Ashton Agar, a cricketer for Australia, is returning home to represent Western Australia in the Marsh Cup and the Sheffield Shield. The 18-person Australian team, which is currently touring India for the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023, included Ashton Agar.
Unfortunately, Todd Murphy and Matt Kuhnemann were chosen for the first and second Test matches, respectively, and Ashton Agar was given no opportunity to play. Adam Gilchrist similarly described Agar’s treatment as “insulting” after being so unnoticed.
Australia’s nightmares about the subcontinent continue
It should be noted that Ashton Agar is one of many Australian players who have recently boarded a plane to return home. Due to his recuperation from an Achilles injury, Josh Hazlewood first returned, whileDue to an elbow fracture, David Warner has been told he cannot play in the remaining games of the series. Moreover, captain Pat Cummins has left for home owing to health concerns for family members, however it is expected that he will return before the third Test starts.
Agar, on the other hand, is scheduled to return to Australia fully healthy and prepared to play. Despite being one of the four spinners chosen for the Test series in India, he received zero attention in the first two matches. The Australian management made the decision to dismiss the 29-year-old from the squad as the domestic season in that country developed so that he may play for his home side starting on March 2, 2023.
Much criticism has been directed towards the Australian management.owing of their terrible player management and bad team selection. Even Adam Gilchrist had criticised the team for not treating Ashton Agar with respect and for utterly wasting his skill by just benching him and hunting for replacements.
