Ravi Ashwin is now in the bad phase of his life. First he ignored by the team management for the 1st Test match against West Indies and now he is likely to be released by the franchise ahead the IPL 2020.
The KXIP is looking for the trading Ashwin with couple of IPL franchises – Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals. The decision by the Team management will be announced by the end of this week.
Ravi Ashwin joined the Kings XI Punjab franchise ahead the IPL 2018. He sold out in INR 7.8 crores. Earlier he was a regular member of the Chennai Super Kings, but after their two year suspension, he joined the Rising Pune Supergiant.
Now the big question is that, who will be the new skipper of Kings XI Punjab in the absence of Ravi Ashwin? The opener batsman KL Rahul is the perfect candidate for this job.
