Prithi Narayanan reveals the extent of Ashwin’s back ache going into the fifth day of the SCG Test

R Ashwin was crawling on the floor in pain, and unable to get up or bend, on the morning of the fifth day of the Sydney Test. His wife Prithi Narayanan, writing in the Indian Express, said she had never seen him like this.

Ashwin ended the day on an unbeaten 128-ball 39 and, with Hanuma Vihari, put on an unbroken stand of 62 off 259 balls to help India save the Test. But he later revealed he had tweaked his back the previous evening and is a doubt for the final Test at the Gabba, which starts on Friday.

In the article, Prithi, who was in the same hotel with their two daughters, revealed the extent of his pain. “He has a high threshold for it, but I had never seen him like this,” she wrote. “He was crawling on the floor. He couldn’t get up or bend down. I couldn’t imagine how he was going to play…As he was about to leave, he said, ‘I have to play. I have to get this done’.”
