Ashwin is not playing because of Afridi’s two sixes in Asia Cup 2014 – Hafeez makes fun of Indian bowler

Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez has made fun of R Ashwin, who hasn’t been included in the Playing XI.

Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid have selected Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Bishnoi while the champion spinner continues to warm the bench in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022.

When Hafeez was asked about the possible reason behind Ashwin’s exclusion, he credited Shahid Afridi for keeping him away.

“I think the credit goes to Shahid Afridi, who hit two successive sixes on Ashwin’s bowling in the Asia Cup 2014. He is not playing because of that hitting,” said Hafeez.

Meanwhile, the scoreline stands at 1-1 between the two teams. While India won the group stage match by 5 wickets, the Men in Green registered a five-wicket triumph over the Rohit Sharma-led team in the Super 4 stage.

The two nations are likely to clash in the mega finale of the tournament.
