R Ashwin says, DRS referral by Smith reminds me of childhood
R Ashwin says, DRS referral by Smith reminds me of childhood. Ashwin said, Have a lot of respect for Smith, but DRS referral input was like an Under-10 game. India's star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin criticised Australia skipper Steve Smith for his controversial action of seeking dressing room's response to take DRS call after his dismissal as surprising and child-like. R Ashwin said Steve Smith's action reminded him of his childhood cricket days. Ashwin said, Steven Smith actually turned back and asked the dressing room if he could take a review. That is completely unheard of. The last time I thought that to happen was in an Under-10 game, when my coach used to suggest where point fielders and cover fielders used to stand. "It was really surprising.
He said, I have a lot of respect for Steven Smith, but that was very very surprising. Ashwin will be playing under Smith's captaincy in the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the latter will be leading the Rising Pune Supergiant side.
