IND vs ENG: Ravichandran Ashwin Pulls Out of Rajkot Test Due to Family Medical Emergency

During the cricket match between India and England at Niranjan Shah Stadium in Rajkot, there’s some important news you should know about. Ravichandran Ashwin, a key player known for spinning the ball for India, won’t be playing because something urgent happened in his family. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed this after Day 2 of the Rajkot Test.

The BCCI really cares about Ashwin and his family. They think it’s really important for players and their families to be okay. They want everyone to be respectful and give Ashwin and his family some privacy during this hard time. The Board and the team said they’re going to help Ashwin and his family as much as they can. They also said a big thank you to the fans and the media for being understanding and supportive during this tough time.

Before this sad news, Ashwin did really well in the game. He scored 77 runs with Dhruv Jurel for the eighth wicket in India’s first innings. He also reached a big goal by getting his 500th Test wicket by dismissing Zak Crawley. This made him the second-fastest player to reach this goal in Test cricket. Ashwin is now the only Indian, besides Anil Kumble, to join the special 500-wicket club.

At the end of the day, Ashwin said his achievement was for his father, saying how important his father was to him. He was excited about the rest of the match, especially since England was behind by 238 runs and had 8 wickets left before he had to leave.

Ashwin not playing is a big loss for Team India. They won’t have one of their best bowlers, which will change how they play. They’ll also miss his batting skills later in the game. Since the match is close and spinners do well in India, Ashwin not playing could really change the final score by a lot.
