In the days leading up to the retention deadline on Tuesday, rumours that Rajasthan Royals would be releasing Ravichandran Ashwin spread like wildfire over the internet. After some time had passed, the franchise used Twitter to mock those individuals who had believed the untrue rumours.
On Tuesday, each of the ten teams competing in the Indian Premier Competition (IPL) made public the list of players they had kept and those they had let go, laying the groundwork for the 2023 season of the Twenty20 league.
On social media, speculation spread like wildfire that the Rajasthan Royals would be releasing spinner Ravichandran Ashwin not long before the deadline. When the list was finally presented, it was discovered that the Royals have decided to keep Ashwin on their roster.
The franchise later used Twitter to taunt individuals who had believed the rumours and expected Ashwin would be returned to the auction pool as a result of the rumor’s circulation.
Despite the fact that Ashwin did not have a particularly successful T20 World Cup 2022, he continues to play a crucial role for the Royals in the Indian Premier League.
As a matter of fact, Ashwin was able to secure a spot for India in both the 2021 and 2022 editions of the Twenty20 World Cup thanks to his efforts in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
After deciding to keep Ravichandran Ashwin with the team for the 2023 season, the Rajasthan Royals tweeted a picture of him on their Twitter account. The text that appeared in the caption said, “Did you actually think?”
