He was selected by Chennai Super Kings in 2008, but he did not know about Dhoni in the first season of IPL. He improved his skills during this time and worked hard to realize his goal.

Ashwin told, “For me, taking the wicket of MS Dhoni became a dream from 2009. I bowled incredibly in the Challenger Trophy in Nagpur and got him out in the final. From then on, Dhoni started seeing the skill in me and our relationship became strong.”

After this, he made his place in the IPL and became a part of the CSK team from 2010. He made a significant contribution to Chennai Super Kings and helped them win their first IPL title.

Ashwin also spoke about his relationship with Dhoni, “Dhoni is a believer and he trusts you. Once he feels you are a horse, he is very interested in watching you practice.”
