Even though it appeared like a careless delivery, India's off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin confessed that Cameron Green's dismissal was the result of a complex plot.
He contributed to Australia being dismissed for 480 on Day 2 of the fourth Test in Ahmedabad with his six-wicket haul on Friday.
Usman Khawaja (180), Green (114), and the rest of India's batting order appeared to be putting the team out of the game when
Ashwin came to the rescue by shattering the massive 208-run fifth-wicket partnership.
The 36-year-old detailed how he would spin the ball into Green after it landed on the stumps to offset his otherwise lengthy reach.
He has his strengths, correct? Also, you wish to avoid his strengths. I faced him in a practice match at the Drummoyne Oval in Sydney. Since then,
I've been observing his batting - how effectively he moves to balls outside off and how well he descends. I must keep an eye on all of these things and devise a strategy to make him uncomfortable.
