Mumbai: Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman said Ravichandran Ashwin is a very thoughtful cricketer who is constantly innovating. He pointed out that preparation played an important role in the success of this experienced off-spinner.
Ashwin’s “ strong ” performance
Ashwin (VVS Laxman) became the fourth Indian bowler to reach the 400 wicket mark in the cricket test by sacking Joffra Archer during the Day Night Test in Ahmedabad. India won this test by 10 wickets in two days. Ashwin, 34, achieved the feat in the fewest matches after Sri Lankan great Muttiah Muralitharan.
Ashwin is a brain player
Laxman, who played 134 tests for India, said, “I think he (Ashwin) is a very sane person. When playing at the highest level, not only your skills matter, your preparation, planning is also very important.

He said, “Ashwin knows what the drummer’s weaknesses are. He plans to fire him and I think that’s why he brings something new to himself ”.
Laxman read the praises of Ashwin
To prove his point, Laxman (VVS Laxman) gave an example of Steve Smith’s anger against Ashwin during the recent India tour to Australia. He said: “We saw in the recent Australian series how Ashwin also troubled a legend like Steve Smith and that thing makes Ashwin or any other champion player special.”
Akash Chopra also praised
Former Indian opener Akash Chopra also praised Ravichandran Ashwin, saying he was one of the biggest victorious players in the country.
Chopra said: “78 tryouts for 400 tryouts. He has shown great skills so far and is progressing as a bowler, he receives a lot of wickets. I think she’s a rockstar. He is included in the biggest match winner in India to date, of course Anil Kumble will be number one ”.
