R Ashwin, a veteran cricketer for India, is not just a bowler of the highest calibre or a capable hitter, but he is also an exceptionally bright individual.
R Ashwin is not only prepared to remove the batsmen he is going up against on the cricket pitches by doing his studies, but he is also able to shut off haters on social media by using his knowledge.
Ashwin was subjected to harassment and abuse on many social media platforms, despite the fact that he was India’s batting hero in the second test match, which his team won by three wickets against Bangladesh. However, the attempt of a fan to insult the Indian off-spinner backfired when the senior cricketer decided to respond to the fan’s comment.
In an attempt to tease R Ashwin, a fan tweeted, “You should have handed this to Mominul Haque, Who dropped that dolly.. had he bagged it, India would have been all out for 89 for sure.”
In response, R Ashwin penned the following: “Oh no ! I was under the impression that I had blocked you; nevertheless, that appears to be another individual. Where do I find out his name? Yes, Daniel Alexander is the correct spelling of your name! Consider what you and your opponent would do if India did not participate in cricket.”
After the match, R Ashwin gave an interview to the broadcaster in which he conceded that Bangladesh had exerted a significant amount of pressure on the visitors in the second Test.
“The quality of the pitches is fairly high here. However, it seemed to me that the ball became less firm quite fast. Bangladesh deserves credit; at various points, they were able to exert a significant amount of pressure on us “said Ashwin.
When Bangladesh had India seven wickets down for 74 runs in the first session of the fourth day, with Shreyas Iyer and Ravichandran Ashwin at the crease, it appeared as though Bangladesh had almost ensured that they would win the match.
Despite this, the Indian squad was able to pull through and finish the run chase with three wickets left in the game. In doing so, they took a commanding 2-0 lead in the series.
On the fourth day of the match, Ashwin (42 not out) and Shreyas Iyer (29 not out) put together an unbeaten 71-run partnership for the eighth wicket to help India seal a 2-0 victory in the series against Bangladesh.
The standout performer for Bangladesh was Mehidy Hasan Miraz, who finished with a five-wicket haul; however, Bangladesh’s overall performance was unsuccessful. India’s victory in the test series against Bangladesh marked the country’s 16th consecutive victory in Asia.
