Watch: Ravichandran Ashwin Yet Again Comes Up With A Bizzare Action
And again, the off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin comes up with a new bowling action in the ongoing Tamil Nadu Premier League 2019. Recently, we saw Ashwin bowling with no movement to his left hand, which took the fans to surprise. Now, he comes up with yet another bizarre action.
Over the years, we’ve seen plenty of players with unorthodox bowling actions. From South Africa’s Paul Adams, Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, Pakistan’s Sohail Tanveer to India’s very own Jasprit Bumrah – they all enjoyed success in their careers despite their unusual styles. Meanwhile, Ashwin is trying a bit of a similar thing.
Ravichandran Ashwin is the skipper of Dindigul Dragons:
Recently, Ashwin delivered the ball without a full action, while his non-bowling arm remained unmoved, and he completed the run-up by releasing the white on the wrong foot (left foot). His unpredictable delivery did not cause any damage to the chasing team but it certainly did catch the attention.
Now, once again, he unleashed a bizarre mystery ball during Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) match between Dindigul Dragons and Madurai Panthers. And surprisingly, he even picked up a wicket on the delivery.
It was in the fourth ball of the final over of the innings. Ashwin hid the ball behind his back during the run-up, before releasing a flighted ball whilst keeping his other arm motionless. The extra flighted action and the slowish nature of the ball left the batsman puzzled as he miscued his shot straight to the fielder at long-off.
This has become a regular to Ashwin. The 32-year-old is known to experiment with his craft and doesn’t hesitate before slipping in leg-spinners or even medium-pace deliveries just to mix things up. Not just that, he even keeps switching between a front-arm and an open-chested action to confuse batsmen.
