India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin says he has spoken to his IPL coach Ricky Ponting on the contentious concern of working out batsmen who again up too far on the non-striker’s finish however will reveal the contents of the telephonic dialog solely subsequent week. The concern turned a speaking level when Ponting, head coach of Ashwin’s workforce Delhi Capitals, stated he would have a dialogue with the India spinner concerning the controversial method of dismissing a batsman forward of the IPL 2020 beginning September 19 within the UAE.
Ashwin ran out England batsman Jos Buttler on the non-striker’s finish final season when he backed up too far, drawing criticism for his act as many known as it in opposition to the ‘spirit of the sport’.
While Ashwin has reached Dubai, Ponting is ready to reach subsequent week and the 2 will speak in particular person earlier than the Indian reveals what transpired between them.
“Ricky Ponting hasn’t yet reached (Dubai). After he comes, we will sit for a chat with him. He said he wants to have a conversation. We have already talked over the phone. It was a very interesting chat,” Ashwin stated on his YouTube channel.
Ashwin stated it is higher to have a face-to-face dialog because the message of the heavily-accented Australians can get misplaced in translation.
“What happens sometimes is Australians’ messages in English get lost in translation and reach us with a different meaning. Even some of their jokes become news. That’s what it is and next week I will reveal a bit more about my conversation with Ricky.”
Ponting had stated he could have a “hard conversation” with Ashwin and will not enable him to repeat the act at Delhi Capitals because it was “not within the spirit of the game”.
On Monday, Ashwin prompt the introduction of a “free ball” for bowlers if non-strikers again up too far, sticking to his stand that there was nothing incorrect with working such batsmen out.
“Make it a free ball for the bowler. If the batsmen gets out of that ball, the batting team will be docked 5 runs. Free hit adds to the drama for a batter, let’s give a chance to the bowlers too,” Ashwin had tweeted.
When a twitter consumer asserted that the sport is primarily for batsmen, Ashwin retorted, “Then take the run out on your chin and stay in!!!!”.
