TNPL 2023: Ravichandran Ashwin’s Unconventional Twice DRS On The Same Ball, Watch Video

Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is known for his unique style and knack for creating excitement on the cricket field. Whether it’s his sudden change in bowling action or his warning to batsmen straying out of their crease, Ashwin always adds an element of surprise to the game. However, his recent Tamil Nadu Premier League action has left fans perplexed and intrigued.

During a match between Dindigul Dragons, led by Ashwin, and Trichy, something unusual happened that caught everyone’s attention. Having bowled first, Dindigul restricted Trichy to a score of 120 runs. In his role as captain and bowler, Ashwin performed well, taking two wickets during the match. But it was an incident during his bowling spell that raised eyebrows.

In the 13th over of Trichy’s innings, Trichy batsman Rajkumar played a shot, resulting in an appeal for a catch. The on-field umpire gave him out, but Rajkumar challenged the decision by taking the Decision Review System (DRS). The subsequent replay revealed that the ball had not made contact with the bat but had hit the pitch instead. Consequently, the third umpire overturned the decision and declared Rajkumar not out.

Surprisingly, Ashwin was dissatisfied with the third umpire’s decision and decided to challenge it through DRS himself. The TV umpire reviewed the replay once again, but the decision remained the same this time, and Rajkumar was declared not out again. Ashwin had to accept the decision and continue with the game.

In the final over of the match, Rajkumar responded to the turn of events by hitting three fours and a six off Ashwin’s bowling. Despite this setback, Ashwin managed to take two wickets for 26 runs in his four overs. His team, Dindigul Dragons, emerged victorious in the match, securing a six-wicket win.

Ashwin’s unconventional DRS review has sparked discussions among cricket enthusiasts, with many curious about his motivations and thoughts behind the decision. While his action may have surprised some, it highlights his passion and competitiveness, always looking for ways to challenge and influence the game.
