Yes, during the Coimbatore game between Dindigul Dragons and Ba11sy Trichy in the TNPL 2023, R Ashwin reviewed a review.
Veteran all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, known for his street-smart exploits in the game’s shortest format, made news on Wednesday during the action-packed edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) with his outrageous decision-making. Ashwin, who was judged unnecessary in the ICC World Test Championship championship match against Australia, made a comeback to competitive cricket by leading Dindigul Dragons in Tamil Nadu’s top division.
The third umpire was certain that UltraEdge had a spike on it before the ball struck the willow. The Ba11sy Trichy star was thus not released. A short while after Rajkumar changed his mind, Ashwin chose to revisit the DRS ruling about the identical delivery. Before Rajkumar was declared not out for a second time by the TV umpire, the on-field umpires went through the same procedure. The odd incident quickly gained widespread attention online.
The seasoned Indian all-rounder spoke candidly about the puzzling event in TNPL 2023 after the game. “I felt [it was out] when I was staring at the big screen.” DRS is a brand-new regulation in this contest. Even when there is an edge, the spike [on UltraEdge] typically moves in front of the bat. And to overturn the on field call, there has to be conclusive evidence. That they overturned it, I was slightly not happy. So, I reviewed it, hoping they [umpires] might look at it from a different angle,” Ashwin said at the post-match presentation.
