Watch: Former Punjab Kings skipper Ashwin almost run-out current Punjab Kings captain at the non-striker end during RRvsPBKS


Fans witnessed an interesting moment during the 8th match of IPL 2023 played between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday (April 5) in Guwahati. The incident involved R Ashwin and Shikhar Dhawan.


During the seventh over of Punjab Kings’ innings, Ashwin stopped mid-way through his run-up upon realising that Dhawan appeared to be leaving his crease early.

However, Ashwin didn’t remove the bails and instead chose to stare at Dhawan, probably as a warning. When Dhawan noticed that Ashwin had seen him moving out of the crease, he quickly got back behind the crease.


It is worth noting that Ashwin’s controversial act of running out Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals for backing up too far as captain of Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) during IPL 2019 had created a huge controversy and divided opinions.


While some had supported him citing that run-out at the non-striker’s end is perfectly legal under the laws of the game, others had criticized his actions as against the spirit of the game.
