“It was hurtful”- Ravichandran Ashwin on Australian media writing off India after the defeat in Adelaide

Australian media and many experts have written off the chances of India’s return, especially after Virat Kohli’s departure after the first test. However, in a triumph through the centuries, India earned a historic victory in the series with a 2-1 difference.

In chat with India Today, Ravichandran Ashwin opened how the team was hurt by the negative conversations in the media. However, the 34-year-old added that visitors were quietly confident among themselves.

“It was painful until the moment and I think the team channeled a nice sewer both inside and out. It came out. We were quietly confident and maybe people didn’t notice it. And it’s about the time we perform and to make people understand who we have been over the years, ”Ashwin said.

In this regard, Predilica added:

“What was very interesting was the number of people talking about how that particular departure of Virat Kohli from that team environment would completely bring down the team. They were talking about the departure of Virat, so this team ‘has no chance, 4-0 whitewash ‘etc., etc. A lot of things were talked about. I read a few of them after the Melbourne win because I saved them and didn’t think too much about negativity. “
