Bombastic Take of Venkatesh Prasad on the Snub of "Champion" Ashwin

A week after being not included in the playing XI for the World Test Championship Finals, where captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid picked Umesh Yadav over Ravichandran Ashwin, Ashwin finally broke his silence on not being picked in an interview.

The interview immediately went viral, as the exclusion of Ashwin from the XI was the biggest talk around the Indian team and was regarded as one of the main factors behind the loss. Prasad, who is a former cricketer for Team India, also gave his take on the big statement made by Ashwin.

He tweeted, "So much depth, empathy, and awareness. What a champion is @ashwinravi99, on the field and off it."

A lot of former cricketers and experts had also come out in support of R. Ashwin, who is presently the No. 1 ranked Test bowler in the world with over 400 Test wickets. He recently ended the home series against the Australian cricket team in March, where he picked up 25 wickets in four matches.
