Indian all-rounder, Ravichandran Ashwin’s decision to review has been questioned by Brad Hogg. On the second day of the Mumbai Test, he was bowled by Ajaz Patel. The New Zealand spinner fooled Ashwin into thinking he was holding a golden duck. The Indian no. 7 moved forward to intercept a Patel ball. However, the ball twisted enough to get past his bat and rip the wickets apart. Even before that, Ashwin went for a review. The umpire lifted his hands in the air, believing he had been caught behind. But he soon noticed the ball had kissed the off-outer stump’s part. Before landing in the hands of the keeper. On social media, the Indian spinner’s choice to opt for the review was widely panned. Hogg thinks Ashwin should have talked to his partner about the dismissal. Before going for a review, the non-striker should.

“Surely India lose a review with Ashwin reviewing being bowled. If your unsure of why your out you consult your partner not be given a hint by the umpire,” Brad Hogg captioned.
“I was surprised he reviewed!” Hogg wrote.
Furthermore, Hogg said he was surprised to see Ravichandran Ashwin going for a referral. India lost Saha and Ashwin to Ajaz Patel, who picked up his third five-wicket haul in Tests. Also, in a span of just two deliveries to feel the early tremors. But centurion Mayank Agarwal and Axar Patel resisted the new ball. It is well to stitch another crucial partnership to bail the hosts out of danger.
Lastly, India was 269/6 at the time of writing, with Mayank Agarwal and Axar Patel both on 143. Ravichandran Ashwin recently passed Harbhajan Singh’s record of 417 wickets. In addition, he aspires to become India’s third-highest wicket-taker in the longer format. In Mumbai, the Indian off-spinner will be aiming for another huge record.
