Profile

R Ashwin is a tall off spinner who successfully employed the sudoku ball, a finger-flicked tennis-ball leg break, in international cricket on a larger, harder cricket ball. Carrom Ball by Ajanta Mendis served as his inspiration. This 21-year-old witnessed Mendi’s in a game in Chennai and left sure it could be done with a cricket ball as well, even before he had played for Sri Lanka and confused India’s top-tier Test lineup in one series. Ashwin worked tirelessly on the variation during his maiden season of first-class cricket back then. Ashwin let Mendis loose shortly after it had become a fleeting phenomenon.
