India all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, in a recent chat with, compared India’s most decorated skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to star footballer Lionel Messi and the current captain Virat Kohli with Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I think Andrey Arshavin resembles me, not in terms of looks but names probably. Virat Kohli I think is Cristiano Ronaldo. MS Dhoni is Lionel Messi — in terms of character and the calmness that he exhibits. Yuvraj Singh is Fernando Torres who sticks around the D and rise to get a header in,” said Ashwin.

Ashwin also revealed the biggest disadvantage of being famous as he said:

“The weirdest thing about being famous is people start judging you from a distance without even knowing you.”

On answering a question on his intention to write any book, Ashwin said.

“If ever I decide to write a book it would be titled ‘Out of My Comfort Zone.”

Ravichandran Ashwin is one of the very few cricketers in the Indian team who loves to speak his mind. He is quick with his answers, articulate, possesses a great sense of humour and has the capability to be sarcastic while talking to media. Just like Virender Sehwag, he is very popular on twitter as well but not for making jokes, for giving best answers to the social media trollers. Presently, he is the only member of Indian team who rightly gives it back to the social media trolls in a way they deserve.

Despite having such disturbances from the external world, it has had no impact on his form as he has been the key for Indian team from the day the long home season kicked off. The 30-year-old all-rounder has been tumbling records right from September 22, the day when Indian team started their long home season consisting of 13 Test matches, eight ODIs and three T20Is. Not just bowling, Ashwin has been the star with the bat as well. In short, he has been the champ who has been running the Indian camp to the best of his ability.
