Ravichandran Ashwin: Wicket of AB de Villiers in Nagpur my most satisfying scalp of 2015
Ashwin led the Indian bowling line-up throughout the year.
New Delhi: Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who has been outstanding throughout the year with the ball, picked South African superman AB de Villiers' wicket in Nagpur as his most satisfying scalp of 2015.
“...It has to be AB (de Villiers) in Nagpur. I hadn't bowled the carrom ball to him for a while. During that innings, he was getting outside the line of leg-stump, trying to get the LBW out of the way. I beat him on the leg side once, then I beat him with off spin and after that I landed one on the stumps. He thought the ball would turn, it didn't. Over a period of 10 balls I built that dismissal up and it was one of the best of my career,” told the premier Indian spinner Ashiwn to The Times of India.
However, when the Chennai bowler, who helped India win two Test series against Sri Lanka and South Africa this year, was asked to pick his highest point of the year he said that: “It's the Man of the Series award that I won in Sri Lanka. It was my first Test win abroad. I was a very important part of that tour along with a young captain and I hope we live many such moments this year as well.”
