India’s leading spinner Ravichandran Ashwin celebrated his 32nd birthday on Monday. He has become the most secure name as a spinner in the Indian squad after Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.
Initially, Ashwin was considered as a T20 bowler for his different style of bowling and batting dependency in the shortest format of the game. But, with his consistent all-round performance, he managed to secure his spot in all formats of the game.
Ravi Ashwin is the fastest Indian to reach 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 wicket mark in Test cricket.
The social media was also filled with the messages for Ashwin on his birthday and everyone was reminiscing his contribution to Indian cricket so far.
Here’s how the cricket fraternity wished Ravichandran Ashwin:
