IND vs BAN: Ravichandran Ashwin Explodes On Indian Top Order, Targets Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, And Cheteshwar Pujara. After scoring an unbeaten 42 and taking six wickets to help India win the second Test in Dhaka and the series 2-0, Ravichandran Ashwin demonstrated his value as an all-rounder. He compiled an unbroken 71-run stand with Shreyas Iyer (29*), leading India to a thrilling victory.
India finished day 3 on 45/4 and had to hit 145 to win. Early in day four, they lost the wicket of Jaydev Unadkat (13). Then, in quick succession, Mehidy Hasan struck again, eliminating Rishabh Pant for 9 and Axar Patel for 34.
After then, Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer teamed up to take control of the situation. Both teams began by playing cautiously, and as India got to within 30 runs of the mark, they both accelerated and finished the job quickly.

“Game was on the line. I thought Bangladesh played really well. The game had to be won the hard way. Shreyas batted beautifully, if he wasn’t the player of the series, I’d have shared this with him,” said Ashwin.
The seasoned Indian spinner praised the Bangladesh bowlers as well for placing their deliveries ineffective spots during the Test match.
Bangladesh Put Us Under Real Pressure At Certain Moments: Ravichandran Ashwin
“Credit to Bangladesh, they put us under real pressure at certain moments. They bowled well. But we needed to trust our defense. I wanted to get in and support Shreyas,” Ashwin added further.
He finished by maintaining a comment on the Test series’ pitches. For the spinners, both pitches had a turn and bounce. The batters from both sides, however, found it difficult because of the inconsistent bounce in between.
“Pitches were good, they were a touch slow. But the ball made a difference. The hosts put us under a lot of pressure. Good performances as well,” Ashwin concluded saying.
