Losing his One-day International spot to young spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin has resigned himself to the fate by saying his comeback will solely depend on how others perceive his game of cricket.

Meanwhile, off-spinner Ashwin along with Ravindra Jadeja lost their places since the 2017 Champions Trophy loss, last year. Since then, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have made the spot their own.

The reporters always greeted Ashwin questioning him about his chances in the 2019 World Cup squad and this time was no different.

The Tamil Nadu-born cricketer, too, gave a pointed reply as always.

It entirely depends on what other people (team management and selectors) perceive of my cricket. It’s definitely not in my control. Like any other cricketer, I want to wear the blue jersey and represent India at the World Cup. That’s obviously there deep within,” PTI quoted Ashwin as saying.

Furthermore, with Kuldeep and Chahal doing good, Ashwin has made peace with himself that his chances of ODI comeback are less likely.

At this stage of my career, physically and mentally, I am just focusing on enjoying my cricket. If I land an opportunity, I want to be in good frame of mind to grab it with both hands,” he added.

Death overs key for India’ssuccess:

Talking about the upcoming limited-overs series against England, Ashwin noted pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s and Jasprit Bumrah’s death overs will be key to success for the visiting team.

England is a strong team in the shorter formats. They tweaked their strategy and team combination after the 2015 World Cup. The key for India in ODIs will be Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah’s death overs. Hopefully, it will be a high scoring series,” he noted.

In conclusion, Ravichandran Ashwin also hoped for a good contest during the Test series starting on August 1.
