Ravichandran Ashwin on Switch Hit: In order to get runs in cricket, the batsmen keep playing some unique shots every day. Recently, Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin made a statement. He had said that the batsman should go to play the switch hit and if the ball hits the pad, then LBW Out should be given. Now a former New Zealand all-rounder has even talked about banning this shot.
This veteran gave this big statement
After Ravichandran Ashwin, now former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris has given a big statement on the switch hit. He has said that the switch hit shot should be banned in cricket. According to the current rules, if the ball has hit outside the leg-stump, then the batsman cannot be given out LBW even though there is every possibility of it hitting the wicket. This is considered a ‘blind spot’ for the batsmen. Scott Styris has now given another big statement after this statement of Ashwin.
These veterans do not agree with Ashwin
Styris said in the Sports Over the Top program, ‘I liked a lot of the points that Ashwin raised. But I completely disagree with the solution given by him. Sometimes it is fun to watch Switch hits but I think it should be banned completely. There are rules for the captain and bowlers as to how many fielders they can keep, how many fielders will be behind the point, how many will be in the leg-lide, all these things.
R Ashwin gave this statement
Recently, Ashwin had said on his YouTube channel, ‘Let the batsmen hit the switch, but if they miss, give us a chance to LBW. If the batsman has turned, how can you say he is not LBW? If he starts giving out in all formats of the game then some level of balance can be established between bowling and batting.
