Ravichandran Ashwin is one of the best spinners in world cricket. In his short career so far, Ashwin holds many records and has impressed one and all with his variations and intelligence to outfox his opponents.
In Test cricket, Ashwin is the leader of India’s bowling attack and specially on spin-friendly pitches in India and the sub-continet. In the ongoing series against New Zealand, Ashwin took 4 wickets in the first innings of the first Test in Kanpur. Ashwin showed great skills and control as it wasn’t an easy going until tea break of day 2, as Kane Williamson and Tom Latham batted brilliantly and countered India’s spin attack like pros.
But as the cracks started opening up, Ashwin, in partnership with Ravindra Jadeja, got better off Kiwi batsmen more often than not. Watch Ravichandran’s 4 wickets against New Zealand here:
