Big blow to Team India, Ravichandran Ashwin will not take part in the India-England third test match

The third match of the 5-match Test series between India and England is being played in Rajkot. Team India suffered a big shock on the second day of the match. Star spinner R. Ashwin had to withdraw his name due to family emergency. Captain Rohit Sharma's problems have increased after his sudden withdrawal from the match. Now it remains to be seen whether India will continue with 10 players or there will be a replacement.

In the Rajkot Test match, Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat first. After a bad start in the first day's play, he took the team forward with his strong century. On the other hand, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja supported him and made a comeback for India by making a partnership of 200 runs. Apart from the centuries of these two, debutant Sarfaraz Khan had scored a half-century in the first innings. Indian team scored 445 runs. On the second day, England scored 207 runs for 2 wickets.

R. Ashwin will no longer be a part of the team in this competition. In such a situation, the question is whether any player will get a chance to take his place. If the bowler is out will he be allowed to bowl? According to the rules, to include a player in the playing eleven as a replacement for Ashwin, the permission of England captain Ben Stokes and the team management is required. Akshar Patel is 12th in the team list while KS Bharat is 13th. In both of these, the captain can give a chance to anyone in place of Ashwin.
