Ravichandran Ashwin will be aiming to play a big part in the upcoming four-match Test series, which begins from December 17. On Monday, the spinner put on a show in the ongoing practice match between Australia A and Indians. During Day 2 of the tour game, Ashwin bowled while wearing his cap. Wearing a cap and bowling is a sight not seen very often in cricket and became a hot topic of discussion on Twitter. Australia cricketer Lisa Sthalekar shared a video of Ashwin bowling in a cap and grabbing the dismissal of Marcus Harris. She captioned it as, “Love Smiling face with heart-shaped eyes this….not the dismissal of Harris, but that @ashwinravi99 is bowling in a cap!! Btw sharp catch by @ajinkyarahane88”. Here is the video:


Meanwhile, even ICC took to social media to publicize the incident. They posted a photo and captioned it as, “Have you ever seen a player bowling in a cap before?”

Here are the fan reactions:

Not just with his fashion statement, Ashwin made an impression with the ball in hand, taking two wickets after the lunch break. Australia A are replying to India A’s first innings total of 247/9 declared.

Ashwin got Harris caught by Ajinkya Rahane for his first dismissal. For his second wicket, he sent Nic Maddinson back to the pavilion via a lbw.

Earlier, India A captain Ajinkya Rahane declared when his side was at 247 for nine. The Delhi Capitals (DC) batsman was unbeaten at 117 from 242 balls. He slammed 18 fours and a six.
