Ashwin’s Bizarre Batting Stance Triggers Memes Fest
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin once again hogged the headlines with his bizarre batting stance against Delhi Capitals on May 11.
Ashwin’s promotion to three as a pinch hitter began to work well when he carted a brace of fours off Shardul Thakury.
But as much as, Ashwin’s batting is in the news, more than that his ‘stance’ is being discussed on social media platforms. The 35-year-old pulled off the funny-looking stance while facing left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav. The batter might have taken the stance to disturb the bowler’s concentration.
One social media user wrote on Twitter, “We have an answer to Kedar Jadhav’s floor bowling.”
After reaching his maiden IPL fifty in 37 balls, Ashwin miscued to mid-off but did his job to perfection.
Ashwin has been in discussion many times for his ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking on the cricket field. In 2019, he was in the news due to Mankad’s dismissal of Jos Buttler. This season too, he was the first batsman to be ‘retired out’ during the game against Lucknow Super Giants.The incident sparked discussions on social media with many fans and former cricketers expressing varied opinions on the same.
