Ashwin 50: Came at number three, hit fours and sixes, Ravichandran Ashwin hit the first fifty of IPL career


New Delhi: India’s number one off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin scored a blistering half-century against Delhi Capitals in the IPL on Wednesday night. Ashwin, who came at number three, was showing Jauhar like a specialist batsman. This is also Ashwin’s first half-century in tournament history. Ashwin, who scored 50 runs in 37 balls, was dismissed as soon as he hit a half-century. In this 38-ball innings, he hit four fours and two sixes with his bat.

Was promoted to number three

Ashwin, who has scored five centuries in Test cricket, knows how to bat well, it is not hidden from anyone, but this is the first time that he has scored fifty in any T20 format match including IPL. Captain Sanju Samson made a big bet today after the in-form opener Jos Buttler was dismissed. Sent Ravichandran Ashwin up to bat in his place. Usually, Ashnin, who comes at number six or seven, was promoted earlier as well, but today he had come up with something else.


Weird stance again set color

Ravichandran was also seen batting with a strange style. Seeing the awkward stance, even the commentators could not stop laughing. In the match, Ashwin hit two fours in the opening over of Shardul Thakur. He didn’t stop here. In the next over of Axar Patel, he made his score 21 runs in 13 balls by hitting four fours and then six in the next over. The advantage of this was that despite a slow start, Rajasthan added 43 runs in six overs of the powerplay. Rajasthan’s 100 runs were completed in the 14th over and in the same over, Ashwin made his top score in T20 by hitting a boundary with an uppercut off Sakariya. After this he also completed half century. In the next over, he was caught by David Warner after playing a poor shot off a delivery from Marsh.
