In IPL 2021, the Delhi Capitals team was eliminated after losing the Qualifier-2 match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Ravichandran Ashwin bowled the last over in this match, but he could not succeed in winning the team. In the last over, KKR needed seven runs to win. In this too, Ashwin, while bowling tightly, took two wickets in the first three balls. However, Rahul Tripathi hit a six off the fifth ball to give the KKR team victory.

Now former India cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has taken a jibe at Ashwin. He has said that in the last few years, Ashwin’s performance in T20 has not been good. He never keeps Ashwin in his team for the World Cup. Manjrekar said- We have talked a lot about Ashwin. Ashwin does not fit well in any team as a T20 bowler. He said- If you want Ashwin to change his bowling, then it cannot happen. He has been bowling like this for the last five-seven years. I can understand in Test cricket that Ashwin’s bowling is good. It was wrong to not give him a chance to play in a single Test in England, but he does not fit in T20. Manjrekar said that if the pitch has turn, then he would like to give a chance to a spinner in his team who can take wickets. He would never want a bowler who can only manage to stop runs. Ashwin has bowled similarly in IPL and T20 cricket in the last five-seven years. Manjrekar said- If the pitch is turning, then I would like to play bowlers like Varun Chakraborty or Sunil Narine or Yuzvendra Chahal. He can deliver better wickets than Ashwin. Ashwin is no longer a wicket-taker in T20 cricket. I don’t think the franchises want Ashwin in the team just because he can stop runs.
