Kohli has never been shy of dancing and is always seen displaying his moves in various parties of the Royal Challengers Bangalore.Ashwin is a part of the 15-man squad that is set to defend their ICC Champions Trophy title in England from June 4.On being asked about the kind of wickets he is expecting and the team’s mindset regarding the competition, Ashwin said, “Limited overs format is generally not for bowlers. I expect placid wickets. I believe the way to handle pressure is to take one game at a time and we’re not thinking about being defending champions.”Ashwin also spoke about the changes in ODI rules and how he plans to work around them.”There have been a lot of changes to the ODI rules. There is no point of going with same skills. I have been applying my mind to it all and hopefully I will be able to give something new,” Ashwin said.Ashwin missed out on this season of the Indian Premier League due to sports hernia and has been out of action for quite sometime.advertisementOn being asked if loss of game time makes a difference, Ashwin said, “The question of match practice will be up to practice games now. I needed the break to attend to injury but I have been training in the break.”Ashwin went on to praise the effects of IPL on domestic cricket and said, “IPL has only done good for Indian cricket and the international players also echo same feeling.”last_img
