India off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin returned figures of 6 for 27 for Surrey in a County Championship match in opposition to Somerset at The Oval on Tuesday. Courtesy of Ashwin’s haul, Somerset have been bowled out for a mere 69 of their second innings after having put up 429 runs of their first innings. Ashwin acquired Somerset wicket-keeper Steve Davies caught behind to get among the many wickets within the innings. The off spinner adopted it with getting Tom Lammonby caught by Rikki Clarke to go away Somerset reeling at 13 for two.

Ashwin ran via Somerset’s center order as he dismissed captain James Hildreth lbw, bowled George Bartlett and trapped Roelof van der Merwe lbw as effectively.
When Ashwin bowled Ben Green, Somerset have been in tatters at 67 for 9.
Despite the collapse, an enormous first-innings complete meant that Somerset set Surrey, who was bowled out for 240 of their first innings, 259 runs to chase on the ultimate day of the match.
Ashwin’s returns bode effectively for India forward of their five-Test collection in opposition to England beginning August 4 at Trent Bridge.
The Indian Test crew has been in England for greater than a month now as they arrived on English shores forward of the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand at Southampton in June.
The Test collection in opposition to England can even mark the start of a brand new cycle of World Test Championship.
The Trent Bridge Test shall be adopted by matches at Lord’s, Headingley, The Oval and Old Trafford.
