Watch: Ashwin Cheers on Pant Ahead of RR vs. DC Clash

In an unexpected show of sportsmanship, Rajasthan Royals (RR) spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was spotted cheering for Delhi Capitals (DC) star Rishabh Pant during a recent net session ahead of their impending clash in Jaipur. Pant, who made his highly anticipated return to competitive cricket in DC’s season opener against Punjab Kings (PBKS), received encouraging words from Ashwin as he geared up for the upcoming match.

Despite DC facing a four-wicket defeat against PBKS, Pant showcased promising form with the bat, contributing 18 runs off 13 deliveries before being dismissed. Moreover, his performance behind the stumps was commendable, with a notable catch and a stumping during PBKS’ batting innings.

The camaraderie between Ashwin and Pant was evident, with Ashwin taking on the role of a cheerleader for his fellow cricketer. Indian cricket enthusiasts are familiar with Pant’s signature ‘Come on Ash, Come on Ash’ chants from behind the stumps whenever Ashwin is bowling. However, in a delightful role reversal, Ashwin could be heard motivating Pant with spirited cries of ‘Come on Rishabh.’

This heartwarming gesture highlights the camaraderie and mutual respect among players despite representing rival teams. As the anticipation builds for the RR vs. DC clash, fans eagerly await the on-field action, knowing that beyond the competition lies a deep sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship among these talented cricketers.
