Ahead of Ravichandran Ashwin‘s 100th Test for Indian cricket team, an interesting comment by former spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan went viral. When the entire cricket fraternity was going gung-ho Ashwin’s moment of history, former India spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan said he was disappointed by the way he was treated by the veteran spinner. Taking to social media, Sivaramakrishnan claimed that Ashwin disconnected his calls and didn’t even reply to his congratulatory messages on the 100th Test milestone.

“Tried calling him a few times to wish him for his 100th Test. Just cut off my call. Sent him a message, no reply. That’s the respect we former cricketers get,” the former India spinner wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

Sivaramakrishnan also issued a clarification as a person on social media accused him of disrespecting Ashwin.

After that, Ashwin, in response to a post on X, wrote: “Ok sir, after deciding when and where”. The post had an image of Sivaramakrishnan with this line: “Call me please’.

Now, there has been another comment on Aswin by Sivaramakrishnan. “He is not the most important person in my life,” he wrote in reply to a query saying: “Did Ashwin call u back da kanna”

Ashwin recently made an interesting comment on the captaincy change in CSK.

“This was an inevitable decision. It had to come at some stage,” Ashwin said in a video on his YouTube channel. “I know MS Dhoni. He keeps the team at the forefront. He keeps thinking about the well-being of the team. Because of that, 2 years ago, he gave the captain’s armband to Jadeja. Now, he has given it to Ruturaj. This decision had to happen. Who and how remained the question.”

Ashwin believes that the message of captaincy change would’ve been conveyed to Ruturaj last year by Dhoni. The opening batter, hence, would’ve been ready to take charge as the new season began.

“Ruturaj wouldn’t have thought his role was only a batter until yesterday. I know MS Dhoni very well. Sitting in his room, enjoying dinner with the youngsters, he must have told Ruturaj last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. ‘Brother, you are going to take charge. You can do all these things. I will be there, don’t worry’ is something that Dhoni night have told Ruturaj well in advance.”

Ashwin was also full of praise for Gaikwad, drawing similarities between his character and Dhoni’s, suggesting both are calm and composed personalities. “I know Ruturaj, he is extremely cool and calm. He is a very good human being. I am extremely elated for him,” Ashwin backed the young opener to find success,” said the off-spinner.
