It was as if the inexperienced team had broken Australia’s pride. Many people know its story. But something happened to Ashwin at this time, which very few people know. This was stated by Ashwin at a recent cricket show.

Ashwin related the story on the show. “My wife knows very well how difficult it is to travel,” he said. He has been doing this for the last 10 years. When we arrived in Brisbane, we were locked in a hotel room. We were told we could not go out. Ten minutes later, I heard some crying. It wasn’t the sound of my kids crying. I went and saw my wife crying. She can’t control her emotions. “
Wife starts crying because of quarantine: Ashwin
Ashwin added, “When I asked my wife why she was crying, she said, ‘I don’t know what’s going on. But I can no longer stay in the hotel room. You are going out for practice and able to breathe in the open air. But I have to stay in this room. It’s really inhumane. I can’t stand it anymore. “
‘Quit playing international cricket’
Ashwin also said on the show how much sacrifice players have to accept to play international cricket. They have to give up a lot.
The off-spinner said, “There is no doubt that cricketers are making money. But you also have to understand that it is a career that is very short. People accept a lot of sacrifices because of sports. I have given up a lot of family responsibilities because of this sport. I am the only son in the family. I have not celebrated Diwali or Pongal at home for the last 27 years. My parents had covid and were in the hospital six months ago. I haven’t seen him in seven months. Yes, it is true that passion for cricket speaks volumes in India. There is no greater feeling than this. But empathy is something we can all do well.
