The left-handed all-rounder was awarded Player of the Match in the first two Tests as he scored 70 runs and picked seven wickets in the first match while he picked a ten-wicket haul in the second one.

Coming back to the final day of the fourth Test played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, Australia started the day on 6/0 with Travis Head and Matthew Kuhnemann at the crease. Ashwin took the wicket of Kuhnemann in the first session, however, team India couldn’t make inroads into the Australian batting line-up as the pitch didn’t deteriorate enough to provide assistance to the spinners.
