Ashwin thanks KXIP fans for 'endless support'


"We thank him for his contribution to the team over the last two years and wish him well in his future endeavours".

Under Ashwin's leadership, KXIP played well in the first half of the past two seasons before losing steam in the second half. Even though KXIP co-owner Ness Wadia had earlier refuted the rumours, it has been learnt that Delhi have secured the services of the ace spinner.

It has been reported that Kings XI Punjab co-owner Ness Wadia has finally spoken about Ravichandran Ashwin's departure from the team and it is established that Ashwin and KXIP are amicably parting ways.

Ashwin's time with KXIP came to an end on Friday with the Delhi Capitals officially announcing a trade deal in which the off-spinner went to the franchise based in the national capital while left-arm spinner Jagadeesha Suchith went the other way.

Ashwin is expected to be paid Rs. 7.6 crore by the Delhi Capitals, which is his auction value.

The Indian spinner has led Kings XI Punjab to 28 matches in the IPL so far, with 12 wins and 16 defeats in his kitty.

DCwere interested in the prospect of getting Ashwin to bolster the side. In the IPL, he has represented Chennai Tremendous Kings, with whom he gained titles (in 2010 and 2011), Climbing Pune Supergiants, and Kings XI Punjab, whom he captained as properly.

They are a young team and Ashwin will help with his experience.

Dirty underwear and contested airspace: the long hunt for Baghdadi
Relatives of Kurdish fighters have celebrated al-Baghdadi's death. "We're protecting the dog's identity". In 2010, he became the head of the Islamic State in Iraq (ISI), an offshoot of al-Qaida in Iraq.

He averages 26.48 and has an economy-rate of 6.79. He has won two titles with CSK while he captained KXIP for two seasons. Speculation was already there that the Tamilnadu born off spinner will be on his way. "One thing which they (BCCI) should do is to have the national anthem before each game given that it is the Indian Premier League", Wadia told PTI.

"If you look at the top football leagues all around the world, you do see them playing a lot of pre-season friendlies overseas".

DC will be the happier team after getting Ashwin.
