Ravichandran Ashwin turns 34 on Thursday and wishes have poured in from the cricket fraternity and beyond on the cricketer’s birthday. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video link to Ashwin’s seven-wicket haul against South Africa in the 2019 Test series. “Us trying to pick one adjective for Ashwin is like batsmen trying to pick his variations. Keep bamboozling us all with your skill, wit, and intellect,” tweeted Ashwin’s Indian Premier League (IPL) team Delhi Capitals.
Fastest Indian and joint fastest (overall) to Test wickets
Fourth highest wicket-taker for #TeamIndia in Tests
Happy birthday to our very own @ashwinravi99.
Here’s an Ashwin classic you can relive on his special day.

He tempts the batsman to leave his crease at the striker’s end. And forces him to stay behind it at the non-striker’s end! Wishing @ashwinravi99 a very happy birthday and lots of work for those fingers this year
