R Ashwin IPL 2022: R Ashwin needs to improve his performance and bowl more off-spin

Ahmedabad, Pretr. Rajasthan Royals director of cricket Kumar Sangakkara feels Ravichandran Ashwin is a great cricketer but he should look to improve and bowl more of the traditional off break. Ranked second in the list of bowlers with most Test wickets (442) for India, Ashwin experiments a lot in his bowling. He sometimes puts more carrom hair than the traditional off break.

Sangakkara said Ashwin has done well for us

Sangakkara said, “Ashwin has done exceptionally well for us, his achievements on the cricket field make him a legend. Still, there is room for improvement, especially he should bowl more off-spin. Ashwin has been able to take only 12 wickets in 17 matches this season. In the final too, he bowled more carrom balls than off break balls. He conceded 32 runs in three overs and did not get any wicket. Rajasthan’s team could only manage 130 for nine and Sangakkara believes that was not enough.

He said, ‘130 runs were never enough. We were also talking about choosing to bowl first. When we reached the ground, the pitch was dry and we thought it would slow down, which would give turn to our spinners. We were expecting 160-165 runs. We had scored 70 for a wicket in 10 overs and we were in a good position, but after Sanju was dismissed, his bowlers put the pressure on. We took some of his wickets in the powerplay, but it was costly to give life to Shubman Gill in the first over.

Despite his good showing in the season, Sangakkara feels the team needs to improve in several areas

Despite his good showing in the season, Sangakkara feels the team needs to improve in several areas. “We have to improve in many areas. Talking about the batting, Jos Buttler, Sanju and Shimron Hetmyer scored a lot of runs. Riyan Parag and Devdutt Padikkal did well in pieces but they have to contribute more.
