Brad Hogg, a former cricketer turned analyst, has picked India all-rounder Ravi Ashwin as the number one bowler for the year 2021. In Tests and T20Is, the off-spinner had a fantastic year. With 54 wickets, he finished the year as the leading wicket-taker in the longest format. He also made a comeback in Twenty20 Internationals, performing admirably in the 20-20 World Cup and a three-match T20I series against New Zealand.
The former Australia bowler also mentioned Joe Root as his best batter when chatting on his YouTube channel. The England Test skipper concluded the year with a total of 1708 runs. As a result, he moved into third place on the list of batsmen who scored the most runs in a calendar year in Test cricket.
