With the anticipation rising for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Ravichandran Ashwin, one of the finest spinners in the world, has been the main focus of discussion. Ahead of this series, Ashwin shared a hilarious picture of his edited bio.

The veteran spinner on Sunday shared a picture of his edited bio with the caption, "My morning coffee came with this and I wonder who has done this." In the bio, Ashwin's bowling style is written as My morning coffee came with this and I wonder who has done this "Right Arm Off-break, and Right Arm Leg-break" both.

Responding to Ashwin's post, his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, Rajasthan Royals posted, "Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy."

Ashwin has a range of variations in his bowling style, including leg breaks and carrom balls, which he can use to bowl out the Australian batting when the two teams meet in the first Test in Nagpur.
