Delhi Capitals spinner Ashwin 'updating spin-bowling software' ahead of game against Rajasthan Royals
Delhi Capitals on Monday shared a picture of Aswhin in which the spinner can be seen pondering upon while rolling the ball.
Bairstow had scores of 0, 0, 0 and 28 in the four innings that he played in England's 1-3 Test series defeat against India, prompting Gavaskar to comment that he looked 'uninterested'.
In the recently concluded Test series against England, Ashwin became the fourth Indian bowler to take more than 400 wickets in the longest format of the game.
Kohli said all-rounder Washington Sundar, who played against Australia in India's last T20I outing, remains the hosts' first choice unless he himself underperforms in the later stages.
In the three Tests he played, Ashwin scored a 106 in the second innings of India's second Test victory over England at Chennai and took his 400th Test wicket in the third Test victory at Ahmedabad.
The Delhi Capitals head coach wishes to see Pant replicating his heroics in the cash-rich league slated to begin from April 9.
WTC: Ravichandran Ashwin says best of three final would have been nicer, but team will give best shot
Team India on Saturday roared into the final of the inaugural edition of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) following an emphatic 3-1 series win over England.
Sundar had played an unbeaten knock of 96 runs in the first innings as the hosts went on to take a lead of 160 runs in the fourth Test.
In 2015, the spinner had registered 31 wickets in the four-match series against South Africa.
For the hosts, spinners Axar Patel (4/68) and Ravichandran Ashwin (3/47) shared seven wickets between them, while pacer Mohammed Siraj (2/45) also accounted for two batsmen.
Aswin, 34, also became the second fastest bowler to reach the land-mark after Sri Lanka spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan.
Ashwin, who has featured in 111 ODIs and 46 T20Is, besides 77 Tests, has been out of India's limited overs side for a few years now.
Ravichandran Ashwin said he was sceptical about how the pink ball would behave even while bowling at the nets.
The two-day finish to the third Test, which saw England lose 10 wickets and India seven in one day, led to this strong criticism.
Even skipper Virat Kohli was vocal about the dreadful batting display from the two teams. Ashwin has now echoed the sentiments.
