Mumbai: Ravichandran Ashwin, who is currently with Team India, is not in the playing XI for the two-match Test series against West Indies in Antigua. In the first match, India completely destroyed West Indies to register a massive 318-runs win over the hosts.
During the first Test, Ravindra Jadeja was selected in place of Ashwin and Jadeja cemented his place with a crucial 50 in the first innings. Jadeja’s 50 helped India to reach a modest total of 297.
Ashwin loves playing against West Indies. And, his track records show that how much he loves to score and scalp wickets against the Caribbeans. The spin maestro has notched up four 100s and also scalped 60 wickets in just 11 games. Ashwin, who last played against Australia earlier this year, got injured, and had to sit out for many matches.
For selection, Ashwin had played English county cricket and IPL 2019. Ashwin, who is already out of favour in the shorter formats (T20Is and ODIs), has to fight out it out against teammate Kuldeep Yadav in the longer format as well.
Fan edits photo of Ashwin’s wife Prithi to make it look like she’s sitting with him on cruise
Recently, Ashwin was seen spending fun times on a cruise with teammates KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli, and Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma. However, after a fan noticed that Ashwin was sitting isolated, the fan used his creativity to put Ashwin’s wife Prithi Narayanan sitting beside him. The fan photoshopped Prithi’s photo, to make it look like she is sitting beside Ashwin on the cruise.

Meanwhile, Ashwin wife after seeing the photo, reacted hilariously and jokingly stated “HAHAHAHA but but but #whythegap ?.” The fan tried very hard to put Prithi beside Ashwin, but, despite his efforts, a gap was left between the spinner and his wife following which Narayanan asked why is there a gap between her and her husband.
HAHAHAHA but but but #whythegap ? ? https://t.co/iUHV3WjNXM— Prithi Ashwin (@prithinarayanan) August 28, 2019
The photo nearly resembled to what International Star Priyanka Chopra had done just a few days ago, after she photoshopped herself with husband Nick Jonas, who was all alone at the recent MTV Video Music Awards, while his two brothers were accompanied by their partners.
