R Ashwin rejoins team for 3rd Test against England

As per the latest update, the spinner has reached Rajkot

In a significant development for Team India, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed the return of Ravichandran Ashwin to the squad for the ongoing third Test against England. Ashwin, who had to leave the Rajkot Test due to a family emergency, is set to rejoin the team around lunchtime on Day 4.

The champion spinner’s decision to prioritize his family amidst challenging circumstances garnered immense respect, as he flew back to Chennai to attend to his mother less than 48 hours ago. However, Ashwin’s swift return to the Indian team reflects his commitment to the cause and his readiness to contribute to the team’s success.


A statement from the BCCI expressed, “Both R Ashwin and the team management are pleased to confirm that he will be back in action on Day 4 and will continue to contribute towards the team cause in the ongoing Test match.”

India, bolstered by Ashwin’s return, will be looking to capitalize on their advantage in the Test as they strive to gain a series lead against England.
