Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been an integral part of the Indian side in red-ball cricket. The spinner is known for his ability to explore, experiment and try something new, by going the extra mile and choosing a different approach. Be it his carom-ball techniques or batting, Ashwin brings in something extra while playing his game. The cricketer feels that it’s the competitive spirit that brings out the best in him. He also expressed that the day he feels satisfied and loses the urge to learn new things, he will quit the sport.

I did not settle for anything, constantly looking to improve: Ashwin

The Indian spinner threw light upon the approach and attitude that has helped him advance in his career. “The beauty about Test cricket is you are always aspiring to be perfect but you can settle for excellence, so that’s pretty much I think I do. I think whatever I have achieved so far in my career is because of that attitude, did not settle for anything, constantly looking to improve,” Ashwin mentioned.

He further stated that if he loses the patience to do something new and feels that he is satisfied, he might choose to not play the sport.

The Indian spinner is of crucial importance in the ongoing World Test Championship final in India’s bowling attack, as well as in the lower middle order.
