In a surprising turn of events, Ravichandran Ashwin, the off-spinner, has found himself back in the spotlight as he makes a remarkable return to India’s final 15-man squad for the upcoming ICC World Cup. Ashwin’s inclusion comes due to the injury of Axar Patel in the Asia Cup.

Ashwin’s selection has been preferred over other potential players like Washington Sundar stems from his invaluable experience in big matches. Notably, he has been absent from India’s ODI lineup since 2017, making his comeback more interesting.

The 115 ODIs that Ashwin has played have provided him with experience in handling pressure situations, and the recent performance against Australia has played a pivotal role in his selection for the World Cup.
