    R. Ashwin And His Wife Had The Cutest Twitter Exchange At The End Of His Last Match


    India just finished a hard-fought 2-0 series win over the West Indies, with Ravichandran Ashwin winning a record-breaking sixth man of the series award.

    Ashwin broke Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag's long-standing Indian record, who both have five awards each.

    After the match, Ashwin dedicated the award to his wife Prithi in a video addressed to her, and revealed that it was something she had asked for, before he left for the tour.

    Before I left for the carribeAn , u asked me for this!! Dint u?@prithinarayanan

    Twitter was in aw(w)e of this grand gesture of love and couldn't even.

    But, while you might think Ashwin won all the brownie points, his wife's reply suggested that he might have overestimated her desire for the award, and misjudged her priorities just a ~wee~ bit.

    Don't worry, she still appreciated the effort.

    Oh well, Ashwin. Can't win 'em all.
