    It's possible that his reverse swing ability has come to the fore once they started plaing in India more often. Either way, he seems more confident and consistently takes wickets

    I'm more interested in his numbers to be honest. Btw Dhoni cant teach him reverse swing. Neither can Kohli.

    Ashwin should shorten his length a touch and he could get the edge.

    There is no need for the slingy action even though he is accurate with it.

    Yes. So you gonna conclude Yadav was better under Dhoni?

    By the way, he started off his career in India in a good way. Then injury. Lost focus. And now he is getting better even though statistically he is rubbish.

    I'm not concluding anything mate. Just curious.

    Maybe he has had more missed edges and dropped catches under Kohli which makes his average look so bad. Deserves a long rope.

    We should do a bowler by bowler analysis under the two.

    That is also true but its a fine line.

    The ball ain't beating the bat much now barring the odd one. I don't know...post lunch it may do.

    Except in Rajkot, don't think he missed a lot of wickets.

    Consistency wise, Yadav has been bad under Kohli too but in several areas he has improved and his crucial wickets have helped. He still has to get consistent.

    @sensible-indian-fan my point about the deep fielder. Smith on 0. Last over of the session. Taps it to long on. Make them earn those fielders.

    Here I agree with you.

    Earlier they weren't taking easy singles. And Renshaw did loft Jaddu for a six.

    Sif says he's not had consistency while you say he's had while both of you agree that he's done well under Kohli. Not sure who's more correct.

    Numbers say he's been atrocious at home where Indian pace bowlers bowl much better than abroad.

    Ashwin and Jaddu's performance under Dhoni and Kohli is a pointless exercise.

    Under Dhoni, Ashwin had the horror show in 2012. Not Dhoni's fault.
    Under Kohli, both got SA pitches to boost stats.

    What you can see is the quality of bowling which is higher under Kohli than Dhoni cos the spinners matured.

    This has got nothing to do with either Dhoni or Kohli.

    The area where it actually makes a difference is pacers.

    Consistency is about taking wickets regularly.

    Yadav has looked good many a times but hasn't quite done enough to get the wickets. Hence his bad average but good reputation.

    His economy rates have dropped under Kohli though.

    Consistency in line and length. He used to be a spray gun but seems to be more focussed now. His economy rate has gone down too

    Ok looks like we talked about consistency in different terms.

    I completely agree with you about Yadav.

    Better line and lengths....but hasn't done enough to get the wickets hence the bad average.

    That's mostly down to ashwin improving as a bowler. Also he toured the difficult away places for spinners under dhoni

    Maybe and pls correct me if I'm wrong but that could be because he's bowled more in India and not in overseas places especially like Australia where Warner smashes you all around the park.

    His economy in India is 3.1 and under Kohli 3.3.

    We should discard the Away stats.

    At home, Ashwin has been better bowler under Kohli as he has matured and also the captain is of attacking mindset

    For Jadeja, there hasn't been much change playing at home under two different captains

    Pitches are a factor. There is absolutely no movement on those bland AUS pitches. But still you could contain the batsmen like Hazelwood had done with better line and length. Yadav was atrocious in that series. Dhoni has publicly critisized Yadav for his indiscipline with the ball and favored slower pacers who could bowl in the channel. Kohli on the other hand likes pace and favored Yadav

    What you can see is the quality of bowling which is higher under Kohli than Dhoni cos the spinners matured.

    This has got nothing to do with either Dhoni or Kohli.

    The area where it actually makes a difference is pacers.
    I have watch last 45 mins of the match, we don't get that kind of wicket in last 45 mins of day 5, and this is first session.They are bowling 15 test in a row on such wickets, no wonder stats look good. Ashwin is good bowler no doubt but wickets are too good. Even 82-0 and no wicket in 25 overs, you know can get 3/4 in next 5 overs, batsmen are never comfortable...English and Auses have made same mistake, they did not pick front line spinners, you need one, last time when English picked Swann and Monty they won series...

    His bowling in Loi has come down a bit since the crack down, his action looks better now, less straightening than before. But now in IPL and odi he is not the same threat as 3/4 years ago when Narin and Ashwin were king in ipl. I remember 14/16 KKR wins in a row including championship game.

    Ironically Ashwin's performance has gone upwards post the crackdown while a magical spinner performed the best magic trick if his career. He disappeared forever.

    Let's see what he does in west first, many Pakistani fans were upbeat about Yasir, but he failed miserably in down under...Anderson is/was also very good in wet and green summer of England, but that's about it.

    I still maintain Sawann was better off spinner than Ashwin...Even in some English test he was not that stealer in first innings...

    His LOI performance has gone down pair crack down, and test has not been tested beyond rank turners... let's talk next year this time when India will circle around the world, maybe I am clue less and he is next to Bradman 😱😱😱

    He was never that good outside of Asia/ WI. Any crackdown has nothing to do with it.

    I have given explanations for it many times and I can't go through the efforts again.

    Every single sentence of your post is factually wrong brother (be it reg spin vs results, action, his performances in LOI, etc).

    Spin does not automatically mean its easy to bowl.

    Just check average of English spinners on non turners in Vizag and Mohali and then compare it to their averages in Mumbai where ball turned from day 1. Indian spinners averaged very well in those non turners too.

    How is that possible? Hint: True bounce.

    If you think Pak (or any other) spinners are gonna run through batting lineups on turning true bounce pitches in first innings, then you can't be more mistaken.

    I will let someone else who has read my posts explain it cos I have done it way way way too many times on PP.

    This pitch is bad one for Day 1. However, I'm pretty sure you haven't watched Ind vs NZ or Eng. The pitches never turned this much. Infact very high scores were made by both teams in the first innings. Sure, there is a bit of turn but credit goes to Indian spinners and that's the beauty and uniqueness of Sub continent cricket.
