Ashwin was recently compared to Australian legend Sir Don Bradman in the bowling department by their former skipper Steve Waugh compared. His services in the upcoming four-match Test series will be vital keeping in mind the subcontinent pitch conditions. The first Test is to be held on February 23 at Pune, whose surface is supposed to be low and slow. As the game progresses, the wicket will help the spinners and that’s when Ashwin comes into play. Until and unless the Pune pitch does not stay true to its nature, Ashwin will have a key role to play in the outcome of the game.
