After dominating 2016, India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin looks forward to 2017 and the first series he has in his sight is the One-Day International (ODI) series against England. But with the New Year, comes new challenges. Ashwin will now have to adjust to Virat Kohli’s way of captaincy even in the limited-overs after he was handed over the reins, following MS Dhoni’s sudden resignation from the post. Ashwin however acknowledges that Dhoni too will have a major part to play – now solely as a wicketkeeper.

In the five-match Test series, Ashwin tormented the English batsmen, picking up 28 wickets at 30.25. He also scored 306 runs with the bat at 43.71, which included as many as four fifties.
