"It was important for Ravichandran Ashwin to be a part of Kings XI Punjab but it's now time to look towards the next step", the recently-appointed Director of Cricket Operations and Head Coach Anil Kumble said.

Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Thursday (November 7) confirmed the trade of Ravichandran Ashwin to Delhi Capitals (DC) for Rs. 1.5 crore in exchange of left-arm spinner Jagadeesha Suchith bringing an end to all the speculations over Ashwin's future for the upcoming IPL 2020 season. Now that Ashwin's move to Delhi of India is said to be nearly done, it will be interesting to see how the Capitals use the ace off-spinner. Wadia also stressed that Ashwin's move to the Delhi Capitals is not a done deal and KXIP are negotiating with other teams too.

He's simply a person of the finest and most professional spinners close to, with a great history in India and IPL colors. Ashwin, who took over as the skipper of the KXIP only in 2018, failed to lead the franchise to the playoffs in any of the two seasons (2018 and 2019) but made the headlines for the wrong reasons this year, thanks to an act of "Mankading".

The 33-year-old spinner has been among the top performers in the IPL since making his debut in 2009, having snared 125 wickets from 139 games at an excellent economy rate of 6.79.
