Off-spinner R Ashwin had a forgettable outing on day three of the Southampton Test as he failed to put pressure on opposition batsmen and bag wickets. But teammate Cheteshwar Pujara came out in Ashwin's support and said that the spinner bowled well throughout the day without much success. He felt that Ashwin bowled good lines without much purchase from the wicket. On the other hand, Jos Buttler commented on his partnership with Ben Stokes that changed the complexion of the match. He also threw light on the tricky period when Ashwin bowled in the rough outside the off stump.
