He took 10 wickets for Tamil Nadu and was rewarded with a 4.5 crores Indian Premier League (IPL) contract with the Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS). He put up a creditable show, picking up 10 wickets and emerging as a spinner to keep a keen eye on. Having missed out on the next season, Ashwin has fallen behind state mate, Washington Sundar, in Tamil Nadu's starting roster, but his career seems to be on the upward curve after he was bought for Rupees 2.2 crore by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) during the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction.
IPL - Through the years
A regular net bowler over the years for Chennai Super Kings, the Dhoni-Fleming duo roped Murugan Ashwin into the Rising Pune Supergiants set-up in 2016 for a whopping price of Rs. 4.5 crore. The leg-break, who at times bowled more than the senior Ashwin (Ravichandran), took seven wickets in 10 matches, but his economy rate was on the higher side - above 8. RPS released him and Delhi Daredevils bought him for Rs. 1 crore. However, he warmed the benches and didn’t feature in a single game. A year later, he was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore structure, but he faced a similar problem - he found it tough to get into the playing XI with Yuzvendra Chahal being the regular spinner. In 2019, Ashwin will represent Kings XI Punjab, under his fellow state-mate’s (R Ashwin) captaincy.
