The encounter between Murali Vijay and R Ashwin in yesterday’s TNPL game deserves some attention. Then the result, what left the audience amused is their style of play. It all happened in the 16th over of the first innings.
R Ashwin was spotted trying some unusual deliveries to Vijay. It is worth noting that even a few games ago, he wasn’t utilizing the movement of the other arm. He replicated the same yesterday as Vijay also tried something different. Trying for a switch hit, he turned into a left-handed batsman. However, the umpire declared it a no-ball. Vijay, who was already in a good nick dispatched the next delivery for a six.
Murali Vijay was in a fine form in this edition of the league, scoring three consecutive half-centuries. However, none of them turned out to be on a winning cause for Ruby Warriors. Ashwin’s Dindigul Dragons are currently ruling the points table with 5 out of 5 wins.
The video of this small encounter has been posted by the official page of TNPL and is currently trending on social media.

Whenever the Indian stars meet in leagues, their battle turns intriguing. When Dinesh Karthik faced Ashwin a few days ago, he had no clue to tackle it. The latter ended up knocking down the stumps of Karthik.
Ashwin even hailed Karthik as one of the best batsmen he has seen and tweeted the video on his handle.
