Ashwin to lead KXIP in IPL 2018

Ravi Ashwin was named ahead of the likes of Yuvraj Singh and David Miller to skipper the Kings XI Punjab side in the upcoming season of IPL. The announcement was made public by Virender Sehwag during a live session on Facebook.

Ashwin, since his foray in the league, donned the yellow outfit of Chennai Super Kings. The veteran offie was with the southpaws till 2015, before the franchise got served with a 2-year ban. In those two seasons, Ashwin plied his trade for the Rising Pune Supergiant. They were one of the two interim franchises for the past two season as CSK along with Rajasthan Royals were banned for their involvement in spot-fixing.

Thus, Ashwin looks all charged up to take on his new role. Also, as part of his preparations, the witty off-spinner is keen to enrich his repertoire of variations. And in a bid to do so, he is practicing leg spin as an added option to unleash it when necessary.
