KXIP vs CSK Star Wars: Ravichandran Ashwin vs Harbhajan Singh

For their respective teams, Ashwin and Harbhajan are proven match-winners, both with the bat and ball.

Harbhajan and Ashwin are crucial to their team's campaign in IPL 2018.

The added responsibility of leading Kings XI Punjab seems to be working well for Ravichandran Ashwin, the bowler. In the two matches for Punjab, Ashwin has returned with figures of 1 for 23 and 2 for 30 after bowling his full quota of overs.

In Sunday's game against his former team Chennai Super Kings, Ashwin would have a key role to play. But not to forget, Chennai has Harbhajan Singh in its camp, an experienced campaigner.

Chennai captain M.S. Dhoni has given him four overs to bowl in two matches, where he returned with one wicket. But the IPL 2018 has just started and Harbhajan could prove to be a trump card in Chennai's return season.
