Kings XI Punjab's Aaron Finch is highly impressed with Ravichandran Ashwin's captaincy in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. He has even compared to Ashwin to Chennai Super Kings’ skipper MS Dhoni.
"I think Ashwin has been outstanding. He is very calm and that comes with playing under MS Dhoni. MSD is a cool guy and Ashwin has also been calm and made some great decisions," Finch was quoted as saying by Cricketnext.
The Australian batsman went on to say, "While he hasn't had a lot of experience of leading the side in the past, he has been a successful cricketer and has brought that to the table as a leader. He brings the group together and speaks to individuals before the game.
"Along with chief coach Brad Hodge, Ashwin has left no stone unturned when it comes to preparations for a game," Finch explained.
Ashwin has made some interesting decisions as captain, including using Chris Gayle with caution and even dropping the out-of-form Yuvraj Singh.
As things stand, Punjab are only a couple of wins away from making the play-offs.
