Yes and yes. In short, Ashwin and Ojha are dumb ****s. Particularly Ashwin.
India needed quick runs to force a result. England spread the field whenever Ashwin was on strike. Ashwin was not taking the singles. However instead of bringing in the field for the 5th and 6th ball, as they didn't care about how long India batted or whether they got 1 single every over, they kept the field spread. Ashwin was too dumb to innovate and just sat there surprised, and kept taking a single, i.e India were going at 1 rpo. England were quite happy seeing India do this and didn't really need, and possibly want, a wicket to fall.
