If people don’t come out of crease, I will use it to my advantage: Ashwin | Cricket News


MELBOURNE: Even when a batsman ran out at the non-striker’s end, it was deemed “unfair play”. ICC‘s manual, Ravichandran Ashwin stuck to his guns. But, on a lighter note, the off-spinner admitted that even he doesn’t like being dismissed that way.
Many players said that they will not come out of the crease and Ashwin is confident that he can use it to his advantage.
“It’s fine. I mean, if people are going to come out and say they won’t do it, as a cricketer, I will use that as an advantage for myself,” Ashwin said on the eve of India’s T20 World Cup match against Zimbabwe on Sunday.
Ashwin, who has run out batsmen several times for holding back too far at the non-striker’s end, also supported women’s team player Deepti Sharma as she dismissed the last England batsman during India’s series in the UK.
“Honestly, I wouldn’t want to come out that much either just because I don’t like it – it’s not like I can’t come out like that,” Ashwin said.
Then he pulled out the famous terse Ashwin humor.
“So, nobody likes to get out. I don’t like to be bowled, bowled, run out in any way. I wouldn’t like to be run out at the non-striker’s end either because it is a form of dismissal, and it is quite legal,” Ashwin said.
Ashwin feels that for a mode of dismissal like this, there will be conflicting views.
“Look, there’s not a lot of arguments around it. Like with anything else in this world, when some things happen, you’re going to have people with conflicting thoughts.
“Whether you want to do it or not is absolutely fine. It’s good to know they won’t do it because you can run at the last minute, and you can wait,” he said.
