India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was elated with performance after beating England by 317 runs in the second Test in Chennai on Tuesday,

He picked 8 wickets in the match in total and scored 106 runs, his highest score at Chepauk, and was adjudged Played of the Match for his exploits.

"I am enjoying my game and am really happy it happened in Chennai. Every load up gives a different result in terms of which way the pitch is behaving.

"I try and load up differently, use the breeze, use different angles to release the ball, speed of the run-up. This is working because I have created this awareness for myself. I have been playing it for the last 25 years. I really had to express myself. [In Tamil] As an eight year old I have come here on these very stands to watch cricket.

"I have played four Test matches here and easily this is the most special. I get a hero's feeling here playing cricket in Covid times, and this knowledgable crowd came out in big numbers. They were 1-0 without the crowd, and we made it 1-1 with them. Hopefully we can take it forward," Ashwin said after picking up the Player of the Match award at Chepauk.

All-round India did just what the doctor ordered and produced a stellar performance to register a handsome 317-run victory on Day 4 of the 2nd Test match against England in Chennai. The win means that India have levelled the 4-match series 1-1 before heading to Ahmedabad for the final 2 Tests.
