Ashley Giles started out as a fast bowler but later took up slow left-arm spin. He had a rather quick arm action for a spinner but generated a lot of bounce due to his height. 'Gilo' made his debut for Warwickshire in 1993 but couldn’t manage to break into the ODI side until May 1997, following some good performances in the domestic circuit in 1996. Once he made it to the English national side, Giles had a start-stop ODI career as he played only a handful of matches until 2002. He was although, a regular in the Test side and had a memorable tour of the sub-continent in 2000-2001 season bagging 25 wickets in 6 matches. He tormented the likes of Inzamam-ul-Haq with his sharp spinning deliveries. But, a niggling Achilles injury forced him to stay out of the Ashes. He came back strongly against India to bag 5 wickets in the Ahmedabad Test.
