winning the toss and opting to bowl first on a green Oval pitch, India captain Rohit Sharma revealed the big news that Ravichandran Ashwin misses out for this IND vs AUS WTC Final 2023. Rohit further mentioned that it was very difficult to leave out No. 1 bowler in the current ICC Test Rankings but they are going ahead with Ravindra Jadeja as the lone spinner. Interestingly, Ashwin ended up taking a remarkable five-wicket haul on a flat Ahmedabad pitch against Australia earlier this year and he has also been India’s highest wicket-taker in this WTC 2021-23 cycle having picked up as many as 61 wickets from 13 Tests. Interestingly, Ravi Ashwin did not played a single Test match during the last 5-match Test series against England in 2021-22.

“We are going to bowl. The conditions and also the weather being overcast. The pitch won’t change too much. Four seamers and one spinner. The spinner is Jadeja. It’s always tough (to leave Ashwin), he’s been a match-winner. He (Rahane) brings a lot of experience, he’s played 80-odd Tests,” said India captain Rohit Sharma during the toss.
