R Ashwin has defended the Indian cricket team after Michael Vaughan made a remark that they were ‘underachievers’ when it comes to major tournaments. Ashwin felt that India has been one of the best travelling teams when it comes to Test cricket. Renowned Indian cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin recently responded to comments made by former England captain Michael Vaughan, who labeled the Indian cricket team as ‘underachievers’ during a FOX Cricket panel discussion. In a fiery retort, Ashwin, a nominee for the ICC Men’s Test Cricketer of the Year, utilized his YouTube channel to address Vaughan’s remarks. Ashwin highlighted the resilience of the Indian team and their ability to deliver remarkable results in Test cricket, especially when playing on foreign soil. Furthermore, Ashwin addressed the criticism from Indian experts, questioning the team’s achievements. He humorously pointed out the hypothetical scenario where South Africa batted first in the Test match and how India, despite facing challenges early on, managed to bounce back. Ashwin also criticized the tendency of critics to scrutinize unnecessary details when evaluating the Indian team. He emphasized that the team has consistently demonstrated its resilience and fighting spirit, particularly in Test series, challenging the notion of them being underachievers in international cricket.
