Man of the Series in India Vs England Test Series 2016
Question in detailReady to demolish anything on his way, Ravichandran Ashwin is no less a threat to the visiting side England. English batsmen will need to somehow keep Ashwin off the wicket column if they want to repeat the feat of 2012. But, handling Ashwin on India's turning tracks is no way easy. Picking up 220 wickets in 39 Test matches at an impressive average of 24.29, Ashwin has evolved a lot as a spinner over the years. His numbers are just phenomenal, and hence he can become the man of the series in India Vs England Test series 2016.
Ashwin's growth as an off-spinner has been supernormal. Also as a batsman, Ashwin has reaped great success in Test cricket. With 1510 Test runs in 55 innings of 39 Tests, Ashwin averages 33.50; nothing short of an established middle-order batsman. He is a complete all-rounder, equally effective with bat as much as with ball. Ashwin, who once relied on his carom ball most to elude batsmen, is now a relentless off-spinner with ability to take wickets in bunch.
Of the fourteen Test series played both at home and away from home, Ashwin has earned 7 man-of-the-series awards, sometimes for his lethal bowling display while other times for his all-round performance. Now it's a tossup for the man of the series in India Vs England Test series 2016; Ashwin is one side and the rest from both the sides are at the other side.
Will India Vs England Test series bring Ravichandran Ashwin yet another man of the series award?
