Ashwin Breaks Punjab Momentum With Two Wickets In IPL 2020
Ravichandran Ashwin: If you go back to the IPL 2020 match played between Punjab and Delhi, you will see the name of Ashwin popping out among the bowlers. Ashwin was the captain of Punjab last season, but he is now part of the Delhi team under Shreyas Iyer. Delhi needs wickets from the word go after managing to put 157 on the board. Ashwin came over to bowl in the first over itself and took the momentum away from Punjab. In that one over, he took two wickets and gave away just a single run.
Ashwin Injures His Shoulder In The Very First Over Against Punjab
Now if you look back at the match summary, you will notice that Ashwin bowled only one over. Maybe things would have completely turned for Delhi without the need of a super over, had Ashwin bowled the remaining three overs. However, after taking two wickets, he also injured himself in the same over itself. He injured his shoulders and left the field for treatment. However, he never returned for the rest of the match and ended the match with two wickets in an over.
Is IPL 2020 Over For Ashwin
The fact that Ashwin did not return to play the rest of the game against Punjab comes with a big question mark. Will Ashwin sit out for the rest of the IPL? Ashwin looked seriously injured when he left the field and would be disappointed to injure himself in the very first over itself. He was itching to get back to the field after a long break due to coronavirus. If he cannot play the rest of the season, then it would be a big blow for Delhi as he proved his worth from the only over that he bowled against Punjab.
Rishabh Pant Not Learning From His Lessons
Rishabh Pant got out in his inning against spinner Bishnoi. He was regularly trying to swing the ball without reading the turn and eventually got bowled. At this point, the Delhi team expects him to play with some maturity.
