Ashwin Is In Practice Session Of The Australian Team Ahead Of Border Gavaskar Series

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy of 4 Tests between India and Australia will start on 9 February. The first test will be played in Nagpur. The Australian team started its preparation for this Test series. Pat Cummins’s Australian team has camped in Bengaluru and is doing special practice dealing with the Indian spin bowling attack.

For this, they have taken the support of R Ashwin. You must also wonder why Team India’s off-spinner Ashwin is helping the Australian batsmen. So tell them that those helping the Australia team are duplicates of Ashwin. The name of this bowler is Mahesh Pithia, and he plays domestic cricket for Baroda.

Mahesh Pithia is an off-spinner like Ashwin, and his action is very similar to Ashwin’s. For this reason, he is called a duplicate of Ashwin. Like Ashwin, the left-handed batters struggle a lot in front of Mahesh Pithia.

Mahesh saw R Ashwin bowling for the first time in 2013 against the West Indies. That was the time when he considered R Ashwin as his idol. In December last year, Mahesh made his first-class debut for Baroda.

Mahesh is giving special training to the Australian left-handed batters in the Bangalore camp. Australia has many left-handed batters like David Warner, Matt Renshaw, Travis Head, and Usman Khawaja. And Ashwin can become a problem for these batters. That’s why Mahesh Pithia prepares these batsmen on the specially prepared turning track. He bowled on the nets for hours.

As soon as the Australian team learns about Ashwin’s duplicate, R Ashwin will be the biggest threat to Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Test series. He immediately called him for training. Pritesh Joshi named Pithia in front of Australia’s assistant coach Andre Borovec, who is himself a part of Australia’s training camp.

Another left-arm spinner Mehrotra Shashank, who played first-class cricket for Hyderabad, attended the camp.
