Dubai: In the match between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2020, the youth-laden Delhi Capitals won and beat RCB by 59 runs. With this victory, Delhi has made it to the top of the points table. In this match, Delhi veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (R. Ashwin) did something due to which he is trending on social media and his video is going viral.
In the IPL match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Ashwin got a chance for manning, although he did not dismiss the batsman. In the past, Ashwin has done that before bowling the ball, the batsmen who left the crease at the bowling end have been dismissed.

Bangalore opener Aaron Finch was at the crease and in the third over of the RCB innings, Ashwin had the opportunity to finish Finch. But he left Finch just by giving instructions and then laughed. During this time, Delhi coach Ricky Ponting, who was sitting in the dugout, also could not stop himself and he was also seen laughing.

Let me tell you that there were differences between Ashwin and Ponting before the tournament on the controversial issue of Mankanding. Actually in the 2019 IPL, Ashwin had mocked Rajasthan Royals batsman Jos Buttler after which he was also criticized a lot.
