Expect pitch to slow down more, says R Ashwin


The lanky off-spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin, shut up his critics on Friday with a splendid exhibition of classical spin bowling that left the Australians gasping in their first innings. Ashwin, who sent down as many as 33 overs, ended the day with figures of 3/50. Ashwin was particularly effective against left-handers Harris, Marsh and Khawaja.
