Veteran India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is currently sweating hard to face Tim Paine-led side in the four-match Test series, which is set to kick-off from December 17.
Amid the intense training sessions in Australia, Ashwin recently took to his official Instagram handle to post an adorable picture with his daughter.
Captioning the photo, Ashwin wrote, “'A' Team! @prithinarayanan"
While the picture garnered the attention of many fans and cricketers, Ashwin’s wife Prithi Narayanan responded with numerous heart emoticons.
Even the CEO of Delhi Capitals commented, “The same infectious smile".
Ashwin was a part of the Delhi-based franchise in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League. The 34-year-old bowler played an important role in his side’s success in the UAE as he scalped 13 wickets from 15 games at an economy rate of 7.66.
Shreyas Iyer-led side reached the finale for the first time in the history of IPL. However, the franchise suffered a five-wicket defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in Dubai and eventually missed their maiden title by a whisker.
As far as Ashwin is concerned, the Chennai-born player was at his best in the first warm-up match against Australia A at the Drummoyne Oval. He picked two wickets in the first innings while conceding 62 runs.
Notably, Ashwin was rested for the ongoing second practice match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
