R Ashwin is an animated character, and there is never a dull moment when he is on the field. He is currently participating in the ongoing first Test between India and New Zealand.

He was seen having a verbal slugfest with on-field umpire Nitin Menon. After bowling to Kane Williamson, the umpire was seen taking to the Indian spinner. Ashwin was blocking his way while delivering the ball.

However, Ashwin continued bowling in the same fashion, which forced umpires to summon Ajinkya Rahane.

“You are obstructing my vision,” to which the stand-in skipper Rahane said, “He’s not running on to the danger area.”

However, the umpire continued and said, “I can’t make the LBW calls,” to which Ashwin gave a cheeky response and said, “You are anyway not making any.” Ashwin was also heard saying, ‘that it is fine if you aren’t able to give a verdict, I will use DRS because this angle is helping me bowl better.’
