Ashwin is currently preparing for the second-half of the IPL 2021 with his team Delhi Capitals. The off-spinner has been picked in the national squad for the T20 World Cup despite not featuring in India's white-ball matches since 2017.
After the announcement of the squad, Ashwin wrote, "Happiness and gratitude are the only two words that define me now."
