Ashwin gave a befitting reply to the fan
After this tweet, Ashwin has given a befitting reply to that fan. Responding to the fan’s tweet, Ashwin wrote, ‘If a batsman goes out of the crease, I will not hold back from doing it again. I would like to take your permission to do this, because if a bowler needs to run out a batsman like this, he needs to think again and hopefully, you will accept it and my parents Will not tell you about it.
I would do it again if a batsmen goes out of the crease. I would also like to seek your permission to do the same cos if a bowler needs to run a batter out that way, he/she needs to premeditate the same and hopefully you will approve of the same and not tell my parents about it. https://t.co/tGbMZuQFXc
