Pathan also put a spotlight on the sessions of discussions that have raged since the commencement of the Test match series with this Tweet. Most of the fans were confused by Ashwin’s omission. The Indian side has used a four-pacer combine with Ravindra Jadeja as the only spinner in all 4 Test matches. As a result, there was a big controversy on social networks, as the judgement did not sit well with cricket fans and analysts.
One Ravi can’t be with the team.
One Ravi is with the team but not in it.
But there’s still one Ravi who is both with the team and in it so let’s back him to win it! #ENGvsIND
