Ashwin💫 Confirmed for Worcestershire Return👍

India spinner R Ashwin will extend his stay in England after the upcoming Test series after signing for Worcestershire. Ashwin, who had his first taste of county cricket with Worcestershire last season, will return for their final two Championship games in 2018.

Last season, Ashwin had a major impact at Worcestershire, taking 20 wickets in four matches while averaging 42.50 with the bat. The club is keen to bring him back and clearance has now been agreed with the BCCI.

"We are delighted to have Ashwin coming back for what could be a key part of the season," Worcestershire's chief executive, Matt Rawnsley, said. "He is one of the best spinners in world cricket and the influence he had when here last season cannot be underestimated.

"The lads all speak so highly of him, the impact he had on the field and the way he slotted in so well off the pitch and he was willing to offer advice to our young spinners like Ben Twohig."
