About Ravichandran Ashwin (from Wikipedia Page)

Ravichandran Ashwin is an Indian international cricketer. An all-rounder who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm off break, Ashwin plays for Tamil Nadu in domestic cricket and Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League.

He is the fastest Indian bowler (also in some records the joint-fastest in the world) to reach the 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350 and 400 wicket mark in Test cricket in terms of number of innings.

In 2016, he became the third Indian to win the ICC Cricketer of the Year award.

Having achieved little success as an opening batsman at junior-level cricket, Ashwin dropped down the order and turned into an off-break bowler.

He made his first-class debut for Tamil Nadu in December 2006 and captained the team the following season. But it was not until the 2010 Indian Premier League in which he played for the Chennai Super Kings, that he came into the limelight with his economical bowling and earned his maiden international call-up in the limited-overs formats in June 2010.

He was the leading wicket-taker and player of the tournament of the 2010 Champions League Twenty20 in South Africa.

He was also part of the Indian squad that won the 2011 Cricket World Cup. Later that year, he made his Test debut against West Indies and became the seventh Indian to take a five-wicket haul on Test debut.

He took two five-wicket hauls and scored a century in that series and won the player of the series award.
