SPORT-IND-ASHWIN 2 LAST

first_img(REOPENS DEL 32) (REOPENS DEL 32) Pressure is buzzwoprd heading into the marquee clash but Ashwin said there are a lot of other factors that affect the players. “Cricket is a psychological game. I find it quite amusing, when people say you will have to keep it simple, its not. Its a psychological game. Unless youre exceptionally talented you find yourself losing a psychological battle.” Ashwin also preferred not to read much into their defeat against the Kiwis. “If we knew we would have got out for 79, we would have tried to bowl them out for a lesser score,” he quipped. “Unfortunately we did not. We have been doing a fabulous job. It was a bad day. They bowled brilliantly. We got to give credit to Santner. Obviously we contributed to their success. If at all theres an International team which can put it behind and go forward, it is us. “Its not the first time this has happened to us. We have done it in the past. We have it in us to come back from behind. That is what were looking forward to. Its about understanding the game, the ground, the wicket and all that. Whichever team gets used to it may have an edge. “Its not the right time to relook and revisit our strategies. Its about fine-tuning and trusting our abilities. We cant change a whole lot, can we?,” he concluded. PTI TAP AT PM PMlast_img read more
