Ravichandran Ashwin says he ‘prides in being a fierce competitor’. Considering the challenge that the veteran of 111 ODIs and 65 Tests has faced from the younger Indian spin brigade in recent times, he has to be competitive to stay in the race.
The 32-year-old Ashwin was last seen in ODI colours in June 2017 and has not made it to the World Cup squad despite being a top choice for Tests. In the IPL, however, he has led Kings XI Punjab from the front, being their top bowler with 14 wickets in 12 matches and an economy rate of 7.21.
Whether or not Ashwin’s KXIP reaches the play-offs depends a lot on the results of the last two league games. Ahead of the crucial fixtures, Ashwin talks to Hindustan Times on his bowling, his views on wrist-spin, as well as tackling disappointments as captain.
Today in his tweey the captain said that his favourite moment in cricket is the moment when he took 22 wickets in a test series in which he also scored his maiden century. He also asked his followers to share about the same with the hashtag #YeGamehaiMahaan
His tweet read as “While I work hard on my bowling skills, I can’t forget the match where I scored my 1st century & took 22 wickets in the same Test series. Which is your #YeGamehaiMahaan moment from cricket?”

To our surprise a Kollywood comedy actor replied to it by sharing his favourite cricketing moment. He is none other than Actor sathish who is known for films like Ethir Neechal and Kaththi. He said that he scored 18 runs in 6 balls in Chepauk ground by sharing a couple of picture of him.

Sathish is one of the ardent follower of cricket and fan of MS Dhoni. The moment he shared would be most probably in the Celebrity Cricket League which is being held between the film industries across India.
Ashwin’s Punjab team is currently alive in the tournament of IPL with 10 points. Th team is also competing Kolkata Knight Riders tonight. KKR won the toss, and skipper Dinesh Karthik opts to bowl first against his Tamilnadu teammate Ravichandran Ashwin.
