<p>During a practice session, the 37-year-old showed off his tactical acumen to the Rajasthan Royals (RR) supporters by outwitting their international batsman, Shimron Hetmyer.</p>
<p>During a net session, Ashwin bowled to Hetmyer and described the modifications in field location (imaginary). Ashwin informed Hetmyer that he would be pulling the point and cover fielder back towards the fence and setting up a square leg for him.</p>
<p>After spreading the web, Ashwin delivered the southpaw a well-disguised carrom ball, pinning him in front of his stumps, perhaps thinking he was inclined to hit across the line for the boundary possibility available on the side behind square.</p>
<p>Hetmyer failed to pick up the ball’s line and was unable to counter Ashwin’s cunning.</p>
<p>While Hetmyer rushed to retrieve the ball and return it to the cunning Indian spinner, Ashwin celebrated the situation by raising both of his arms in the air</p>
<p> </p>
<p>On March 24, the Rajasthan Royals will play their first match of the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).</p>
<p>The Rajasthan Royals’ 2024 IPL team roster:</p>
<p>Among them are Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler (England), Dhruv Jurel, Kunal Rathore, Donovan Ferreira (South Africa), Tom Kohler-Cadmore (England), Shimron Hetmyer (West Indies), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag, Rovman Powell (West Indies), Shubham Dubey, Ravichandran Ashwin, Abid Mushtaq, Trent Boult (New Zealand), Yuzvendra Chahal, Sandeep Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Sen, Adam Zampa (Australia), Nandre Burger (South Africa), and Avesh Khan.</p>
