The Delhi Capitals recorded their sixth win of the season when they defeated the Rajasthan Royals in Indian Premier League 2022 match on wednesday. After limiting RR to 160/6 in 20 overs, DC chased the target with 11 balls in abundance, losing just two gates as Mitchell Marsh (89) and David Warner (52 *) forged a 144-run tripod for the second wicket to takes the Capitalses home.

Earlier, in RR’s striking changes, the side lost Jos Buttler’s early wicket because he was ruled out 7. As expected, RR promoted Ravichandran Ashwin to No. 3, which was the case this season whenever the side lost an early wicket in amendments. This time, however, Ashwin enjoyed a fruitful stay on the fold as he scored half a century of 38 balls and stabilized side substitutions alongside Yashasvi Jaiswal and Devdutt Padikkal.
The veteran Indian off-spinner is known for his innovations in the game, and during his 50-run knock, Ashwin didn’t shy away from practicing a rather strange stance as he faced Chinese spinner Kuldeep Yadava.
Ashwin was eventually rejected in the 15th overt match as he tried to clear the long line against Mitchell Marsh.
The strange striking attitude of the 35-year-old Indian cricketer sparked a meme-fest on Twitter:
Earlier with the ball Mitchell Marsh picked up two important gates of Yashasvi Jaiswal (19) and Ravichandran Ashwin (50). Looking confident after hitting several limits, including two highs and a shot from the ramp over Panta’s keeper, Ashwin did well and brought his half-century into 38 balls.
However, the main off-spinner came out shortly after reaching the landmark with Marsh returning to attack to allow DC to break through.
With a stick, Marsh smashed seven sixes and five fours to come out as the hero of the night.
