R Ashwin’s Witty Post After Ind V NZ Mumbai Test Goes Viral


New Delhi: Team India’s star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Monday took to Twitter to post a witty picture after team India attained a historic 372-run win over defending ICC World Test Champions New Zealand at Mumbai’s iconic Wankhede stadium.

The veteran off-spinner aced it with his camera when he captured picture of Axar Patel, Ajaz Patel, Rachin Ravindra and Ravindra Jadeja, posing in such order so that the names of their respective jersey’s shirt were in sync to read “Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja”.

Three out of these four players were part of India vs New Zealand Mumbai Test. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was benched for the 2nd Test due to injury. Ajaz Patel had a memorable outing as he scripted history in Ind vs NZ 2nd Test by taking 10 wickets in the first innings. Axar Patel showcased amazing skills both with the bat and ball. Indian-origin Kiwi cricketer Rachin Ravindra, however, failed to create impact as he couldn’t do much in this match.

Talking about the Ind v NZ 2nd Test, India defeated Kiwis by 372 runs to win the two-match series 1-0. Mayank Agarwal was adjudged Man of the Match for his heroic innings and Ashwin was adjudged Man of the Series for his remarkable bowling. Mayank scored 150 and 62 runs in the 2nd match, while ‘king of spin’ Ashwin bagged 14 wickets in the series.

“To come back with a win again, it’s a great feeling and a clinical performance. You want individuals to step up. The first Test was good, and it was a clinical performance here,” India captain Virat Kohli told media at the post-match presentation.

“South Africa is a tough challenge and a win that we want to achieve as a team. Hopefully, we can play in South Africa the way we know we can play, and win the series,” the skipper said after India’s historic win.
