Ravichandran Ashwin’s Insights on pitch :

The first day of the Test match witnessed intriguing twists and turns, and Ashwin provided insights into the challenges posed by the pitch. He noted, “It was pretty interesting in the first session, maybe there was a bit of moisture. Because of the early moisture, there was enough speed in the pitch in the first session. Then it slowed down.”

*In a game where adapting to changing conditions is crucial, Ashwin emphasized the need to mix pace and maintain consistency. He commented on the challenging nature of the pitch, stating, “You need to mix your pace up and be extremely consistent for you to not be giving runs in this pitch.”

Despite the challenges, England managed to post a competitive total of 240 runs, with Ashwin terming it as a “very, very good competitive total.” However, he admitted, “When we left the field, I was thinking probably 30-40 runs more than what we would have liked.”

The standout performance of the day came from the dynamic opening pair of Jaiswal and Rohit. Ravichandran Ashwin expressed relief, saying, “The start that Jaiswal and Rohit gave us is making us breathe a little easy.” He emphasized the importance of building on this foundation, stating, “Someone going on and making a hundred tomorrow will put us in the driver’s seat.”

Speaking specifically about Yashasvi Jaiswal,Ravichandran Ashwin marveled at the young cricketer’s journey. “That’s the beauty of playing this sport at this level. Somebody breaks through the system, doesn’t have any excess baggage, had a great time in the IPL, had a wonderful start to his first-class cricket.”

Ashwin further praised Jaiswal’s seamless transition to Test cricket, noting, “He’s walked into Test cricket; he’s taken it like a fish to water. His carefree approach is enabling him to play some wonderful shots. I am quite enjoying it.”

Drawing an interesting comparison, Ashwin remarked, “I get a feeling sometimes when he’s batting, I am seeing Rishabh Pant there. Both of them bat similarly to the left-arm spinner. Jaiswal has got a lot of shots; his range is pretty wide, and the fearless approach at the moment is serving him really well.”

As the cricketing world eagerly anticipates the second day, Jaiswal’s fearless batting has not only eased the nerves in the Indian camp but has also set the stage for a potentially dominant position in the match.
