Ashwin averages 19.93 against left-handers and 31.50 against right-handers. In SA, Eng, NZ & Aus he averages 22.75 against left-handers and 97.92 against right-handers.

His avg against right handers is truly Bradmanesque.

I guess it was mainly Steve Smith who stood between him and a stellar performance in Australia.

Also what people didn't read in that stat is his record against left-handers. The Australian top 6 has 4 left-handers.

its for most off spinners.  they do struggle against righties until you make use of rough which Ashwin struggle with.

Didn't say it isn't. My point is you need to look further into the stats when you pick them out. A batting line-up that is heavy on left-handers is clearly at a disadvantage against Ashwin compared to Australian teams that he's played against (and had a poor record against) in the past.

I did mention in the match thread OP that Ash is pretty good against lefties even in SENA, mainly bowling from around the wicket. He really struggles against the righties in SENA when he has to bowl over the wicket and outside the off stump. With so many lefties in Aus top 6, Ash was the right pick, at least for the first test.

True but in Ash's case the difference is vast, much more than other off spinners.
