Pujara praised Indian spinner Ashwin, said- he does not hesitate to try new things


New Delhi: Cheteshwar Pujara, who has played with Ravichandran Ashwin in the Indian team for a long time, says that this senior off-spinner is always ready to try new things and always keeps himself one step ahead of the rival batsmen.

Ashwin recently achieved the feat of taking 500 wickets in the traditional format and became the second Indian after Anil Kumble to do so. Ashwin will play his 100th Test in the fifth match against England starting from March 7 in Dharamshala.

Pujara wrote in his column for ‘ESPN Cricinfo’, “Reading the batsmen has always been an important part for Ashwin. He is always one step ahead, he is alert even on the smallest things. He always keeps watching the batsman’s movements, no detail is small for his sharp mind. He puts a lot of effort into every ball. ,

He wrote, “After achieving the milestone of 500 Test wickets, he is now close to another important milestone – playing his 100th Test. However, he reached here late due to various reasons. But I am very happy for him. He is always ready to take up the challenge and he deserves this achievement. ,

Pujara wrote, “Despite playing in many formats, he persisted for a long time and kept improving himself, which was due to his thinking of doing something new. He is not hesitant or afraid to try new things, even if he fails in the process. ,

Pujara, who played his 100th Test last year, said that batsmen do not get respite while facing Ashwin because this bowler is always trying to take wickets.

Pujara said, “He does not allow the batsmen to take respite. If you get comfortable with him playing ‘over the stump’ he will change it to ’round the stump’. Here he will achieve such an angle that if the ball goes straight, even if you try to defend it, the ball will touch the edge of the bat. ,

He wrote, “He constantly keeps his eyes on the batsman. If the batsman thinks of trying to sweep, Ashwin will bowl a little more full length ball and will stop him by bowling a little faster ball. ,
