Laxman wants Ashwin to be the first choice spinner in WTC final
VVV Laxman speaking on the forthcoming WTC final on a YouTube channel believes that Ashwin has to be the first choice spinner for India against New Zealand.
Putting forward his argument Laxman reasoned that Ashwin was one of the most successful bowlers against Australia. In their epic test series clash down under and took 11 wickets in 3 tests before missing the historic Gabba test due to fitness.
Laxman wants Ashwin to be the first choice spinner in WTC final. Laxman also said that Ashwin had totally dominated Australia in that series and troubled all their batsmen. Especially Smith, whom he got out a few times and continued his success against England at home. Destroying them by getting 32 wickets in 4 tests.
Ashwin is also very dangerous against lefthanders, dismissing them more than 200 times in tests. Therefore will be a handful against the top lefthanders of New Zealand, Devon Conway, Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls.
New Zealand will be high on confidence in the WTC final. After winning their first test series in England in 22 years. Also, there is intermittent rain forecast during the WTC final which is more likely to assist the New Zealand seamers.
