Compton feels Kohli has personal issues with Ashwin after his non-selection in 4th Test


Former England cricketer Nick Compton shared a controversial opinion regarding the non-selection of R Ashwin in the Indian playing XI for the 4th Test match between the Indian cricket team and the England cricket team currently underway at the Kennington Oval in London. Yesterday, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli informed at the toss that there were a couple of changes in the playing XI from the Leeds Test match.


Indian cricket team’s experienced fast bowlers Mohammad Shami and Ishant Sharma had a niggle. As a result, the team management decided to bring in the duo of Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur. Many fans opined that R Ashwin could have been picked because he is a top-class all-rounder. But Kohli and co. continued to use their template of four quicks and one spin bowler.

When the Indian cricket team’s playing XI for the fourth Test match against the England cricket team came out, former England opener Nick Compton shared the following tweet:


“Please can someone explain how Kohli obvious personal issues with Ashwin are allowed to cloud an obvious selection issue?”

It is a little tough to understand what Compton wanted to say, but it seems like he opined that Kohli has some personal issues with R Ashwin. Hence, the Indian skipper did not pick him in the team, as per Nick.
