Ashwin Calls Former India Star Who Criticised His Action on Twitter

One of the players of the Indian cricket team of this generation, Ashwin, earned a recall to the ODI team of India before the start of the World Cup. While there were those who doubted whether the veteran could still deliver in the 50-over format of the game, he did incredibly well against Australia, prompting the selectors to include him in the ODI World Cup roster too after Axar Patel was injured. However, ahead of the start of the showpiece event, former India spinner Laxman expressed worry over Ashwin's action. While Siva was trolled by many on social media for his views, Ashwin himself called up the former India star and asked for advice.
Having been a star spinner during his playing days, Sivaramakrishnan highlighted how the action of Ashwin lacks ‘synchronization'. He even shared a picture to justify his point.
Sivaramakrishnan wrote on X, "This picture has gone viral on SM. Enlarge the image, and you notice his non-bowling arm and upper body have opened up towards the offside. If you look at his lower body, it is closed. This leads to a lack of synchronization. Ash quickly needs to correct this to be more effective.”
In the second tweet he posted, "Ravi Ashwin was nice enough to call me just a while ago to discuss his bowling action; he was as shocked by the venom of the trolls as I was. It was also clarified that the people involved are in no way connected to him. Good luck, @ashwinravi99. Do us proud.”
