Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting said they would find out about all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin’s injury soon. Ashwin displayed a superb form during the match against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), taking two wickets in his first over on Sunday. However, on the last ball of the over, he dived to save a single and injured his shoulder in the process. Ashwin then took to the field along with team physio Patrick Farhart. Delhi Capital won against KXIP in the Super Over.
“Still Gulzar after dawn. Thrilled the way we returned after our debut. @Casino and Rabada 25 with a super over with both @Bat and Ball. We soon get to @ ashwinrax99 for an injury. Will find out more about it and hopefully he is fine. Play against the Super Kings, “Ponting wrote on Twitter.
