Ankit Bawne is selected as the new captain of the India A team.

Earlier, Ashwin said that he believes in his captaincy ability. Recently he quoted according to the TOI, “I see it as a natural progression for having played cricket for so long at the top level. I have always felt I had it in me (to be captain). WV Raman identified me as a captain when I was 21 years old. I ended up winning a few titles for TN. But for a bowler to become a captain, which is not something natural in the country, this is something fascinating.”

Also, Ashwin has been recently selected as a captain of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) for the 2018 IPL.
