Sunday, 25 December 2016

Even after winning the ICC Cricketer of the Year and the ICC Test Cricketer of the Year awards on Thursday, Ravichandran Ashwin is making news for all the wrong reasons. The Indian cricket team off-spinner has hurt ODI skipper MS Dhoni’s fans by not mentioning the former Test captain in his thank you speech.

Ashwin was MS Dhoni’s lead spinner for a considerable period of time in the Indian team after making his Test debut in 2011 under Dhoni’s captaincy. Ashwin was also part of Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings bowling attack till the IPL team was suspended in 2014 on charges of betting and match fixing. They also played together for Rising Pune Supergiants in the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
