Ravichandran Ashwin took to Instagram to share a hilarious picture featuring various “actions for off-spin bowlers”. A fan created a collage from pictures showing Ashwin, Graeme Swann and Ramesh Powar in their delivery stride. Funnily, he also sneaked in a picture of actor Katrina Kaif striking a dance pose that was strikingly similar to a bowler’s delivery action. Ashwin posted the meme on his Instagram story and tagged former India spinner Ramesh Powar and ex-England bowler Graeme Swann.
Ashwin will be playing for Delhi Capitals this year after leading Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the previous two seasons.
The Delhi-based franchise roped in Ashwin after a successful trade with KXIP ahead of the annual player action in December last year.
Ashwin has played 139 IPL matches so far and the off-spinner has picked up 125 wickets at an average of 26.43 and economy rate of 6.79.
Delhi Capitals have included the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Ashwin and Marcus Stoinis as they look to win their maiden IPL title this year.
