Chennai, Sep 19 (PTI) Nursing dreams of one final ODI World Cup appearance in India blues, Ravichandran Ashwin warmed up nicely by bowling full quota of 10 overs before linking with the national team for the upcoming three-match series against Australia.

If 37-year-old Ashwin pips a hamstrung Axar Patel in the final 15 of the World Cup, he will be one of the two existing cricketers (other being Virat Kohli), who were part of the historic 2011 squad.

Someone, who has always been a dedicated club cricketer even after becoming an international star, it wasn't surprising to find Ashwin turn up for Mylapore Recreational Club A against Young Stars Cricket Club at SSN ground in the TNCA VAP Trophy here on Tuesday.
