When asked about the role of a captain and the likely contest between Dhoni and his South African counterpart Graeme Smith, Ashwin said that the Indian captain liked to keep things simple.
“Culturally both countries are very different and that’s where you can expect a difference. With Dhoni, he will keep things very simple. That’s been the hallmark of his captaincy. He will look to lead from the front,” he said.
“Any opportunity that is provided he will look to lead from the front. In terms of leadership, it is very much about setting the tone here in Johannesburg. A captain can be only as good as his team. So how he sets the tone in Johannesburg is going to be very vital,” Ashwin concluded.
