However, Ashwin had a good series against Australia and is sure to bring an enormous experience to his side. With Ashwin’s inclusion, Virat Kohli and Ashwin became the only two players from the 2011 victorious team to appear in this World Cup.
Injuries have not only hit India, but almost all teams suffered the woes. Sri Lanka’s spin all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga and pacer Dushmantha Chameera were ruled out of the competition.
