Earlier, Ravichandran Ashwin, who had additionally run-out Jos Buttler in the course of the 2019 Indian Premier League on the non-striker’s finish, had given an fascinating tackle operating out a batter on the non-striker’s finish after the Deepti Sharma incident.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ashwin spoke about the subject material intimately, and earlier than straight talking in regards to the incident, the off-spinner mentioned: “In the beginning, the whole world saw it that way. But now, most of them have started realising that the bowlers didn’t commit any crime there. Many of them have started asking why you are asking questions to the innocent instead of asking the person who should be guilty. Only a certain section of the people seems to have a problem with this.”
“In my opinion, they always play the victim card. But whenever there is something new happening, there will be some resistance to change by a few people and that is understandable,” he added.
Further speaking in regards to the incident, Ashwin mentioned: “Yes, I am talking about the run-out at the non-striker’s end done by Deepti Sharma dismissing Charlie Dean. I have already spoken enough on this subject already. So let me be short and sweet today. Risk vs Reward. Just like how a batter knows when he steps out of the crease against a spinner or a pacer that a wicketkeeper can dismiss them by stumping. Likewise, a non-striker should also know that he can be dismissed run-out legitimately if they keep stepping out of the crease and taking that extra yard.”
“We should teach the kids right from when they are young on this. Because in today’s world of competitive cricket, I spoke about this during the Ahmedabad Test match when the pitch issue’ was brought up on what was a good pitch. I told ‘do not control the narratives’.
Because a certain section of people consciously chooses to instill in others how they should think about a certain thing. They control their narratives. There are many articles on this exact subject. In fact, I see this as a bowler’s revolution,” he said.
