Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is confident of replicating his form that he showed in the Border-Gavaksar Trophy 2013, on the less spin-friendly Australian wickets.

Ashwin was a crucial part of India’s Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2013 win. He claimed 29 wickets in 4 matches at an average of 20.10. Australian batsman had no answer to his magic and this time also, Ashwin feels he can pick up a lot of wickets for the team on the wickets that don’t assist spinners much. 

Ashwin was quoted in saying to the BCCI website:

“I don’t buy into the notion that you have to go to a place two (or) three times before you can succeed there. 

“Even if you put me on a new planet, I am firmly going to believe that I can pick wickets. That mindset is in my DNA and it will not change. If you are faced with certain conditions, respect them and just land the ball where the conditions demand.”

Ashwin also expressed that overseas losses in the past 3 years has somewhat affected the team’s morale but this time around, the team is not short of belief and feels that this Indian team can defeat Australia (on their own backyard).

“I don’t know what people think about this team, but I do know that we can do this,” he said.
