R Ashwin’s response when asked about India’s prospect of winning the WTC final

India is to clash with New Zealand in the World Test Championship final from June 18 in Southampton. With each passing day, the anticipation towards the final result keeps growing. India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin feels India will repeat their performance like they did in Australia.

Ashwin is well known for his strong contribution with the bat and ball. The all-rounder said, India will adapt quickly to the conditions in England, like they did down under.

“Once we go there I think the Indian team will adapt quickly and perform like we did in Australia, Ashwin told New Indian Express.

“We are at least another week to 10 days away from even practising for the first time. Most of the players have not played cricket since the IPL was called off. So, I think that is one of the biggest challenges,” he said.

Ashwin along with the rest of the team is undergoing mandatory quarantine before the team leaves for England.

“As players, one thing we all realised is that even amidst all this negativity, we were able to put a smile on people’s faces. We definitely understand that a lot of people are not being able to lead normal lives. But we realise that we can also put a smile on their faces, which is something that all cricketers can take pride in.

“Everybody inside the team definitely empathizes and understands what’s going on. And our thoughts are with all those people who are struggling,” he said.
