"I think it's been a batsmen's tournament, so you've got to stick to your basics and hope that you put the balls in the right place. When I came back I was pretty confident, I had my plans in place and I also had the extra fielder outside the circle, which was a big advantage," said Ashwin ahead of the second T20I here.
Ashwin felt he had the skills to come out on top when asked about Aaron Finch's attempted charge against him in the first T20I.
"...if they have a license, I have a license to pick up wickets too. And it's not like their off-spinner has gone very kindly, he's gone for 80 runs in all the games, that's the way the series is,” said the off-spinner.

"It's not about an off-spinner; I think everybody has gone for runs. You can target a bowler or not, it's just a game-plan. And if that is their game-plan I'm more than happy for them to continue doing it. I think I have enough abilities to try and come out on top of it," he explained.
Ashwin returned after a break of three games in Adelaide, and he opened the bowling with Ashish Nehra. Later, he returned to bowl in tandem with Ravindra Jadeja, and helped script India's win with figures of two for 28.
