Delhi Capitals Back Ravichandran Ashwin After Shane Warne’s “Disgraceful” Jibe

Delhi Capitals leapt to Ravichandran Ashwin’s defence after Australian spin legend Shane Warne slammed the star all-rounder’s “disgraceful” single in a feisty Indian Premier League encounter. Ashwin had a verbal exchange with Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan and Tim Southee after he grabbed an extra run following a throw that ricocheted off his partner Rishabh Pant’s arm. Usually a batsman avoids a run when the ball from a fielder hits him and deviates away because it is seen as against the spirit of cricket, although there are no rules stopping the batter getting the runs.

The retired Warne, who led Rajasthan Royals to victory in the inaugural edition of the popular Twenty20 tournament in 2008, told his 3.6 million followers on Twitter: “The world shouldn’t be divided on this topic and Ashwin. “It’s pretty simple — it’s disgraceful and should never happen

Why does Ashwin have to be that guy again? I think (Morgan) had every right to nail him!”

But Delhi co-owner Parth Jindal hit back as he recalled the 2019 World Cup final when England were awarded four runs after Martin Guptill’s throw for New Zealand deflected off Ben Stokes’ bat to the boundary.
