Ravichandran Ashwin throws an interesting challenge to star Indian Chess Player

Ravichandran Ashwin is popular among the Twitterati for his witty tweets. Ashwin has always been very active on Twitter and interacting with his fans and other celebrities.

Ashwin challenges Tania Sachdev

In recent buzz, Ravi Ashwin has delivered a task to Tania to play against 20 players from across the country in a single game of Chess. So, basically it is Tania Vs 20 ‘Chosen' Chess Player. Tania Sachdev is currently holding FIDE titles of ‘International Master' and ‘Women Grandmaster' in Chess.

How it all started

It was all started with Ashwin tweeting about how he is easily winning against the computer in Chess and feeling bored. He posted a photo of the same also. He added that he wanted someone to challenge him for tougher tasks in the game of chess.

Tania replied to that tweet of his by asking for a game with her. Ashwin, in turn, replied saying that he won’t be able to compete with Tania but suggested a challenge to Star Indian Chess Player.
