Ravichandran Ashwin has been in the news during the Visakhapatnam Test against England. The veteran spinner has lost his cool on two consecutive days much to the amazement of the fans. 

At the end of day one, Ashwin was seen arguing with umpire Marais Erasmus. The reason behind the animated discussion isn’t known till now. It is safe to say that Ashwin wasn’t happy with something and the veteran player didn’t mince any words. 

On Saturday, Ashwin lost his cool yet again, and this time with veteran pacer James Anderson. The incident happened early on the second day of the second Test before the umpire stepped in. 

Ravichandran Ashwin was involved in an animated chat with James Anderson – 

England began the day with Shoaib Bashir and James Anderson as the second new ball was taken. Ravichandran Ashwin was at the non-striker's end when Anderson was running in to bowl to Yashasvi Jaiswal. 

The Indian veteran could be gesturing at James Anderson something as the English bowler stopped in his tracks. Marais Erasmus had a quiet word with the two players as Anderson could be seen making his points. 

One of the biggest points of contention was that Ashwin was perhaps running into the danger area. As the 37-year-old was taking a start, he was running a rough was getting created. This could aid spinners bowling to the right-handed batters from over the wicket. 

The battle between Ashwin and Anderson was won by the veteran England pacer. Batting on 20, Ashwin got a gentle out-swinger which took his bat as Ben Foakes did the rest. It was the first wicket of the day for the visitors to break the 34-run stand for the 7th wicket. 

Chasing 396 runs to take a first-innings lead, England began well yet again with the bat. Ben Duckett and Zak Crawley added 59 runs for the first wicket off just 10.2 overs. The two batters looked aggressive right from the start as they took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners. 

Kuldeep Yadav playing his first Test match since 2022 got the first wicket for India. Ben Duckett played back to a ball that bounced high as the batter got a huge edge. Rajat Patidar took his first catch in Test cricket to dismiss Duckett for 21. Zak Crawley continued the run-scoring as he compiled a half-century in quick time.
