India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Tuesday got here up with a singular suggestion to ‘restore balance’ for bowlers in cricket. Ashwin garnered lot of media consideration last 12 months after he ‘Mankaded’ Jos Buttler throughout an IPL game between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals. The debate over whether or not dismissing a batsman on this vogue is within the spirit of the sport or not grew to become a discourse over the subsequent couple of months, however Ashwin has all the time been resolute in the direction of his level that he did nothing that’s towards the principles.

On Tuesday, in a collection of tweets, Ashwin got here up with the thought to develop a automation which might spot if a batsman is backing up earlier than the bowler bowls a ball. “Just hope that technology will see if a batsmen is backing up before the bowler bowls a ball and disallow the runs of that ball every time the batter does so!!Thus, parity will be restored as far as the front line is concerned,” Ashwin mentioned.

Ashwin’s suggestion got here a day after ICC introduced that TV umpires might be calling front-foot no balls in all of the ODI games that might be performed below ODI World Cup Super League.

The bowler went on to additional clarify his level. “Many of you will not be able to see the grave disparity here, so let me take some time out to clarify to the best of my abilities. If the non striker backs up 2 feet and manages to come back for a 2, he will put the same batsmen on strike for the next ball.

Putting the same batsmen on strike might cost me a 4 or a 6 from the next ball and eventually cost me 7 more runs instead of may be a 1 and a dot ball possibility at a different batsmen. The same will mean massively for a batter wanting to get off strike even in a test match.

“It is time to restore the balance in what is an increasingly tough environment for the bowlers,” the bowler additional added.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Ashwin spoke of the lows and the highs—opening up on the previous and in addition his plans for the long run as soon as Indian cricket resumes. “One feels dejected and disappointed when dropped. But that is how sport is. This happens. Take the recent example of Stuart Broad. He was dropped from the first Test against the West Indies and ended up making a great comeback in the next game. I too have swung between those extremes. Either I take five-wicket hauls or I get dropped. I just don’t let the negativity get to me,” the bowler mentioned.
