On Monday, during the match between Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Ravichandran Ashwin left everyone stunned when he let go of a chance to run out opponent Aaron Finch at the non-striker’s end.
Chasing a target of 197 runs, RCB needed a good start from the openers Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch. As both the cricketers were struggling to set their feet, Ravichandran Ashwin was introduced in the third over of the game. The moment happened on the fourth ball of the over as Ashwin ran into his delivery stride, rolled his arm over but did not deliver the ball as he saw Aaron Finch walking out of the crease.
Ravichandran Ashwin, who created a stir last year after he Mankaded Jos Buttler, had a very good opportunity to dismiss Aaron Finch right there using Mankad but the DC’s off-spinner chose not to.
Meanwhile, as soon as the hilarious moment took place, social media was flooded with hilarious reactions on it. While there were some who wanted Ashwin to do Mankad but many took it in a funny way and flooded social media with hilarious memes and jokes on the same.
Sometime later, R Ashwin also took to his twitter and posted a hilarious tweet, or rather we should say a funny warning for the batsmen in IPL 2020. He also asked people to not blame him later on. He wrote:
“Let’s make it clear !! First and final warning for 2020. I am making it official and don’t blame me later on. @RickyPonting #runout #nonstriker @AaronFinch5 and I are good buddies btw.”
