The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a tournament where international teammates get a chance to play against each other and earn some brownie points compared to others. Indian foreigner Ravichandran Ashwin played for the Rajasthan Royals in the 2022 IPL and in his first match for the franchise this season, Ashwin returned 0-21 in his full quota of four overs. Ahead of the team’s next match, against Mumbai Indians, Ashwin named two Indian stars he likes to “meet”.

“I love hanging out with Virat and Rohit, to be honest. I think they are two quality batsmen who once played with me in the locker room, not two batsmen I repeatedly fought against in the international arena,” Ashwin said on the ESPNcricinfo show “Polite Questions” .

“But I can play against them in the IPL format so I like to play against them. They don’t like meeting bowlers in the team so I enjoy the competition and look forward to it every year,” he added.

Rajasthan Royals won the opening match of IPL 2022 against SunRisers Hyderabad with 61 runs. In the match against SunRisers, Yuzvendra Chahal returned with three wickets while Prasidh Krishna took two wickets.

The next franchise will be against Mumbai Indians led by Rohit Sharma on Saturday. The match between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be played on April 5th.


In the 168 IPL matches he has played, Ashwin has managed to take 145 wickets at an average of 27.95. His best bowling figure in the competition was 4-34. The outside spinner previously led Kings XI Punjab (now King of Punjab) in the IPL.

Prior to being bought by Rajasthan Royals, Ashwin represented Delhi Capitals but he was not retained by the Rishabh Pant -led franchise and the spinner was later taken over by Rajasthan in this year’s mega auction.
