New Delhi, July 28
India’s premier spinner Ravichandran Ashwin needs know-how for use to trace the batsman on the non-striker’s finish who’s backing up too far, which he believes is an unfair benefit for the batting facet.
Ashwin has at all times been constant about his stand and steered that the know-how used to examine entrance foot no balls may be additionally used to maintain a tab on non-strikers backing up even earlier than the bowler reaches the popping crease.
“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 put forth his view level in a sequence of tweets.
Ashwin has been one of many largest advocates of ‘Mankading’ and his dismissal of Jos Buttler throughout Kings XI Punjab’s IPL encounter towards Rajasthan Royals grabbed the headlines final 12 months.
“Many of you will be unable to see the grave disparity right here, so let me take a while out to make clear to the perfect of my talents.
“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,” he stated.
“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,” he defined elaborately.
For Ashwin, it’s all about restoring the stability between bat and ball in a sport that’s loaded closely in favour of willow wielders.
“It is time to restore the balance in what is an increasingly tough environment for the bowlers,” he stated.
Technology will not be a hindrance, feels Ashwin.
“We can use the same tech that we are proposing for a no ball check 120 balls in a T20 game,” stated Ashwin. PTI
