India offspinner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ravichandran-ashwin/news/">Ravichandran Ashwin</a> has signed up with Yorkshire Cricket Club for the majority of 2020 English county season. Yorkshire thus becomes Ashwin's third different county club having earlier represented Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire. <p></p> <p></p>The 33-year-old India Test mainstay will will play a minimum of eight county championship matches for the White Rose after completing his IPL commitments in which he will be turning out for Delhi Capitals. <p></p> <p></p>"I'm thrilled to be joining Yorkshire, a club with a wonderful history and a fantastic fan base," Ashwin said in a statement. "I think our team looks extremely talented with some superb pace bowlers and exciting batsmen," Ashwin told the club's website. Headingley has always been a fantastic venue to play at. People speak about the overhead conditions playing a big part so let's hope for plenty of sun." <p></p> <p></p>Ashwin, a spin bowling allrounder, hopes to contribute both with the bat and ball for Yorkshire, a club for which Sachin Tendulkar played during the early part of his international career. <p></p> <p></p>"I love playing First-Class cricket and have enjoyed my two previous spells with Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire. My role will be to score runs and take wickets but it will be a collective effort if we are to win the title," Ashwin said. <p></p> <p></p>He added, "I feel I have been consistent over a long period of time which has helped my success for India. I know a lot about Yorkshire and to follow in the footsteps of Sachin, who played for the county many years ago is a wonderful feeling for me."
