Worcestershire have signed India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin for the remainder of the 2017 county season. The 30-year-old, who is third in the Test bowling rankings, has joined as overseas cover for injured Australia all-rounder John Hastings. He has taken 292 wickets and scored two thousand and thirty five runs in 52 Tests for India. Ashwin’s first spell in English county cricket will be as part of a Worcestershire team chasing promotion from Division Two of the Championship. Worcestershire are in the second promotion spot with four games left, but Northamptonshire, Sussex and Kent are all within 17 points and also have a game in hand.
