R Ashwin failed because of Mitchell Starc's absence in Ranchi: Saurav Ganguly
Sourav Ganguly felt left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc's absence in Ranchi Test against Australia played a big role in the pale show of off-spinners from both the sides.Ganguly was of the view that India's Ravichandran Ashwin and his Australian counterpart Nathan Lyon's didn't get much purchase from the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) Stadium track because of the lack of rough outside the off-stump, which is often created by the left-arm bowlers. Off-spinners did not get wickets here. This is because Mitchell Starc was not there, so the rough outside off-stump was not created," Ganguly said after the Test between India and Australia ended in a draw.
