Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has revealed his current favorite Pakistani cricketer in a Q&A session on his YouTube channel.

Recently, on his Youtube channel, Ashwin came up with a new episode called “40 Shades of Ash”. He took questions from fans on Twitter and answered 40 of them.

In the interaction, Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin named his favourite current cricketer from Pakistan.

Ashwin praised Pakistan's important players, including captain Babar Azam, wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan, and paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi. He also highlighted the potential that Pakistan has produced.

“I've always been following Mohammad Rizwan and have been speaking about him for a while about the quality he brings and plays very crucial knocks but I think the standout batter & the ways he bats, the hundred in Australia, it has to be Babar Azam," Ashwin said.

“After that real sticker that has been going around, Shaheen Shah Afridi is well, real talent. Pakistan has always some talented cricketers and they have more now,” he added.

It must be noted that all three cricketers played an integral part in beating India for the first time in a world cup encounter.
