Team India is struggling and looking for all the ways to draw this ongoing test match by just having four wickets in the hands. With Shubman Gill losing his wicket to James Anderson, Pujara, Rahane, Pant and Washington Sundar also returned to pavilion by just scoring single digit scores. Now, the home team requires Ravichandran Ashwin and Captain Kohli to stay in the crease till the stumps to save the match. Meanwhile, to make him edge the ball, Jofra Archer, consistently bowled bouncers to Ashwin which attacked his wrists, his spinning fingers and helmet. The Chennai based cricketer required the assistance of physiotherapy in a constant manner only to face Archer again.
Meanwhile, a seven year old tweet of the England pacer is going viral among the netizens with reactions slamming him for bowling such bouncers to Ashwin despite of his injury. In the tweet which was uploaded on 11th December of 2013, Archer wrote “Men killing ashwin”
Here’s the tweet :

However, Ashwin got out for 9 runs while trying to cut the ball bowled by Jack Leech. Ashwin faced 44 balls and tried to stay till the end of the day but the extra bounce played the spoil sport for him. Comment your views on this tweet of Archer !!
