Srinagar: India’s ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has withdrawn from the ongoing Test vs England in Rajkot due to family emergency.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed late on Friday that Ravichandran Ashwin has withdrawn from the ongoing third Test against England with immediate effect due to a family medical emergency.

The statement further said: “In these challenging times, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the team fully supports Ashwin.

“The BCCI extends its heartfelt support to the champion cricketer and his family. The health and well-being of the players and their loved ones are of utmost importance. The Board requests respect for the privacy of Ashwin and his family as they navigate through this challenging time.

“The Board and the team will continue to provide any necessary assistance to Ashwin and will keep the lines of communication open to offer support as needed. Team India appreciates the understanding and empathy of the fans and media during this sensitive period.”

Ashwin celebrated his 500th wicket in Test cricket on Day 2 with the scalp of Zak Crawley. He became the ninth bowler in Test history to surpass the 500-wicket milestone and is the only Indian bowler to achieve this feat after Anil Kumble.
