Australia’s assistant coach Daniel Vettori feels R Ashwin might just miss out on playing XI in the ICC World Test Championship final.

Australia are awaiting Ravindra Jadeja to feature in India’s playing XI in the World Test Championship final but are doubtful about Ravichandran Ashwin‘s participation in the marque contest to be played at The Oval starting June 7. India utilised three baits during the recent Border- Gavaskar jewel series with both Ashwin( 25 lattices) and Jadeja( 22) struggling bright to help their side claim a 2- 1 series palm.

Talking to original media previous to Australia’s training session at the Kent County Cricket Ground in Beckenham on Thursday, assistant trainer Daniel Vettori said the platoon operation had a lot of discussion about India’s probable bowling attack.

“We’ve been mooting that,” Vettori said.

“I suppose Jadeja will play because of the fur he brings to the table and how successful he has been at that No. 6 position.

“Also the question will be around that fourth attachment and the all- rounder in (Shardul) Thakur and Ashwin, but they’re( both) enough good choices.” Vettori, still, feels Ashwin might just lose out on a spot in the playing XI because of platoon combination despite enjoying a decent record in England.

The endured off- incentive has a aggregate of 18 lattices at an normal of 28.11 from seven matches in England but has played just one Test at The Oval.

“Ashwin is an inconceivable bowler and he’ll be first choice in utmost brigades, and just with their combinations it may lead to that (him missing selection),” Vettori said.

“We anticipate The Oval to bear how it always behaves.

“It’s a good gate, but it can offer a lot to the baits as the game goes on.” Vettori also expects Cameron Green to play a big part in the WTC final, especially after his superb caching in the just- concluded IPL.

“Any justice is medication now. He’s doing work in the background to make sure his bowling loads are over and he’s actually ready for Test justice,” Vettori said of Green.

“We look at it like if you’re involved in high- intensity, high- class justice, we’re happy with that as it means you’re playing justice.

“The hardest thing for guys is coming out of nothing and that might be a challenge for a couple of guys who have had an extended break and how they get up to speed as snappily as possible,” he said.

“With Cameron I suppose he has been playing so important justice, he’ll be fine. It’s great to have him back. He offers so important to the platoon and had a great series in India for us and also is coming off the reverse of a successful IPL.” Know More Latest Cricket News…
