NEW DELHI, Sep. 29, 2023 (TBINN)

India have predictably named veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin as a replacement for injured spin bowling all-rounder Axar Patel in their 15-member squad for the upcoming O.D.I. World Cup, I.C.C. announced.

Notably, Axar sustained a quadriceps tear and is not expected to recover anytime soon, forcing the Ajit Agarkar-led Selection Committee to name 37-year-old Ashwin, who took four wickets in the two O.D.I.s during the recently concluded series against Australia, in the squad.

Axar Patel has failed to recover in time for the World Cup after sustaining a left quadriceps strain during India’s Asia Cup Super Four encounter against Bangladesh. The spin-bowling all-rounder missed the final of the Asia Cup as a result, I.C.C. stated.
