After picking up 6 wickets on the first day of the first test match against Sri Lanka, Ashwin made it very clear that Harbhajan is a legend and don’t compare him with Bhajji.
Don’t Compare With Bhajji, He Is A Legend: Ashwin
While Harbhajan was India’s No. 1 spinner in the first decade of the 2000s, it’s now Ashwin who has assumed control over the mantle. The Chennai offie is conscious of his senior accomplice; however he wouldn’t like to go into the points of interest of how the two would go about their job.
“How would you plan to bowl withHarbhajan?” Ashwin was asked, and the he shot back: “I can get ready for my battle and not for my accomplice. He is an accomplished bowler and realizes what he is doing.”
Ashwin demands that despite the fact that they are off-spinners, their qualities are very diverse. “He has his qualitiesand we are altogether different bowlers. I will attempt to carry out my job and that is the thing that I can offer to the team.
This is Ashwin’s first Test visit to Sri Lanka and he is happy to get out Kumar Sangakkara, who will retire after this series. “He is a legend. Sanga puts a high cost on his wicket and it’s as straightforward as that.
When you get Sanga out once, he guarantees he doesn’t give you his wicket again. He added that, ‘you can’t run with assumptions on how the wickets will be. Everyone says spinners will have huge influence, however we don’t generally know. I would say that I am enormously happ on picking up the wickets.”
“It will love to sit down and talk with Muralitharan on the off chance that I find the opportunity,” Ashwin concluded in his interview. But however, Ashwin looked completely confident and happy after his performance on the first day.
