Moreh told Star Sports that they should have replaced Ashwin with Mohammad Shami and added an extra pacer or else Axar Patel. I was amazed. How did Ashwin get into the team? That and the question I ask myself every time I bring him into the team. He was also included in the last T20 World Cup squad. After that he was not played. His IPL record is not that good either.

He did everything he was told, yet he was left out of the Asia Cup; Parthiv on the young star

I was shocked to see Ashwins name on the Asia Cup squad says Kiran More

I feel pain about Shami. Either he or Axar should have been included in the team. Axar has done well for Windies. But my player is Shami. He should also be given a place in the World Cup team. Because we need bowlers who take wickets. Ravi Bishnoi’s inclusion in the Asia Cup team is a good thing, but he was shocked to see Ashwin’s name in the team squad, Kiran More said.

Indian Team for Asia Cup- Rohit Sharma (Capt), KL Rahul (VC), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, R Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Y Chahal, R Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar , Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan.
