CHENNAI: Star off-spinner R Ashwin has been one of the finest bowlers in international cricket and over the years, he has grown in stature for his sharp cricketing acumen. One of Team India‘s premier best players, Ashwin has efficiently used his skillset to orchestrate numerous victories in India and abroad.
Ashwin is now set to use that cricketing intelligence combined with his wit and humour to test cricket fans from the region as he debuts as quiz master and hosts the show ‘Aattathukku Readya?’
The show starts on August 9th at 1pm and is expected to be a treat for sports fans in Tamil Nadu.
Ashwin is understandably excited about donning a new role.
“I have always been a great fan of quizzes and knowing Tamil Nadu fans and their love for cricket it’s even more exciting. Hosting a Cricket Quiz on Star Sports 1 Tamil is a great opportunity not only to connect with my fans and fans of cricket in general but it’s also to see how passionate youngsters are about the game today. I have also been doing quizzes in my personal capacity on social media to a great response. This is a bigger platform reaching a larger audience and more importantly the first cricket quiz in Tamil. I have only one thing to say to all participants – Aattathukku Readya (Are you ready to play)?,” Ashwin said.
