3. Krishnappa Gowtham

The veteran of domestic cricket, Krishnappa Gowtham has played 79 T20 matches and claimed 62 scalps with an economy rate of 7.19. Gowtham might be considered as a like-to-like replacement for Ashwin as he can fit the role of an off-spin all-rounder.

2. Rahul Chahar

 Rajasthan-born leggie, Rahul Chahar played his last T20I for India in last year’s 20-20 World Cup. Chahar has scalped 106 wickets in 91 T20s.  As a senior all-rounder, Ashwin is nearing 40 so Rahul Chahar might be a perfect replacement 

1. Washington Sundar

23-year-old made his T20I debut for the Indian team five years back in the year 2017. Since then, Washy has played 31 T20Is for India and scalped 25 wickets with an economy rate of 7.24.  The Indian selectors might count on him if they make up their minds to replace Ravichandran Ashwin in the T20 Internationals.
