Career


Domestic Career


Coached by Suresh Kumar, Ashwin started playing cricket when he was in Santhome Higher Secondary School, Chennai and then DAV Public School. His professional career started when he entered Sri Sivasubramaniya Nadar College of Engineering, Chennai. His debut in List A was on 11 December 2015 in Vijay Hazare Trophy, 2015. His T-20 debut was in Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy on 2 January 2016 against Haryana where he did bowling for 4 overs and took 4 wickets. Ashwin finished as the second-highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets in the 2015-16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy representing Tamil Nadu.



IPL Career


Murugan Ashwin was the biggest gainer in the 2016 IPL auction when Rising Pune Super Giants bought him for 4.5 crores (INR) from the base price of 10 lakhs (INR). Ashwin didn't disappoint either as he put up a phenomenal show, picking up 10 wickets and emerging as a spinner to keep a keen eye on.Β However, after missing the next season, he was snapped up by Delhi where he didn't get many chances. In 2018, he was bought for INR 2.2 crore by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) during the 2018 auction.

Later, the leg-spinner was picked up by Kings XI Punjab for INR 20 lakhs ahead of IPL 2019. While he played 10 games, he struggled to find wickets as he could manage only 5 dismissals to his name but he should gain confidence by the fact that KXIP have believed in him by retaining him ahead of the 2020 season and he can start afresh in UAE.


Background


Ashwin was a sharp student as he scored 93% in CBSE Matrics, 94.5% in 12th boards and GPA of 8 in mechanical engineering. Murugan is often misunderstood as the brother Indian offspinner R Ashwin, which he is not. Though, there a common think between the two as he and Ravichandran Ashwin both graduated from the Sri Sivasubramaniya Nadar College of Engineering in Chennai.
