4 Test series between India and Australia from February 9
Australian batsman said a big thing about R Ashwin
Melbourne. Australia’s team is visiting India next month for the Border-Gavaskar series of 4 Tests. The first match of the Test series will be played between the two countries in Nagpur from 9 February. Even before this, the Australian team has started playing mindgames. Left-handed batsman Matt Renshaw, who has been selected for the Test series against India, admitted that Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be the most difficult to play in the four-Test series against India starting on 9 February.
Before the Border Gavaskar Trophy starting in Nagpur, everyone’s focus is on how Australian batsmen play this fiery Indian off-spinner. In 2021, Ashwin became the first bowler to dismiss 200 left-handed batsmen. The Australian team has many left-handed batsmen including David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Travis Head, wicketkeeper Alex Carey and Renshaw himself.
Renshaw told AAP, ‘It is difficult to play Ashwin. He is a clever bowler and has got a lot of variety, which he uses very well. But after playing it for some time it becomes easy. It is a tough challenge for the left-handed batsman.

He said, ‘There is a danger of getting caught out in the slip on his turn ball. But you can be stumped on a ball that does not take spin. Have to be ready for that. He got a lot of help in preparing to play in the Big Bash League as his team was full of spinners.
According to Renshaw, the situation will be different in India. But we have made complete preparations keeping that in mind. On going to India, we will have a week’s time, in which we will make the preparations firm.
