WC this year. As a youngster, when you go to WI, there will be challenges. In all countries, there will be some innate secrets. The local players.
Will know about these little things more than the visiting teams, especially when they are youngsters,” said Ashwin on his Youtube channel.
“When I went to WI, England and Australia for the first time, I had to learn a lot of little things. When I went to Australia as a spinner in 2011.
I only knew one thing about red-ball cricket. My coach taught me that if a batter bats well and you are going through a tough spell, spin the.
Ball really hard. I would try to spin hard and even harder on being hit for fours and sixes. That was all I knew on my first tour. But after that tour.
I became richer as a cricketer. In Australia, I cannot just keep giving more air here. They can hit me down the wicket, smash me against the spin.
And with the wind as well. Another thing in Australia, there will be a cross breeze from one side. Even if you are an off-spinner, Aussies will step out.
And smash you through the offside. This all is not the norm in India. It was my first time in Australia,” he added. Ashwin backed youngsters to.
Come good in future, saying that they will emerge as better and richer cricketers after the tour to WI, though he said that criticism of the loss was fair.
