India’s Test all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin scored his first half-century in county cricket on day two of the division two game between Worcestershire and Durham in Worcester.
Ashwin smashed 82 off 130 balls and eventually, he turned out to be the highest-scorer in Worcestershire’s innings which ended at 335 all out in 90.2 overs.
The other two who scored half-centuries were Joe Clarke (65) and Ed Barnard (75).
Indian selectors officially ‘rested’ the off-spinner for the ongoing ODI series against Australia and currently, he is playing his fourth county game ever since his county debut last month.
In the previous three outings, the premier off-spinner has taken 13 wickets including a five-wicket haul against Gloucestershire.
