Ravichandran Ashwin, Indias and the worlds leading off-spinner, launched Ashwin foundation in Chennai on Tuesday, 11th June. With this, he aims to help young cricketers at his Gen-Next Cricket Institute.

R. Ashwin had handpicked 8 youngsters who will be provided with scholarship and kits on behalf of the foundation run by Ashwin and his wife Prithi.

Further, the foundation would aim to create awareness among trainees of Gen-Next Cricket Institute about the importance of eye donation, right to vote and safe driving.

While speaking about Indias chances in the ongoing World Cup, Ashwin observed: The Virat Kohli-led team would dominate like Australia did in 2003 and 2007. Chahal and Kuldeep have grabbed the chances that came their way.

Regarding the recent trend that off-spinners not being preferred much these days, he said it was a wrong perception. He also mentioned he would be leaving for England 23 June to play for county side Nottinghamshire in the second half of the season. He had turned out for Worcestershire last time. He added, I will be leaving for England on June 23 to play for English county team Nottinghamshire. Let us see how it goes.
