“Virat Kohli said he didn’t need a night watchman” – Ravi Ashwin reveals dressing room conversation during India’s run-chase in the second Test against Bangladesh

India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has now opened up the dressing room conversation that happened during India’s tense moments in the team’s run-chase in the Dhaka Test match against Bangladesh.

After taking the first lead in the series with a 188-run win in Chattogram, Indian players approached the second Test with grit, confidence and determination. However, these things were observed only in the first innings.

Needless to say, they were under immense pressure when they lost four wickets for 44 runs. They required 100 more runs to seal the deal in the second Test with two days in hand.

The visitors also lost three more wickets on Day 4 but they found support in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer as the duo added a match-winning partnership and helped India pull off the ropes in style.

Team India beat Bangladesh by three wickets in a thrilling encounter and also won the series. Ravichandran Ashwin scored a match-winning 42 and took six wickets to his name and rightly so, he was named the man of the match.

Meanwhile, the veteran off-spinner has revealed the dressing room conversation during the nervy moments in the run-chase against the Tigers. Ravi Ashwin said the batting coach Vikram Rathour asked the batsmen if they needed a night watchman in the first place.

While Virat Kohli denied it in the first place, Rishabh Pant’s hilarious reply left the veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in stitches. Ravi Ashwin spoke about Rishabh Pant’s reply on his YouTube channel.

Rishabh Pant said he really needs watchmen throughout the night because he will go out and play tomorrow and this reply left Ravichandran Ashwin in splits. Meanwhile, India are second on the ICC WTC points table and they will be looking forward to doing well in the four-match Test series against the Aussies starting on February 9.
