Could well be Kuldeep’s last white-ball game for India. He’s lost the stomach it seems #INDvEng— Vikrant Gupta (@vikrantgupta73) March 26, 2021
Ashwin should be in the playing eleven.— dinesh blake (@dineshsuryasfc) March 26, 2021
He can perform well.
When Chahal plays Kuldeep looks better, when Kuldeep plays Chahal looks better, in reality both are finished, need to move on from them like we moved on from Ashwin Jadeja in 2017— Nitin (@LoyalMIfan) March 26, 2021
Kuldeep is not doing good since longtime. Dont know why Kohli is so adamant for @ashwinravi99 . Ashwin deserves a call in white ball cricket. Ashwin-Jadeja pair makes our team complete in white ball.— Raj Singh (@Rjcoming19) March 27, 2021
For godsake bring back Ashwin in the shorter format!! Jadeja and Ashwin are lethal soon duo together..— Aeishwariya (@aeis_raje) March 26, 2021

Kholi needs to try him out atleast for couple of series and then decide..
Kuldeep lost his touch long back..
Once kholi hailed this kulcha as his big weapons.. things have changed drastically ☹️#INDvENG pic.twitter.com/K7Kf2nO0e8
England won the toss and asked Team India to bat first. Despite of having a poor start, the team managed to score 337 runs. Tackling the poor bowling attack of team India, England chased down the total in the 44th over of their innings. Johnny Bairstow who scored a mammoth century named as the man of the match.
“Maybe the wicket settled a bit better but that’s no excuse. We just defended a score two days ago. Tonight was a case of lack of execution at certain stages but they didn’t give us anything. It’s rare to play at such a high strike-rate and not give any chances.” said Indian skipper Kohli. “I never played for hundreds in my life, probably why I ended up getting so many in such a short while. It’s more important for the team to win. If I get a three-figure score and the team doesn’t win, it means nothing.” he added.
