Ravichandran Ashwin took to Instagram to share a hilarious photo featuring various “promotions for off-spin bowlers”. A fan has made a collage of photos showing Ashwin, Graeme Swann and Ramesh Powar during their delivery. Funnily enough, he also snuck in a photo of actor Katrina Kaif assuming a dance pose that was strikingly similar to a bowler’s delivery action. Ashwin posted the meme on his Instagram story, tagging former Indian spinner Ramesh Powar and ex-English bowler Graeme Swann.
Ashwin will play for Delhi Capitals this year after leading Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the previous two seasons.
The Delhi-based franchise drew Ashwin after a successful trade with KXIP ahead of the annual player campaign last December.
Ashwin has played 139 IPL matches so far and the off-spinner has picked up 125 wickets at an average of 26.43 and an economy rate of 6.79.
Delhi’s capitals included Ajinkya Rahane, Ashwin and Marcus Stoinis, who are looking to win their first IPL title this year.
