I believe Ravichandran Ashwin couldn’t have made a difference to the playing eleven except for his range of options in bowling on pitches with a turn enough for sending backpacks to the opposition.
Opting for Ravindra Jadeja who could very well bowl and bat would have sounded safe an opinion and option for Virat Kohli as for Jadeja’s appetite for wickets by conceding runs on the board. English cricketers are known for their precision and prowess in all round format of cricket asking for a tough taskmaster assessing and evaluating their strengths and spirits.

However, for Team India, batting still mounts as a competitive challenge which has to be overcome with the middle order crumbling, slipping and sliding. At least, effort taking abilities and actions has to be nurtured and nourished offering players a chance for reform and perform pouring and putting their best.
Ajinkya Rahane can deliver by amending his stance grasping the mindset and mentality of the bowler as for an inconsistent Rishabh Pant adjusting and balancing his footwork while batting and wicketkeeping has to be taken note of.
India comprehensively beating England in Lords and Oval was something to be lived and relished but for the dismay and disappointment given the conclusion of our sides capacity and caliber. Kohli and company may have made England bite the dust with the last match of the series scheduled in Manchester a lot will depend on how the guests arrange and configure themselves up throwing the hat into the ring without going into the details of the case levelling ifs and buts.
I understand for someone like Umesh Yadav, Bumrah and Thakur following and relying on instincts is important from the point of play keeping the idea of fifth bowler open as for the track which can turn anyway round as for the uncertainties and unfamiliarity of it.
