R Ashwin Batting Stance: Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin was in the news on social media due to the innings played against Delhi Capitals (DC) at DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai on Wednesday. Ashwin was sent to bat at number three when Rajasthan lost the wicket of their best batsman Jos Buttler.
Ashwin robbed the gathering with this strange batting stance
As a pinch hitter, Ashwin took the bat at number three and he hit a four off Shardul Thakur and hit a six off Axar Patel in the last over of the powerplay, but Ashwin’s batting is not discussed, more social than that. His ‘stance’ is being discussed on the media. The 35-year-old took the ball across the boundary while facing left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav.

Fans gave funny reactions
Ashwin headed for mid-off after reaching his maiden IPL fifty in 37 balls. At the other end, Padikkal also appeared in a swashbuckling style and hit a four at fine leg. Ashwin has been in the news many times for his ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking on the cricket field. He was in the news due to Mankad’s dismissal of Jos Buttler in 2019.

This season also he was the first batsman to be ‘retired out’ during the game against Lucknow Super Giants. Ashwin was batting after scoring 28 runs in 23 balls. He was sent to bat by the Royals in place of young player Riyan Parag. Due to his batting, many fans and former cricketers have expressed their different opinions on social media.
