India's leading off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has displayed sublime form in the ICC World Twenty20. Using his deceptive carrom ball to perfection, along with his regular off-spinning delivery and other variations, he has been Mahendra Singh Dhoni's go-to man in the spin-friendly wickets in Bangladesh.
Reaching personal milestones and breaking records in the tournament so far, Ashwin has become the first Indian bowler to bag 10 wickets -- at an average of 9.50 -- in five matches for India at the World Twenty20.
Such has been his good form that Ashwin recorded his top two bowling figures in T20Is in the tournament. In the Group 2 match against Australia, Ashwin's devastating spell of 4/11 is his best in the shortest format of the game, followed by his phenomenal efforts (3/22) against South Africa in the semi-final on Friday night. Ashwin also became the first Indian spinner to bag three wickets against South Africa in the tournament. (Highlights)
Following indifferent performances on recent foreign tours of South Africa and New Zealand, Ashwin has made a strong comeback by being among the wickets in the Asia Cup as well as the ongoing World Twenty20.
