India’s red ball spin wizard Ravichandran Ashwin recently talked about his time in England where he represented Worcestershire.
Ashwin revealed that the period helped him evolve as a player. The 31-year old managed to scalp 20 wickets in 4 games with the side at an average of 29.15. Moreover, the Kings XI Punjab skipper showcased his skill with the bat having averaged at 42.80.
Ashwin also gave his thoughts on the crucial upcoming tour to England and is positive about having a good time in the whites for India. He said:
“I know what to expect in England, in terms of weather and pitches. Worcester’s home ground is New Road, which is a very difficult track to bowl on. I enjoyed my cricket there. I also bowled a lot with the Duke ball during my stint. At this point in time, it’s not as difficult as bowling with the SG ball. So I think it should be fine,”.
The emergence of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has plummeted Ashwin’s chances of getting into the limited overs side, But, his skill and experience make him a vital cog in the longer formats.
