R Ashwin was once again at the receiving end during the ongoing Indian Premier League. He was brutally trolled by fans for making a captaincy blunder during his team’s match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Ashwin, who gave away 47 runs from his four overs, was having tough time to contain the rival batters in the last overs of the innings.

In his quest to keep Russell quite, Shami got better of him for three in the 17th over. However, Russell was recalled by the umpires after the intervention of third umpire. Ashwin had only three fielders inside the circle instead of four and hence the delivery was declared a no-ball.

This mistake proved costly as Russell scored 48 runs. The damage was done as KKR finished 218/4 and won the game by 28 runs. Ashwin who was lambasted for ‘mankading’ Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler, faced more flak after the blunder against Knight Riders.
