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 four Test hundreds to his name and an ODI top-score of 65.
