IPL 2018: Ashwin praises Viru and Yuvi

The former Indian opener is also bullish on the team's chances to win its maiden trophy this season

However, he will also have the services of mentor Sehwag and senior player Yuvraj.

"I am happy that both players were bought at their base price because other teams could spent crores on them". I played under Yuvi paaji in my first Challenger Trophy and he has played a big role in whoever I am today. "Learning from experiences and taking advice is something I am never averse to".

"I will go about my job and the spectators can decide whether there is any similarity. For me, it is all about incorporating whatever I have learnt over the years", he said at the jersey launch.

The 31-year-old viewed captaincy as a responsibility.

Ravichandran Ashwin is delighted to be the new king of the north and is rearing to let his balanced side go big on the Indian Premier League 2018 season.

"I'd like to win the trophy here as well, I still remember there was a bit of void in that team (Tamil Nadu) as a lot of stars had left due to ICL".

The Parents of Seth Rich Are Suing Fox News Over Murder Conspiracy
Right-wing pundit Sean Hannity faced backlash for doubling down on the conspiracy theory despite Fox News' retraction. He eventually dropped the story after speaking with Rich's family, telling his audience they asked him to pull back .

"Every team has their own weaknesses and strengths, people might see this (wicket-keeping) as a weakness for us but as far as I am concerned, a keeper only has to take six balls in an average T20 game, so if our keeper can do it then it will be well and good", he said. It was a different experience. I see it as a lot of responsibility in terms of trying to get the bowlers up to speed, especially in this day and age in T20 when nearly every bowler goes for runs irrespective of the quality of the bowler.

"The kind of team we have this year, we can win the championship. We will approach it that way".

Often tagged as one of the inconsistent sides of the tournament, the Kings XI Punjab had their best outing under George Bailey's leadership in 2014 but just could not cross the final hurdle. Yuvraj is a match-winning player and he is capable of making his team win with his performance.

"Having played global cricket for close to 10 years, I don't think I will have an issue (handling the senior players)". We think we can win this year.

The former Indian opener also said, "Hopefully this time we have prepared a good team by investing huge amount". This will however be the first time he leads a team in the shortest format.
