They had break-up?
Ashwin shouldn't be in playing 11. Time and time he had been there in 11 in sena and he was average on pitches where opposition spinners wrecked hovac
Name one instance in the past 5 years of that.
Ashwin was out bowled by Mo in England in a lot of the 2018 tour
Not a lot, it was only one match: the one where Mo took 9 wickets. The comment implied that there were multiple instances where he was worse than opposition spinners who wreaked havoc on the same pitches in SENA, and the Moeen 9 wickets match is the only one in which that happened. I think his poorest overseas tour in a long time was his recent South Africa tour where he averaged 51, but was still the best spinner there as Maharaj got only one wicket the whole tour.
But that's fair. I asked to name one and you did.
Also Mo did outbowl Ashwin fair and square but it was clear he was dealing with an injury throughout that Southampton game, and afterwards the management admitted they played him through a side strain (or something like this, maybe a little less serious). It was phenomenally stupid as selection policy.
When he was fit, he took 7-121 in the 2018 game at Edgbaston first game of the series.
