Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe has lashed out at the Indian team management's decision to drop R Ashwin from the playing XI against England.
"Someone please explain why R Ashwin is now a spectator? Frankly, he would be my fourth automatic pick after MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara in this Indian Test team.
He is a banker, yet he is being treated like a robber. He is being treated like a wheelie bin, dumped on the side of the road. Instead, Stuart Binny is deemed the better Test player," Crowe wrote in his column for ESPN Cricinfo.
