Australia’s legendary bowler Shane Warne, who once helped Rajasthan Royals win an IPL tournament, gave a big taunt to Indian all-rounder star Ravichandran Ashwin, where he said, “The world is not divided over this topic and Ashwin. It’s very simple.. This is very Disgraceful. It should never happen.”
Shane Warne, who won the IPL T20 match for Rajasthan Royals in 2008, said this about Ravichandran Ashwin when he ran after ricochets to get an extra run.
The issue heated up when the second leg of IPL T20 2021 between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders was going on, and at that time the ball went away by separating Rishabh Pant’s side, and Ravichandran Ashwin scored an extra run on top of it. After which Ravichandran Ashwin had a conversation with Kolkata Knight Riders captain Eoin Morgan and Team Southee.
Generally when a batsman is scoring runs and when the ball runs away from his side, he does not score runs on that bowl, as it is considered unethical. But there is no such rule that he cannot take runs. It is seen against the spirit of cricket. But there is no such rule to not hurt these sentiments.
When Ravichandran Ashwin did this and as a result or as a result, as a reaction, Shane Warne taunted him and called his action “outrageous”, then Parth Jindal came to his rescue, Parth Jindal is the co-owner of Delhi Capitals. Due to this, he reminded Shane Warne that, “During the World Cup final, when Ben Stokes got a boundary from the cobble after a throw from Martin Guptill, then Ben Stokes got 4 runs at that time”.
In defense of Ravichandran Ashwin, Party Jindal said, “There is no problem when Ben Stokes is given four extra runs after ricochets with the ball to win the 50-over World Cup, but if Ravichandran Ashwin when If he takes an extra run, then there is upheaval in the whole world. This is a very different kind of hypocrisy. I am with you Ravichandran Ashwin.”
This tweet was done by Parth Jindal on 30 September 2021 at 8:58 AM.
Delhi Capitals captain Pant said that the run was done in the spirit of the game and he told incident Copart and parcel on Tuesday that the match was being played in the United Arab Emirates.
Kolkata Knight Riders wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik tried to calm the players’ anger and he told reporters, “I don’t think Morgan will appreciate it at all because when a ball hits the batsman’s bat, it hits his hands.” If it collides with someone else in the body, it is expected from that batsman that he will not run for runs in this situation; it is a very gray area of cricket.”
Dinesh Karthik said, “I feel like this is a very gray area and that is why it becomes a very interesting topic as well. Everyone may have their own opinion on this, I have my own opinion but I am happy that I have played a role as a peace ambassador”.
