Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin said that having a new bowling player in the park benefited India in the fourth and final Test against Australia in Gabba, Brisbane.
On Tuesday, the Australian stronghold – The Gabba – was finally broken into. It took 32 years and two months, but the unimaginable was accomplished when India’s youth team injured by injury beat Australia by three goals against all odds in the last Test to take a draw 2-1.
In the fourth and final Test, India was without R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, and Umesh Yadav. The bowling attack consisting of T Natarajan, Mohammed Siraj, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, and Shardul Thakur played the fourth Trial for the visitors.
“I think Gabba must really be their stronghold or something given their hypnotic way. It was 1000 wickets experience versus our 13 wickets experience. Come to think of it, it was in our favor, I think. New bowlers in the park. 20 players used to win series overseas, “Ashwin told agile coach R Sridhar on his YouTube channel.
Prior to the fourth test, the Australian media had already started reporting that the Indian team didn’t want to go to Gabba to have a look at the field. During the third Test, Australian captain Tim Paine also boarded the Ashwin train, saying the hosts couldn’t wait for the Indians to reach Gabba.
“The Indian team must not leave the bubble. But 15,000 people will be allowed into the stadium to watch the game. More precisely, we are caged by animals in the zoo. The audience will attack us. Then they accuse us of not coming to the Gabba fort. Paine’s team. missed Pant’s defeat in the second inning of the Gabba Test. But I’m starting to like him, he invited us, played the perfect host by missing a surprise opportunity, and awarded the draw too. Can ‘”I’m not saying he helped us win 2-1 but yeah. , in a sarcastic tone, he did it, “said Ashwin.
Fielding coach R Sridhar also echoed Ashwin’s sentiments, saying that having a new bowler in the park was profitable for India. He also said that this series teaches the importance of workload management.
“It doesn’t matter even if you are the best in the world, because if you have tired legs, then obviously you can’t carry out your plans as well as you’d like. So, learning is good for workload management for all of us, “said Sridhar.
“It’s a combination of everything, multifunctional. The Sydney Test gives us confidence, we fought for 131 overs, we were completely exhausted by their bowlers. But the first batting gave them the advantage with one extra day off for their bowler. But still, we were. “Mind over matter, ‘as they say. Boys have faith that they can do it. I think the whole of India is sending us their good vibes,” he added.
