Bio

Ravichandran Ashwin may appear quiet and unassuming but this off-spinner does plenty of damage with a cricket ball.

An impressive 2010 Indian Premier League season for the Chennai Super Kings brought Ashwin into the sights of Indian selectors and he made his one-day international debut in June 2010 against Sri Lanka.

His Test debut came against West Indies in 2011 and Ashwin has since secured a place as India’s spinner of choice across all three formats. He causes plenty of trouble for batsmen with his off-spin and variations, particularly with his carrom ball.

Ashwin is also capable of inflicting damage with the bat and was an opening batsman before he took up off-spin. The proof is in his record – he has two Test hundreds to his name and an ODI top-score of 65.

Ashwin was a member of India’s winning ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 squad but played second fiddle to Harbhajan Singh at the tournament. He will be eager to make his mark on the championship this time around.
