Some Lesser Known Facts About Murugan Ashwin

  • His father was the scriptwriter for the famous Tamil flick Billa 2, a movie that starred Ajith Kumar.
  • He made his first-class debut for Tamil Nadu against Odisha in the 2012 Ranji Trophy. The sad news for the 22-year-old was that 3 days of the game was washed out and he did not get a chance to bowl. He was highly expensive in the next match against Karnataka and ended up with figures of 1/176.
  • His List A debut came against Mumbai in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2016. He bowled alongside Ravi Ashwin and picked up 3/38 in 7.2 overs that he bowled picking up the key wicket of centurion A Herwadkar. Tamil Nadu won the match by 26 runs.
  • His domestic career hasn’t been great so far but it was during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy that he made his mark. Having played 6 matches, he picked up 10 wickets at an economy under 6 and strike rate close to 14. It was this impressive show that made him fetch the big bucks at the IPL auction.
  • In terms of the hike from the base price to the sold price, M Ashwin made the biggest gain, a multiple of 45 times from his original base price. His base price was 10 Lakhs, but the bidders showed great interest in buying him and eventually it was the Rising Pune Supergiants who bagged him for a whopping 4.5 crores.
  • While many might wonder if there is a link between M Ashwin and the Indian ace spinner R Ashwin, they would be perhaps correct with the guess. M Ashwin studied and graduated from the same college in which Ashwin studied. Both the Ashwin’s graduated from Sri Sivasubramaniya Nadar College of Engineering in Chennai. While Ravi Ashwin is an off-spinner, M Ashwin bowls leg-break.
