Commenting on Ashwin’s inclusion, head coach Ricky Ponting had said: “Ashwin adds a lot of value to any team that he’s a part of, and I’m sure it’s going to be no different when he joins Delhi Capitals. It is no secret that the pitch on our home ground is on the slower side, and is known to assist spinners. I believe, Ashwin, with his clever bowling, will have a tremendous impact when he bowls on it.”
Delhi Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal had said: “I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Ravichandran Ashwin to the Delhi Capitals family. He’s easily one of the best and most experienced spinners around, with a tremendous record in India and IPL colours. There’s no doubt in my mind that Ashwin’s presence will benefit our team tremendously, as we eye the big prize — the IPL title.”
The players’ transfer and release window will close on Friday. The IPL auction 2020 will take place in Kolkata on December 19.
