Ravichandran Ashwin is one the smartest cricketers around the globe and very few give it back when he applies different strategies and techniques to dismiss the batters. Thus, the Chepauk crowd found it spectacular when Ajinkya Rahane sought his vengeance against the off-spinner.

While chasing a target of 176 runs against Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings had crossed the 60-run mark by the end of eight overs. CSK have a difficult task ahead of them as they will have to chase a decent total while facing a bowling unit including quality spinners. It has been an intense game so far but one moment during the sixth over of the second innings thrilled the fans the most. 

Ravichandran Ashwin was bowling the sixth over and he decided to adopt different tactics to disturb the concentration of the batter. While bowling the second ball, he aborted his follow through midway after seeing Rahane charging down the wicket. However, the rivalry didn’t just stop there as Rahane responded in a manner Ashwin wouldn’t have expected. 

A few moments later, local boy Ashwin got ready to bowl the delivery but this time it was the batter’s turn. Rahane decided to move away and abort the delivery. That got the crowd going and they cheered for the veteran Indian batter who was up against the local lad. The Twitterati also expressed their sentiments after Ashwin was treated in the same manner he has treated his opponent.  

Home boy tastes his own medicine at home!
