I was in pain as I left the field last night, but the pain has subsided and the scan reports are very encouraging. Thank you for all your love and support. # IPL2020

DC head coach Ricky Ponting said earlier today that he hoped Ashwin would be fit to play against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the next Delhi match.
Ponting tweeted, “We will get to know about @ ashwinravi99’s injury soon and hopefully he is fine to play against the Super Kings.”
Delhi will play their second IPL match against CSK in Dubai on 25 September and will build on the momentum gained from their upcoming win against Kings XI on Sunday.
After the teams tied at 157/8, Delhi emerged victorious in the super over and dismissed Kings XI for just two runs.
Marcus Stoinis was the hero for Delhi with the bat and ball. He scored 13 runs in the final over to take away the crucial wicket of Mayank Agarwal (89 for 60), who threatened to take the game away from Delhi after scoring a half-century with the bat.
Ashwin dismissed Karun Nair and Nicholas Pooran in their first over, but went out of the ground groaning painfully after injuring his left shoulder while diving to stop the ball.
