Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has never been one to take himself too seriously, always up for a laugh on and off the field. And ahead of the pink ball Test in Kolkata, Ashwin posted a video of himself bowling left-handed that had Twitter in splits.
Initially, there was a different video of a lower quality that was circulating of Ashwin rolling over his left-arm during practice. As if right on cue, Ashwin then posted the following video.
Alright people !! Let’s put an end to this fun you are all having with a poor quality video being circulated on the social media. Here is a good one.😂😂😂✅ pic.twitter.com/LMZZBASTbc— Ashwin Ravichandran (@ashwinravi99) November 18, 2019
In the past, Ashwin has also tried his luck at leg-spin, having bowled as many as three balls during an over while playing for KXIP against Delhi Daredevils in the IPL and also mixed it up in a similar manner while playing for Nottinghamshire in the English county championship.
His variations with the ball will no doubt be important as India aim to win their first ever pink ball Test match that begins at the Eden Gardens later this week against Bangladesh.
