Ravichandran Ashwin Reveals His Opinion On Making A Comeback To Chennai Super Kings
If there could be any void left in the heart of the Chennai Super Kings’ fans, it would be the absence of their star Ravichandran Ashwin in the side. He has been their strength for quite a few seasons but the termination of the team from IPL for 2 years never helped him in making a comeback to the team, which has got huge fanbase across the world.
Ravichandran Ashwin was a massive player for Chennai Super Kings:
Though he got only a couple of games in 2009, Ravichandran Ashwin has shot to fame with his stunning performance for Chennai Super Kings. Under MS Dhoni’s captaincy, the ‘mystery spinner’ was summoned to bowl with the new ball and the youngster didn’t disappoint his skipper as he finished with 13 wickets at a miserly economy rate of 6.10.
The auction fight for him between CSK and RCB in the following year showed his class, in which, Chennai Super Kings had the last laugh. Ashwin scalped 20 wickets (economy: 6.15, average: 19.40) and he went onto win back-to-back titles for CSK (2010 and 2011). An integral member of the Super Kings set-up, he was retained by the franchise ahead of the 2014 season.Ravichandran Ashwin (Credits – IPL)
Following the 2-year-suspension for CSK, Ashwin was picked by Rising Pune Supergiants at the 2016 IPL Player Draft. After having an ordinary outing in 2016, Ashwin was ruled out of the following season due to sports hernia injury. Ashwin had to go under the hammer in 2018 and Kings XI Punjab bought him for Rs 7.6 crore and named him the captain.
Under Ashwin’s leadership, KXIP played well in the first half of the past two seasons before losing steam in the second half. They finished seventh in 2018 and sixth in 2019.
