IND vs NZ: Mohammad Kaif backs Ashwin – Virat Kohli’s decision to drop Ravichandran Ashwin to the bench didn’t go down well with former Indian batsman Mohammad Kaif. After yet another impressive performance against New Zealand, Kaif said, it is high time that Ashwin becomes a regular in India’s Test Playing XI irrespective of where the match is being played.

Ravichandran Ashwin wasn’t included in the playing XI when India locked horns with England earlier this year in the Test series. But the right arm off-spinner performed brilliantly in the recently concluded Test series against New Zealand. India defeated New Zealand by 372 runs in the second Test of the two-match series here at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.

“Another Man of the Series for India’s trusted match-winner. High time Ashwin becomes a regular in Test playing XI. And I mean both home and away. Spinners need to be given confidence and Ashwin has done enough to deserve that faith. @ashwinravi99,” Mohammad Kaif tweeted.

Meanwhile, with this win, Team India is back to the number 1 spot in ICC Test rankings. The victory over New Zealand also means India sealed the two-match series 1-0, and now Kohli’s side will head to South Africa for three Tests and three ODIs, beginning December 26.
