Ravichandran Ashwin Profile

Ravichandran Ashwin has taken spin bowling to another level. India needed a quality spinner in the wake of Anil Kumble’s retirement and Harbhajan Singh’s dip in form and while Ashwin didn’t get instant success, over a period of time he has developed into a top-class offspinner.


Early in 2017, Ashwin surpassed Aussie legend Dennis Lillee by becoming the fastest player to reach 250 wickets (in 45 Tests). Since the away series against Sri Lanka in 2015, the Tamil Nadu bowler has shown a great upturn in form. He has followed up his 21 wickets in that three-game series with 31 wickets against South Africa (home), 17 wickets against West Indies (away), 27 wickets against New Zealand (home) and 28 wickets against England (home), six wickets against Bangladesh in a one-off Test (home) and 21 wickets against Australia (home), playing a major role in these series wins.


Besides being a great bowler, Ashwin is very effective as a batsman and finished 2016 as the No.1 Test all-rounder in the ICC rankings before being toppled by Shakib Al Hasan in March 2017. Often with centuries and half-centuries, especially in Tests, he has spoiled many an opposition team’s party. India’s spin future is in great hands with Ashwin around!
