Ravichandran Ashwin has performed well over the years for India.

Former ace leg spinner Anil Kumble on Thursday expressed hope that India would win the ICC World Twenty20 Championship.

“The world cup is round the corner and I am hoping that India will bring the cup,” Kumble told reporters here on the sidelines of a training programme of his academy Tenvic.

Replying to a question about playing against Pakistan, he said whenever India played against any one, “We played for the cause of the team.”

On the performance of off-spinner R Ashwin, the former India captain said: “He is really capable. Probably he is the number one spinner in the world and performed well over the years.”
