‘You are one of the toughest bowlers I have ever played against’: AB de Villiers hails R Ashwin

In his latest video, he hailed Ashwin for his fantastic achievement of completing 500 Test wickets. "What a fantastic achievement! Congratulations Ash, you are one of the toughest bowlers I have ever played against - an incredible asset for the Indian cricket team with both bat and ball,” De Villiers said.

The former RCB batter also felt that Ashwin does not get enough credit for the role he plays in the Indian team. "He's been a stalwart, but not always getting enough credit for what he is and the role he plays in the Indian team. What a legend!" De Villiers said about Ashwin.

The South African stalwart also advised England batters to be positive against Ashwin. He says, "The one thing that stands out is he's (Ashwin) a tall guy, so he's got natural variation and bounce. He's got subtle changes with his wrist - undercut more and get over the top a little bit more."

"He's also got the carrom ball and the leg-spin - bowls all kinds of deliveries. However, his strength is his accuracy, knowledge of the game and patience. Putting pressure on him is the best way to counter him. Make him guess the lengths he needs to bowl,” De Villiers advised.
