Ravichandran Ashwin, the Indian spinner, knows how to make headlines even when he is not a part of the national squad. There is no denying the fact that Ashwin has contributed a lot to the Indian cricket and he is one of the best spinners that we have but still he keeps on doing things which perplex us and give us a feeling that he is absolutely unpredictable.
Last time, he created controversy when he mankaded the Rajasthan Royal’s batsman Jos Buttler in an IPL match. He was not wrong if we talk about the rules but mankading is considered against the spirit of the game and he was trolled heavily on the social media networks.
Ashwin is once again in news and this time it is for his unusual bowling action which he used in a match against Chepauk Super Gillies in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). He is leading Dindigul Dragons in the tournament and in the opening match, he promoted himself at no. 3 and scored 37 runs of just 19 balls.
Coming back to the weird bowling action, Ashwin bowled without moving his non-bowling arm and his run-up also got completed on the wrong foot. He did this when Chepauk Super Gillies needed 17 runs of just 2 balls and they had lost 9 wickets.

Earlier, Ashwin had a good time playing for Nottinghamshire in the County Championship Division One where he took 20 wickets and played some good knocks as well.
Till now, the 32 years old cricketer has represented the country in 65 Test matches, 111 ODIs and 46 T20Is. Hopefully we will see him playing more matches for the country.
