Ashwin second Indian to play county cricket after Rahane

Ashwin second Indian to play county cricket after Rahane

New Delhi, May 23 (UNI) Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be the second Indian after Ajinkya Rahane to play county cricket this season.

Ashwin will join Nottinghamshire for the second half of the county season and comes in place of Australia's James Pattinson as Nottinghamshire's overseas player at the end of June and is expected to feature in six of their final seven red-ball matches.



He plays at home against Essex on June 30, followed by matches against Somerset and Surrey. However, will not play away fixture against Yorkshire but will be back against Kent, Warwickshire and Surrey.

"I enjoyed my previous stint in England with Worcestershire. It's a good, competitive standard of cricket over there and I can't wait to get started, joining up with Nottinghamshire at an iconic venue like Trent Bridge and hopefully contributing to some County Championship victories," Ashwin said.

Ashwin plays for the second time in the county. In 2017, having played four matches for Worcestershire the spinner bagged 20 wickets and scored 214 runs with an average of 42.80.

Ajinkya Rahane had signed for Hampshire earlier and started his season with a century on Wednesday, against the team Ashwin has signed for.
