Twitter went buzzing over Ravichandran Ashwin after his magnificent one-over show against Kings XI Punjab. Some started calling it ‘ex-factor’, and some definitely seemed concerned for his shoulder dislocation.
Ravichandran Ashwin was traded to Delhi Capitals after captaining Kings XI Punjab for the last couple of seasons. His off-spins were doing the job modestly but his captaincy did not please the franchise management. KL Rahul was made the new captain of the side ahead of IPL 2020 season and Ashwin was traded to the Delhi based franchise. Interestingly, Ashwin’s first IPL match for Delhi Capitals was against his former franchise in Dubai today.
Ashwin came, bowled only one over, and almost finished hopes of KXIP. He took two major wickets of Karun Nair (1) and Nicholas Pooran (0) when KXIP needed them the most. KXIP were chasing down 158 and started to struggle from the very beginning. Ashwin, the warrior showed up at the occasion and delivered a miraculous over conceding only two runs. But unfortunately, on the last delivery of the same over, he jumped to save a ball hit by Glenn Maxwell. He dived on his left shoulder and injured himself. He had to leave the ground in no time but he left everyone awestruck by his caliber yet again.
Here’s how Twitterati reacts on Ravichandran Ashwin’s Injury
Hope it isn't too bad with Ashwin. The ball was coming out beautifully.

Almost cruel … Starts a new journey, gets two wickets in his first over and then that freak injury.. An update on Ashwin will take time, but seemed like a lot of pain and was he visibly quite gutted .. looked quite serious but I really hope that’s not the case… 🤞🏻🤞🏻 #DCvKXIP

Oh Dear.. Ash. That was too far. There is no need to dive for it. Changed the match and hurt himself for nothing. #Ashwin. Hope it's not bad as it looked in visuals.
