R Ashwin: Team India’s former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has given a big statement regarding Indian spinner R Ashwin.

This powerful player said these things on the occasion of the launch of ‘Yuvraj Singh Center of Excellence’.

When Yuvraj Singh was asked whether R Ashwin is not getting proper opportunity in white ball cricket? So on this Yuvraj said, ‘Ashwin is a great bowler but I do not think he deserves a place in the T20 and ODI team. He bowls very well but what can he do for the team with the bat and in fielding? Yes, he should definitely be in the test team. But he does not deserve a place in white ball cricket.

India’s second top bowler in test cricket
