India’s top off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin leaves no stone unturned in his preparations by playing county cricket ahead of the five-Test series against England. Ashwin, who represented Surrey in the English County Championship, did not win the coveted victory over Somerset. He took just one wicket in 43 overs. In the second day of the four-day match, Somerset’s side were all out for 429 in 148.5 overs. Ashwin, who took more than 400 wickets in the Test, failed to impress.

He can only make one breakthrough after spending 99 runs. Tom Lemonboy (42) made his only breakthrough on the first day of the game. Surrey scored 24 without any loss until the end of the day’s game. Ashwin will be crucial to India’s success in the five-match Test series against host England starting August 4. Indian cricketer is on a three-week hiatus after World Cricket. The team will join the camp before the series against England in Durham on 14 July.

Ashwin achieved a major milestone on the first day of the match. Ashwin, playing for Surrey, bowled with a new ball against Somerset. With this, Ashwin became the first spinner to start bowling with a new ball in English county over the past 11 years. Before him, in 2010, Jeetan Patel had done such a thing. Prior to Surrey, Ashwin played for Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire.
