Ravichandran Ashwin Retirement: Indian team’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been the subject of discussion ever since he did not get a place in Team India for the World Test Championship (WTC) final match. Now Ashwin made a big disclosure about his career and said that he had made up his mind to retire after the home Test series against Australia. However, his wife stopped him from doing so.
Ravichandran Ashwin had to deal with knee pain after 2 Test matches played during the Bangladesh tour at the end of the year 2022. After this, he had made up his mind to retire after the series against Australia. Although Ashwin changed his bowling action and he got the benefit of it.
Ravichandran Ashwin said in his statement to Indian Express that I am proud of what I have done in my life so far. One thing that can trouble the player at any time is the increasing age. When he becomes experienced, he wants to keep holding on to one thing so strongly that he does not face further problems in his career. When I came back from Bangladesh tour, I told my wife that the series against Australia might be my last.
Ashwin further said that I had some knee problem. I told him that I will change my bowling action a bit. I was not happy with my bowling either. Because the ball was not turning much. After that I decided to bowl with the action of the year 2013-14. At that time I went to Bangalore and there I had to take injections. But with the change in action, my knee pain also went away.
i would be proud of myself
Ravi Ashwin was given the title of Player of the Series in the Test series against Australia. Regarding this, Ashwin said that I am proud of myself for that award. For me it was one of the best performances in the last 4 to 5 years. I liked that I managed to do this at the age of 36 with a change in my bowling action.
