Profile

M Ashwin, a legbreak bowler, finished the 2015-16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy as Tamil Nadu's second-highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets, and a month later acquired a contract with Rising Pune Supergiants for INR 4.5 crores. Although he has played just three first-class matches, his economy rate of 5.52 in the T20 tournament went a long way in securing him a spot with the new franchise. Ashwin's early years were spent at the cricket academy run by CS Suresh Kumar, the former Tamil Nadu batsman, before making the transition to the senior side on the back of strong performances for the state's Under-23s side. Ashwin has been a regular feature over the years as a net bowler for Chennai Super Kings.
