TATA IPL 2022: “IPL is a research lab for Ash Anna,” R Ashwin leaves netizens in split for his debatable batting stance

Rajasthan Royals faced Delhi Capitals on Wednesday, at D.Y Patil Stadium, Mumbai. Once again Ashwin was sent to bat at one down by the management. Ashwin came up with a unique and amusing batting stance against DC, which took Twitter by fire.

TATA IPL 2022 so far has been a great year for Rajasthan Royals. The team got the best picks from the Mega-Auction 2022 and is in third place in the points table with 7 wins. The bowling order has been magnificent for the team throughout the season. The only issue Rajasthan has faced this year is with their batting strength in the middle order. To toughen their middle order, the team has been seen sending R. Ashwin at one down in the previous through matches. This doesn’t only give depth to Rajasthan’s batting order but gives Ashwin freedom to play his shots at the top order as a pinch-hitter. Although the plan hasn’t worked well so far for the side, the fans are thoroughly entertained by R. Ashwin’s batting approach.

On Wednesday, Ashwin came up with a unique yet amusing stance, which took Twitter by fire. The fans were seen reacting to Ashwin batting with a stance, where his arms and bat are very close to the ground. This type of stance was seen for the very first time in International cricket.

Here’s how the fans reacted to it:
