Five reasons why Ashwin is key to India’s Success in Sri Lanka


3. Ashwin can BAT :
Ashwin as a BatsmanYes you heard that right!! Ashwin can bat and bat really well. Actually when Ashwin is batting I sometimes mistake him for some proper batsman batting such good is his batting technique. Ashwin has played 25 test matches till now and averages 36 with the bat which is really impressive for a player who is mainly selected for his bowling in the side. Adding to this Ravi Ashwin has amassed two hundreds and four fifties till now, both of his hundreds have come against West Indies. Ashwin’s highest test score is 124 followed by 103. Numbers don’t lie and the above numbers show that Ashwin actually could come in very handy with the bat if the top and middle order collapses.
