Man of the Series in India vs New Zealand Test Series
Question in detailThe man of the series award is meant to honor the best player in a particular series. He who ends up the series being either the leading run scorer or the highest wicket taker claims the title. However, if two or more players hover with similar score in the series, the award usually goes to an all-rounder. An all rounder is a valuable asset for any side. And if a team involves an all-rounder like Ravichandran Ashwin who is equally effective with bat as much as with ball, their chances to win increase automatically. Ashwin's ability to bat in the lower order plus his skills to spin the ball even on flat surface lends a lot of flexibility to the captain. Placed 3rd as a bowler in the international Test ranking, Ashwin is apparently one of the strongest contestants to claim the player of the series award in India Vs New Zealand Test series 2016.
Ravichandran Ashwin's all-round performance has put him atop in the ICC current Test rankings of all-rounders. He has been impressive with both bat and ball. Recently, we saw him enjoying two hundreds against West Indies and that too on Caribbean land. Ashwin's added bating skills are what make him the strongest claimant of player of the series award in India Vs New Zealand Test series 2016.
Will Ravichandran Ashwin claim the man of the series yet again in India Vs New Zealand Test series 2016?
