“All-time nice’ is the very best reward and acknowledgment given to a cricketer. Cricketers like Don Bradman, Sobers, Gavaskar, Tendulkar, Virat, and so on are all-time greats in my guide. With due respect, Ashwin is just not fairly there as an all-time nice but. #AllTimeGreatExplained,” tweeted Manjrekar on Sunday.

Ashwin has taken 409 wickets in 78 Tests at a mean of 24.69, together with 30 5-wicket hauls and 7 10-wicket hauls. He can also be India’s fourth-highest wicket-taker in the longest format.
Earlier, Manjrekar had stated that he has a downside with folks terming Ashwin as one of the best spinner going round as he doesn’t have sufficient 5-wicket hauls outdoors India.
“One basic problem I have with Ashwin is that when you look at SENA countries, places where Indians find themselves outside their comfort zone, it’s amazing to see that he doesn’t have a single five-wicket haul. Not one five-wicket haul in all these countries,” stated Manjrekar on ESPNcricinfo’s program ‘Run Order’.
“The different factor – you speak about him working by way of sides on Indian pitches, when pitches are suited to his sort of bowling. But in the final 4 years, Ravindra Jadeja has matched him with wicket-taking means all through a collection. So, Ashwin is just not a man who soars above the others. And curiously, in the final collection in opposition to England, Axar Patel bought extra wickets than Ashwin on related pitches. That is my downside with accepting Ashwin as an all-time nice,” he added.
Former Australia skipper Ian Chappell was fast to level out how Ashwin is like former West Indies legend Joel Garner and never taking sufficient 5-wicket hauls doesn’t matter as India has a high quality assault.
“I would like to make a couple of points there, if you look at Joel Garner, I mean how many five-wicket hauls Joel Garner has? Not many, when you consider how good he was and his record. And why, because he was performing with three other very, very fine players. And I think, particularly of late, I find that the Indian attack has been so strong that the wickets are being shared around more,” stated Chappell on the identical programme.
“And the other point I would make is because of Ashwin’s reputation I think the England players probably concentrated more on keeping Ashwin out and with Axar Patel, well, let’s be blunt about it, they didn’t have a bloody clue,” he added.
