Ravichandran Ashwin reunites with Chennai Super Kings ahead of IPL Mega Auction

Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin, the ace off-spinner, has rejoined India Cements Group, marking a significant development in the Indian Premier League (IPL) landscape. Ashwin will play an all-encompassing role in Superking Ventures, a part of Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Ravichandran Ashwin’s IPL stint with Superkings

Ashwin, who is 37 years old, was with India Cements until 2016 and played for CSK from 2008 to 2015. His return to India Cements marks a significant shift in his IPL journey. Ashwin will play a key role in Superking Ventures. He will be responsible for guiding the centre and the Super Kings academies.

Ashwin’s commitment to the game at any level, be it for India, Tamil Nadu, or even the club, is well known. He will be a great person to guide the centre and nurture the young talents coming through

CSK’s High-Performance centre is located in Navalur, on the outskirts of Chennai. The centre’s ground is ready and other infrastructure is being built. CSK even held a practice session at the venue during the IPL and the venue will also host TNCA first-division matches this year.

Following the move, there will be heightened expectations on whether the off-spinner could don the yellow jersey again. But with the IPL set to have a mega auction for 2025 with retentions and no trade window before that, it won’t be straightforward for CSK to get Ashwin back.
