Ravichandran Ashwin, regarded as one of the best spinners in modern cricket. Has been a mainstay of India’s Test team but has struggled to cement a spot in the white-ball squads since 2017. The veteran was a member of India’s disastrous T20 World Cup campaign last year. He will be hoping to use his performance in the IPL 2022 to earn a spot in this year’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
The 35-year-old was release by the DC following the IPL 2021 season and purchase by the RR in the mega auction for Rs 5 crore. He made his IPL debut with Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and his performances under MS Dhoni earned him a spot in India’s ICC World Cup-winning squad in 2011.
“Dhoni Knew How To Use Ashwin” : Parthiv Patel on Spinners’ IPL Performance
Ashwin was a force to be reckoned with in the IPL, and he played for CSK until the team suspend for two years. He has since represented the Rising Pune Supergiant, the Punjab Kings (PBKS), and the Delhi Capitals (DC).
While Ashwin has managed to stay among the wickets in the IPL, his performances have never been the same as they were when he was playing for CSK. He took 90 wickets in 97 matches for CSK, with an economy rate of 6.46. He had 25 dismissals in 28 games for Punjab, with an economy rate of 7.67. Meanwhile, for DC, he took 20 wickets in 28 games at a 7.55 economy rate. He also took 10 wickets in 14 matches for Pune, with an economy rate of 7.25.
Former India cricketer Parthiv Patel explained Ashwin’s slump in figures on Cricbuzz and also stated that MS Dhoni knew how to use the bowler in CSK.
“First and foremost, it is determined by the pitch used. In Chennai, 140 or 150 is a winning score, and spin is common. As a result, his numbers with Chennai are higher. The captain also makes a difference. MS Dhoni knew when and where to use R Ashwin. He only made Ashwin use the new ball in 2010. He made good use of him and received assistance from the wicket “, according to the former India wicketkeeper.
“These figures aren’t all that bad. He has even made a comeback for India “, he went on to say.
RR and Ashwin have already started their IPL 2022 campaign and are currently leading the table. In their season opener, they defeated SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 61 runs, despite Ashwin failing to take a wicket in four overs.
