IND vs AUS: Ravichandran Ashwin & James Anderson Tussle For No.1 Test Bowling Spot In ICC Rankings


The 2023 BGT is proving to be a fascinating contest where the Aussies have made a stellar comeback in the 3rd Test Match. The visitors qualified for the final of the ICC WTC 2021-23. Ravichandran Ashwin he has taken 18 scalps which includes a 5-wicket haul. Ravichandran Ashwin he has been patron Rohit Sharma’s favorite bowler and has not only bowled for long stretches but has also been the partnership breaker.

Australia would try to square up the series as not many gave them a chance after a disappointing performance in the first 2 Test matches in Nagpur and Delhi. Under the rule of Patron Steven, the team has rediscovered its magic and come to be seen as a threatening unit.

Ravichandran Ashwin and James Anderson tied for ICC ranking

Ravichandran Ashwin is rated 859 as is James Anderson. With English sprinter James Anderson not taking part in any Test matches until June against Ireland, Ashwin has a great chance to become the No. 1 Test bowler. similar to the Indore test match.

Great opportunity for India

A victory for India in the fourth test match at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad would seal the final spot of the 2021-23 WTC even if Sri Lanka win the test series against New Zealand 2-0. Captain Rohit Sharma would be waiting for the batsmen to mash the bowlers before playing a brand of attacking cricket where we witnessed the Men in Blue go down like a pack of cards in the Indore test match.

It seems unlikely that right-arm speedster Scott Boland would get a game as all 3 spinners had created havoc in the memorable win. Captain Steven Smith would aim to get a big score to his credit as the hitter has starts but hasn’t capitalized on it in BGT 2023.
