Team India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has finally opened up on his move from Kings XI Punjab to Delhi Capitals in IPL season. 

Ashwin opens up on Delhi Capitals move and World Cup T20 bid    

At a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Ashwin spoke about various topics from how Yuvraj has inspired him to his interest with white-ball cricket. 

“I enjoy playing day in, day out. But I felt somewhere in my career, because of the white ball snub and injuries, I had lost the joy of playing the game, which was very very dangerous for me. I could not watch the game on TV,” Ashwin told Mumbai Mirror.

“That was something I did not enjoy. Thankfully I have gotten over it. I took the help of people and I have gotten over it. World Twenty20 is a realistic goal for everybody. Who does not want to represent India at the competition. Yuvraj Singh came back for World T20 in 2014 and then in 2017 Champions Trophy. I am only 33," he further added. 

Speaking about his move from Kings XI Punjab to Delhi Capitals he stated that the decision was not his and he had not asked for it. 

“My stint at Kings XI was fantastic to say the least. The experience enriched me in every possible way. I was given the role of captaincy, that was new boundaries I explored. Within my purview, I thought I did a fair job, if not a very good job, but these decisions were not mine entirely,” the off-spinner asserted.

Later talking about fitness, Ashwin said that keeping fit will not just retain me in the field but will also help me grow and learn. 

“As a spin bowler if I can keep my fitness going, keep learning and improving, a lot of things can be delivered in the IPL with experience. As much as people have called it a competition for youth and youngsters, teams who have invested in experience have succeeded. That is also the case in World T20 arena. Vast experiences have gone on to win the World Cups. West Indies, for instance -- Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, Kieron Pollard, etc," he finally stated.
