R Ashwin made his name through his intelligent bowling in the IPL for the Chennai Super Kings. With Harbhajan Singh fading out as a wicket taking bowler, the Indian Selectors looked up to this Tamil Nadu off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin who tweaks the ball pretty well.
Ashwin made his international debut in 2010 and had a successful run in the sub-continent although his temptation to bowl the carrom ball frequently caused his downfall at times. This 6 ft 2 inch tall off-spinner does bat superbly and has all the qualities of a specialist batsman. At times, Ashwin reminds us of VVS Laxman with his sweet timing and wristy flicks.
On the personal front, R Ashwin married Prithi Narayan in 2011. His wife Preethi Narayan happens to be Ashwin’s childhood friend. Ravichandran Ashwin is an Engineering Graduate in Information Technology.
This tall and slightly heavy looking off-spinner coming from Tamil Nadu is without any doubts a champion bowler on home soil. However, Ravichandran Ashwin has struggled to take wickets outside the sub-continent. But such has been the state of affairs with Indian spinners of the modern era whether it has been the great Anil Kumble or R Ashwin’s predecessor Harbhajan Singh.
Ravichandran Ashwin made it to the Indian team four years after his first-class debut for Tamil Nadu in 2006. With Harbhajan Singh fading out, Ashwin grabbed his opportunities taking bagful of wickets in home series while showing that he was as useful as his predecessor was as a late order batsman.
Being a tall guy, Ashwin’s strength is to extract the extra bounce from the pitch and in general is considered as a decent tweaker of the cricket ball. However, he has been found wanting of late leaving his place in the Indian team under question. But he has been a steady bowler for his Captain in all formats of the game although he has this habit of letting off the pressure on the batsmen with his overuse of the carrom ball.
It was the Indian Premier League which became the launchpad for Ashwin’s international career. R Ashwin has been playing for the Chennai Super Kings where his skills been closely watched by the present Team India Captain MS Dhoni.
Ashwin may not be the world-class bowler in all conditions, but it is his batting that has really impressed everyone especially in Test cricket. Whenever R Ashwin bats, he reminds most people of VVS Laxman with a similar lazy looking stance, wristy strokeplay and sweet timing of the cricket ball.
