Ashwin refuses to answer Sunil Narine's bowling action and says, ‘Let’s not get into that topic

The spinner of Rajasthan Royals Ravichandran Ashwin heaped praise on JaspritBumrah’s bowling form in the ongoing IPL 2024, highlighting his unique release point as a key factor behind his success. However, Ashwin steered clear of discussing Sunil Narine’s bowling action, a topic that has courted controversy in the past.
While Ashwin refrained from commenting on Sunil Narine’s bowling action, he did recognise his impressive performance this season. Narine, the second-highest run scorer for the Kolkata Knight Riders with 380 runs, has also emerged as a potent bowling threat. His 13 wickets in 10 matches, coupled with a miserly economy rate of 6.72, place him fifth in the Purple Cap race.
“Bumrah has a really good unique point. He has a distinct advantage compared to other pacers due to his release point. I won’t talk about Sunil Narine. It’s wrong, according to my policy. Narine was also getting hit 2-3 seasons ago. This season, he’s been outstanding. But let’s not get into that topic,” Ashwin said on YouTube.
