Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
The Indian cricket team management has faced a lot of backlash for not selecting off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the opening Test against the West Indies as he had come off a good run in the domestic season this year.
Former Indian batting great Sunil Gavaskar was baffled by the exclusion of the off spinner from the first Test as he felt that Ashwin should have played in Antigua solely because of his great record against the West Indies.
Former English cricketer Nick Compton has also been surprised by India’s selection call as he feels that there might be some personal differences between Kohli and Ashwin which are getting in the way of latter’s selection.
Eyebrows are being raised on the environment of the Indian dressing room as the news of rifts between the captain and several other players have been making rounds in the media for some time now.
