The Board of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) posted a video of Shardul Thakur in conversation with R Ashwin. In the clip, the Indian all-rounder asked the ace spinner about his dance. Ashwin has tried different moves with Washington Sundar, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav in the past.
Ashwin spoke about his videos with his teammates and also mentioned that dance moves are completely out of syllabus for him.
“If I have to look back at it, I don’t know whether you got motivated by my first video which was on a song of actor Vijay, which is in fact quite popular. To be honest this video of mine with Washi and Hari, it was there in my camera roll for long but I didn’t think of posting it. I decided to post it after I saw the video of you, Shreyas and Rohit dancing. It seemed very similar but you guys were better choreographed and stuff like that,” Ashwin said on a lighter note.
“Dance is something that is completely out of syllabus for me. I look at myself and I think I want to dance in a certain way but I definitely cannot,” the off spinner added.
Shardul responded back and said – “But you can surely move your shoulder quite well. Is that because of your bowling?”
Ashwin responded to the question and stated, “No, the step is like that. I think the actor Vijay got inspired by me and actually did it.”
