In a crucial match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings, Ravichandran Ashwin was the star attraction once again. However, this time it was for a different reason altogether. While Ashwin had a great start, taking two wickets, he had a tough time in the 14th over, where he was hit for two consecutive sixes by Shivam Dube.
It all started with the 13.1 ball when Ashwin bowled a tossed-up delivery to Shivam Dube. Dube, who was waiting for such an opportunity, used his reach and smashed the ball over long-on for a six. It was a meaty connection that sent the ball sailing over the ropes.
Ashwin tried to make a comeback in the next delivery by going quicker and shorter, but Dube was up for the challenge. He rocked back and nailed the pull shot beyond the deep mid-wicket fence for another six.
