Ravichandran Ashwin was surprisingly left out of India's playing eleven in the series opener at Trent Bridge, but the off-spinner is in high spirits. In a video posted by BCCI, he said the atmosphere in the camp is jovial and it is his firm belief that this team could go on to achieve magnanimous success on the tour. Ashwin could be back into the fold for the second Test at Lord's, given Shardul Thakur has reportedly pulled a hamstring.
