Ravichandran Ashwin is an off-spinner who loves his variations. From carrom balls to straighter ones to even leg-spinners, for Ashwin deliveries are available in all kinds and strategies. Ashwin has been seen bowling wrist spin with a barely tweaked motion previously but it surely looks as if he has blended it into his typical motion this time as seen in a video launched by his Indian Premier League (IPL) crew Delhi Capitals. Ashwin is seen bowling a leg break to a Delhi Capitals batsman within the nets within the video captioned “@ashwinravi99 and his variations are getting ready for September 20.”

Ashwin was traded from Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) forward of the IPL 2020 auctions in December final 12 months. A veteran of 139 IPL matches, Ashwin has picked up 125 wickets at an financial system price of 6.79 runs per over.
The former KXIP captain had courted controversy final season when he ran out Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler on the non-striker’s finish earlier than the ball was bowled.
Also referred as ‘Mankading,’ the dismissal drew criticism from some for being towards the Spirit of Cricket and the Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting stated within the lead-up to this season that he is not going to permit such a observe at Delhi.
Ashwin responded by saying he had an “interesting” chat with Ponting on the contentious topic and later revealed the contents of the chat the place Ponting urged a 10-run penalty for the batting aspect each time a batsman tried to steal floor on the non-striker’s finish, which Ponting stated was “basically cheating”.
