RR vs GT: Watch – RR’s Experiment With Ravichandran Ashwin Fails; Gets Dismissed For 8

Rajasthan Royals (RR) promoted Ravichandran Ashwin up to No. 3 against the Gujarat Titans (GT) in an experiment at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Thursday. Unfortunately for them, it failed to pay dividends.

GT was set a formidable target of 193 by the Rajasthan franchise courtesy of a stunning 52-ball 87 from Hardik Pandya. He was well aided by cameos from Abhinav Manohar and David Miller.

In response, RR began brilliantly with Jos Buttler scoring 44 of the 45 runs in the powerplay. Devdutt Padikkal was dismissed for a golden duck which saw Ashwin stride out to the crease in a surprise move.

He scored a massive six off Rashid Khan but his innings was cut short by Lockie Ferguson, who struck on his very first delivery. Ashwin smashed a full delivery towards cover-point where David Miller hung on to a brilliant reflex catch low towards his left.

He walked back after scoring 8 (8) and the experiment that failed to make sense ended up backfiring. Nevertheless, Buttler at the other end kept going and completed his fifty.
