(Video) Happy birthday to Ravi Ashwin, India’s born match-winner

Ravichandran Ashwin, India’s star all-rounder, turns 35 today. He has been the subject of some controversy this summer, with Virat Kohli and the Test selection panel bizarrely reluctant to pick the off-spinner, but remains one of the world’s best cricketers. Ashwin has revolutionised the art of finger-spin, becoming the number-one ranked master of its trade and taking 413 wickets over a 79-Test career. To average 24.5 with the ball and still offer so much with the bat, including five Test hundreds, makes him an asset India must treasure until he hangs up his boots.
