Ashwin, Jadeja told that wrist spinners being tried: Laxman

New Delhi, Sep 12 : Former India batsman VVS Laxman does not see anything unusual in R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja being rested from the upcoming series against Australia as he believes the selection panel has “communicated” to them, its decision to try young spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Ashwin and Jadeja have been officially “rested” by the BCCI from the five-match ODI and three-match Twenty20 series against Australia. But Ashwin has been playing county cricket which contradicts the selectors’ claims. “After the Champions Trophy, the selection committee took a policy decision. They wanted to have a look at some of the wrist spinners, which would add variety to the attack,” Laxman said at a promotional event, here today.
“I sincerely believe that Ashwin and Jadeja have been communicated to by the selectors. The selectors must have told both of them that they want to try two wrist spinners, who are very talented. They will get to play against a top quality side like Australia. Also, it doesn’t mean that Ashwin or Jadeja have been dropped,” Laxman tried to explain his viewpoint. (Agencies)
