“I feel, you really have to manage Ravi Ashwin. The communication between the players and support staff has to be very transparent and I am sure Ashwin well understands the reasoning or logic behind this decision. Ashwin is also an experienced player and also a leader within this team.”

“I think Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli will have a chat with him and make him understand the scenario. A good team and good team players always understand the bigger picture rather than focusing on themselves. I am sure Ashwin will understand and ‘accept’ this, which is very important,” said VVS Laxman while speaking on ESPNcricinfo’s YT channel.

The Indian skipper also explained his stand on not including Ashwin in this game. He said that England have four left-handers and hence, it will be a good match-up for Jadeja.
