R Ashwin found himself in controversy recently after mankading Rajasthan Royals’ England based wicket-keeper-batsman, Jos Butler. Soon after his action, Ashwin became a meme material and also received criticism from so many people.
Now English cricketer, Ben Stokes has taken a dig at Ashwin and has dragged Virat Kohli into the discussion as well. Ben took to Twitter and posted the message without mentioning the name of Ashwin. He wrote-
Hopefully I’m playing in the World Cup final and if @imVkohli is batting when I’m bowling I would never ever ever ever ever ever…..just clarifying to the mentions I’ve received 😊 #hallabol
