Ravichandran Ashwin burst onto the scene with his smart and street-smart exploits in the shorter form of the game in the IPL, but since his Test debut against West Indies in 2011, Ashwin has made it a habit to pick up wickets, especially in dry and dusty conditions that support turn. He has made a name for himself in the shorter formats of the game, more so in T20 cricket where his accuracy and shrewdness has made him a dependable bowler. He has managed to fill in the boots of Harbhajan Singh and then some, and has become India's premier bowler in the subcontinent.
IPL - Through the years

A rookie from Tamil Nadu, Ravichandran Ashwin, was picked by his home franchise - Chennai Super Kings - in 2009, where he played just two matches. The following season (2010) saw him rise to fame - courtesy his 'sodukku ball' a.k.a. carrom ball. 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. Despite heavy competition from Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Super Kings managed to re-buy him for the 2011 season and the offie proved his worth. 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.

While 2014 saw him lose his form a bit, Ashwin came back strongly in the following season. Although he picked just 10 wickets in 16 games during the 2015 season, his economy rate was 5.84, which is incredible in T20s. 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. Ashwin has never been afraid to experiment new things on a cricket field. He showed his astuteness in his maiden stint as IPL captain, but at times tried to be too cheeky. Following the omission from white-ball internationals, Ashwin will be keen to prove a point in IPL 2019 as KXIP eye a maiden IPL title.
