R Ashwin: “Bangladesh made a brave decision, choose to bat first instead of bowling”

Team India All-rounder, Ravichandran Ashwin, praised Bangladesh’s decision of batting first after winning the toss in the first Test match on Thursday in Indore.

When Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque won the toss and chose to bat first on the Indore surface which had a tinge of green on it, few people raised their eyebrows.

India skipper Virat Kohli, too, said that he would have bowled first on the surface as his seamers would have been very effective on the pitch. The Indian captain was surprised as his bowlers wrapped up the opposition for around 150.

Ashwin personally commented, “It was a very brave decision, we expected them to bowl first, but they batted. However, the way they batted was commendable, few of their players were very good. It is never easy to bat on a surface which has life and which is damp and I thought Mominul and some of them batted well.”

The off-spinner, praising the efforts of the fast bowlers, said that the coordination they have been showing over the recent series has been remarkable.

Ashwin further added, “They have been some great collaborations, sometimes you feel something is happening in every spell they are bowling or at least they make it happen. Shami, Umesh, and Ishant have been bowling well as a pack. Add Bumrah to it and it becomes one of the most lethal pace bowling attacks in the world.”
