At the start of the second innings, Ashwin brought back a 100-year-old precedent


Bangla Hunt Desk: England made a mountain of runs by batting in the first innings. No Indian bowler has had such success in front of England batsmen. However, in the beginning of the second innings of England, Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin gave a blow. He returned the first ball to England opener Rory Barnes. Rory Burners could not handle the bounce of Ashwin’s ball in the first ball of the innings.
