India’s senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took two wickets in his first over for Delhi Capitals against Kings XI Punjab but at the end of the same over he injured his shoulder and he had to leave the field.
Ashwin was bowling in the last over of the powerplay. He dismissed Karun Nair and Nicholas Pooran in the same over. But when he dived in an attempt to stop a run on the last ball he got injured his shoulder. Ashwin was painfully upset and walked out of the ground along with Delhi physio Patrick.
Earlier it was looking that he may be ruled out of the tournament. But now in the post-match presentation Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer has confirmed that Ashwin is fine and he will be ready for the next game. Here is what he said,
“I briefly spoke to Ashwin, and Ashwin said he’ll be ready for the next game, but at the end of the day it’s the physio’s decision. He [Ashwin] is a strong-minded guy, and hopefully, he’ll be available.”
