Indian spinning wizard Ravichandran Ashwin responded to a fan who pointed out that he used the wrong Ireland players’ references in one of his recent YouTube videos. The veteran India spinner became victim of trolling after one of his YouTube shows called ‘T20 WC Curtain Raiser: Associates and Ireland Players Watch’. He had Robin Uthappa and cricket pundit Prasanna Agoram. During the show, he talked about one of Ireland’s players to watch out for in the upcoming tournament. 

What went wrong was he got two players wrong while doing so. Ashwin’s show displayed a photo of Barry McCarthy and Peter Chase, but Chase announced his international retirement in 2022. Not only this, but a picture of Mark Adair was shown with Craig Young’s name. In addition, Ashwin also called Ireland as one of the Associate Nations. 

Fans were quick to point all the errors, and the spinner had to face trolling on social media. The RR bowler accepted the errors while responding to one of the trolls. He replied, “It is associated nations and Ireland episode cos we couldn’t fit them into an episode. You will get why when you see the rest of the episodes. Yes, we got "Mark Adairs" picture wrong at the back end. Appreciate your feedback.” 

Ravichandran Ashwin tests daughters’ knowledge ahead of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024

The Indian spinner tested his daughters’ knowledge by hosting a fun-filled quiz session about the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Ashwin tested his daughters’, Akhira and Aadhya, knowledge about the marquee mega event. In the video, the veteran bowler could be heard asking the little girls name of the host nations of the T20 World Cup 2024. He then asked the name of the West Indies’ captain as well as the name of the head coach of the Indian team. 

Ashwin captioned the video, “We are excited for the T20 World Cup. How about you?” Notably, the tournament is set to begin on June 1 with the USA clashing against Canada in the season opener. India will be up against Ireland in their first clash of the tournament on June 5.
