Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had a series to remember ‘Down Under’. The veteran bowling sensation culled the roots of Australia’s batting attack. Adding to that, the 34-year-old displayed a heroic batting stint in the third Test at Sydney to halt the Baggy Greens for a draw. Ashwin was recently named in India’s 18-member squad for their upcoming four-match Test series against England, starting on February 5th.
