Ravichandran Ashwin bids goodbye to KXIP, joins Delhi Capitals

Proving all the speculations right, Indian ace Test Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has traded to Delhi Capitals by Kings XI Punjab.

This Tamilnadu Off-spinner got traded to Delhi Capitals for ₹1.5 crores and Karnataka spinner Jagadeesha Suchith. Ashwin will get ₹7.6 crores, his auction value from the IPL 2018 auction.
Ashwin was the captain for the Kings XI Punjab whose co-owner is Preethi Zinta. However, he failed in both seasons to lead his team to play-offs. They finished seventh in 2018 and sixth in 2019.
Suchith has signed by Delhi Capitals as a replacement in IPL 2019 at his base price of ₹20 lakh. IPL transfer window closes on November 14. The two clubs will now have to wait for the consent of the IPL Governing Council on the deal.
"It was a pleasure working with Ashwin. We enjoyed our time with him and I wish him all the best," Kings XI Punjab co-owner, Ness Wadia, quoted as saying by Sportstar. "All the parties are happy. We wanted to get a spinner on board and we are happy to have Suchith with us," Wadia said.
