IPL 2024: Former great of Indian Cricket said, “Ravi Ashwin is scared of….”

Ravichandran Ashwin, despite all the talk about his skills, hasn’t been doing well for Rajasthan Royals in the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL). In the beginning, when Rajasthan Royals won matches, nobody really paid attention to Ashwin’s not-so-good performance. They won four matches in a row and nobody really talked about how Ashwin was doing.

But then, during a game against Gujarat Titans, Shahrukh Khan hit Ashwin for a six and a four. That’s when everyone noticed that Ashwin wasn’t bowling well.

In the five matches he played, Ashwin only managed to get one wicket. His bowling average was 160, and his economy rate was 8.42. These numbers are not good for a top spinner like him. The batters found it easy to play against him.

Padam, who is a commentator for this IPL season, talked about Ashwin’s difficulties. Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was sitting next to him, criticized Ashwin. He said Ashwin wasn’t trying to take wickets; instead, he was just trying to stop the batters from scoring runs.

Sidhu said, “He’s scared of getting hit by the batters. That’s why he’s not trying to take wickets. A top bowler like Ashwin should be trying to get wickets, not just trying to stop the batters from scoring.”

In the match against Gujarat Titans, Ashwin gave away 40 runs in his four overs and didn’t take any wickets. This affected Rajasthan Royals’ chances of winning. Gujarat Titans chased down the target of 197 runs and won the match on the last ball, with Rashid Khan hitting a four.

Because of Ashwin’s poor performance, there’s a possibility that he might be dropped from the team in the upcoming matches. This would be a big decision for the team management as they need to find someone who can perform better than Ashwin in the upcoming games. It’s not just about Ashwin’s individual performance; it’s also about what’s best for the team’s success in the tournament.

The fans are also disappointed with Ashwin’s performance. They were expecting him to be one of the key players for Rajasthan Royals this season, but he hasn’t lived up to their expectations so far. They hope that Ashwin can improve his performance in the remaining matches of the tournament and help Rajasthan Royals win more games.

Overall, Ashwin’s performance in the IPL 2024 has been disappointing for Rajasthan Royals and their fans. They need him to step up and deliver better performances in the upcoming matches if they want to have a chance of winning the tournament.
