The Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 is around the corner, and the excitement among fans and players can be clearly seen on social media platforms. India’s star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, known for his blunt responses, recently took to Twitter to share a picture of a funny edited bio which shows him in a new role ahead of the BGT 2023.
India will take on Australia in the inaugural match of BGT 2023 at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur from Thursday, February 9. Notably, it is a crucial four-match test series for India as on it depends their World Test Championship 2023 final qualifying hopes. The hosts need to win the leg either 3-0 or 4-0 to make it to the summit clash.
The Aussies have already started preparing for the challenge and were spotted training with a hired rookie spinner Mahesh Pithiya. The main purpose of the touring side behind roping in Pithiya is to get ready to tackle Ashwin in the upcoming Test matches. But despite all these efforts, it wouldn’t be easy for the Australian side to face a quality spinner like Ashwin in Indian conditions.
While many former cricketers reacted on Australia training with duplicate Ashwin, the 36-year-old refrained from speaking about it. However, amid all this, Ashwin posted a picture on Twitter of a funny edited bio of himself that showed him as both an off-spinner and leg-spinner. He captioned the image: “My morning coffee came with this and I wonder who has done this.”

Fans soon after Ashwin’s post flooded social media with jokes and memes. Some even called it the Tamil Nadu cricketer’s new plan to surprise Australia after he saw them train with Pithiya.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
