Kolkata: The newly married Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin hopes that he will continue his good show at the Eden Gardens when he comes on to bowl during the second Test match.

After arriving in Kolkata on Sunday, Ashwin, who took wedding vows said, "I did well in the last ODI we played here. I'm looking forward towards continuing my good show here as well. Hope I do well and help India win the series (by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead)."

Ashwin claimed 3/28 in India's 95-run win over England to clinch the ODI series 5-0.

Ashwin seemed to be quite happy that he has struck a good partnership with teammate Pragyan Ojha who also got his maiden five-wicket haul in the last Test match.

"I know him for quite a long time since our junior days. We know each other well that helps while bowling. We are really enjoying each other's company. Ojha does well with his miserly bowling," he said.

Asked whether he has set his eyes on the Australia tour beginning December 26, Ashwin said, "It's too early... My focus is now on the second Test beginning tomorrow."

His newly-wedded wife Preethi Narayanan has also come along with him. Their marriage reception that was held on Saturday had 1000 guests including chairman of national selection committee Krishnamachari Srikkanth attending the function.
