Ravichandran Ashwin always has a quest for learning new things & has stood out for team India in the first two test matches against Australia, captain Ajinkya Rahane said on Wednesday.
Ashwin is currently leading the pace attack by scalping 10 wickets. When asked about Ashwin’s quality, Rahane said, “He is always looking to learn new things. He has good skills but is always looking to learn new things, and that’s what makes Ashwin great.” The captain couldn’t be happier with the Tamil Nadu tweaker’s success. “I hope that he continues for next two Test matches and do the job for us,” said Rahane.
The Captain indicated that SCG wicket for the third test match looks to be a good one for batting. “See, as per history of Sydney, it is a very good wicket, very good wicket, so you just have to play some good cricket,” Rahane said.
The SCG wicket helps spinners & that’s why Rahane doesn’t want his team to take any chance while facing Nathan Lyon. “Yes, we have good spinners but Nathan Lyon is their quality spinner, who has done well here, so we don’t want to take anybody lightly,” he added.
While concluding, Rahane once again highlighted the fact. “As I said earlier, whatever happened in Melbourne it is history now,” Rahane said.
“Australia is a very good team, especially when playing in Australia. They are a dangerous team and we respect that. We just want to be in the moment and start well tomorrow”, Rahane concluded.
