The IPL 2022 Mega-Auction is underway at the moment in Bengaluru. The likes of Shreyas Iyer and Kagiso Rabada have earned good contracts so far. Rajasthan Royals have signed R Ashwin for IPL 2022 and beyond. With this, Ashwin and Jos Buttler will spend time in the same team. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as R Ashwin and Jos Buttler to play in the same team for IPL 2022.
R Ashwin and Jos Buttler to play in the same team for IPL 2022
A few seasons ago, when R Ashwin was part of Punjab Kings, he and Jos Buttler were involved in a controversial incident. This was regarding Ashwin knocking the bails off at the bowler’s end when the Englishman was off the crease. This led to a war of words between the duo and the discussion of “Spirit of Cricket” happened for a long time.
Since then, every time that the duo clashed against each other, there was a throwback to the incident. Now, Rajasthan Royals have signed R Ashwin to the team, which had already retained the English wicket-keeper.
On the flipside, Ashwin’s signing will be good for the franchise. The team has never had a proper Indian spinner in recent years. Hence, Ashwin with his experience will help the franchise. In the leadership department, as well, Ashwin will add value.
Twitter reacts to RR’s latest signing
Twitter was quick to respond to the fact that Ashwin and Buttler will share the dressing room in IPL 2022. Ashwin clashed with Eoin Morgan regarding “Spirit of Cricket” last year and hence, it needs to be seen as to how Ashwin and Buttler would react to them playing for the same team. On that note, here is a look at some hilarious reactions on Twitter as soon as RR finished hiring Ashwin.
Haha Ashwin to Rajasthan. Will love him plotting a Mankad with Buttler.Advertisement
