Sydney: Indian team captain Ajinkya Rahane said Ravichandran Ashwin’s desire to learn new things and improve Ravindra Jadeja at bat against Australia India has won a lot in the opening 2 matches of the current Test series.
Ravichandran Ashwin, with 10 wickets, is now the highest wicket taker in the series. Ravindra Jadeja had laid the groundwork for the team’s victory by playing a century-long partnership with the captain, with a half-century round in the second test played in Melbourne.

Asked about Ashwin’s sharp bowling, Rahane said, “He’s always trying to learn new things. He has great skills but he always wants to learn new things and that’s what makes Ashwin great. I hope it will continue to perform well in the next 2 tests as well. Rahane is impressed with Ashwin’s improved bowling, so he’s happy with Jadeja’s strike in the tryout, which works to create the necessary balance for the team.
He said: “Ravindra Jadeja has improved a lot as a batsman and that is a very positive aspect from a team perspective. When you know your number 7 player can contribute with the bat, then it becomes easy for you to increase the competitive score. Obviously he’s amazing on the lineup as well, you must have seen him catch some great catches.
The Indian captain said: “In such a situation he’s helping us a lot by joining the team and he’s been really fantastic. It is very good for us. He said he was happy that Rohit Sharma joined the Final 11. Rahane said Rohit, playing his first Test after 13 months, had taken part in the net session 7 or 8 times before the game. The captain said Rohit will start the heats.
He said: “He beats really well in the net session, his 7-8 sessions were good. He came to Melbourne and started training with the end of our game. Rahane has indicated that Sydney’s throw will be useful for the stick. He said: “Looking at the history of Sydney, it’s a very good wicket, a very good wicket, so you just have to play good cricket.”
At the Sydney Cricket Ground, the spinners will be helped, so Rahane wouldn’t want to take any chances against Nathan Lyon. He said: “ Yeah, we have good spinners, but Lion is his quality spinner, who has done well here, so we don’t want to take anyone lightly. ”
