Watch: Ravi Ashwin’s weird bowling action
Nowadays, Ravichandran Ashwin is making the headlines for all the strange reasons. First, the Kings XI Punjab skipper mankaded Jos Buttler in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League.
After that, he continued to trigger the fans worldwide by coming up with a bizarre bowling action in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) against Chepaul Super Gillies.
Cricket fans on social media took to their respective handles to react to Ashwin’s bowling action as well. Now again, Dindigul Dragons skipper Ravi Ashwin experimented his bowling by coming up with one more freaking delivery against Madurai Panthers and much to everyone’s surprise, he picked up a wicket.
During the fourth ball of the final over of the innings, the carrom-ball spinner hid the ball behind his back in the build-up to his bowling, before releasing a flighted delivery whilst keeping his other arm stationary.
The batsman in reply wasn’t sure to read the ball at the split second as he got mixed up as he miscued his shot straight to the fielder at long-off region.
TNPL Twitter handle uploaded the video on their account and as soon as they posted, the video started receiving good reactions. In case, if you haven’t watched it, here’ the video below:
