Profile

R Ashwin made a strong start to his international career, becoming the fastest Indian bowler to 100 Test wickets. Ashwin also has two Test centuries and more than 1,000 runs to his name, and is an elegant batsman who provides the much needed connect between two halves of India’s batting unit. Ashwin first made an impact in his debut series at home against West Indies in 2011 when he replaced Harbhajan Singh. Two Man of the Match awards in three Tests, and the engineer-turned-cricketer has never looked back. He hasn’t always commanded a spot in the starting XI in Test matches overseas, but he has provided enough indications that he is a long-term investment. Before his international career, his performances for Chennai Super Kings, especially during Power Plays, pitchforked him into prominence. Forced to think on his feet, Ashwin first developed and then mastered the ‘carrom’ ball, a variation that continues to bring him rewards across all formats of the game.
