Ravichandran Ashwin in #AskAshwinContest on Twitter answered a few questions posted by his fans. One fan asked him about his all time international cricket XI, during the campaign run by Sportsstar. Ashwin obliged to it and named the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara and Inzamam ul Haq among his all time XI. It also featured other legends like Shane Warne, Wasim Akram and Glenn McGrath. Ashwin’s altime XI looks like this: Sachin Tendulkar, Adam Gilchrist, Jacques Kallis, Brian Lara, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Steve Waugh, Michael Bevan, Lance Klusener, Shane Warne, Wasim Akram and Glenn Mcgrath. Ashwin is currently playing for Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016. READ: VIDEO: MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli troll Ravichandran Ashwin!

Ashwin started off his replay jovially by stating that the answer may lead to controversies, but he went ahead with it anyway. Ashwin will play for RPS as they prepare to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore later on Friday. Both teams are coming off the back of back-to-back defeats and will be eager to win this match to end their losing streak.

During his interaction on Twitter, he also said that Anil Kumble is his favourite spinner. Ashwin is one of India’s most trusted spinner in the last few years in all formats for India. He has been MS Dhoni’s go to bowler under pressure situations and has more often than not delivered for his team. Ashwin is also a handy batsman lower down the order and has a couple of Test centuries to his credit. Both Ashwin and Dhoni were part of the now banned IPL outfit Chennai Super Kings (CSK), where they won the title twice.
