Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin is a star player in every department. Although, he is a full-time off-spin bowler, what he did in this year’s IPL so far is just exceptional. He scored as many as 190 runs in 11 games while batting at different batting positions, and he took 11 wickets also and every time just when the team required. In the last league of RR, when CSK bowlers were dismissed every major batter was gone with 39 runs still left to win in 22 balls. Ashwin, who came at no.5 played a sensible yet quick knock of unbeaten 40 in 23 to help RR book the second spot into the playoffs.
