IPL 2019: Kings XI Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin seems to be grabbing eyeballs for all the wrong reasons. From the mankad episode to the aggressive send-off to Virat Kohli, Ashwin is not the cricketer fans know him to be. Ahead of the SRH vs KXIP tie, Ashwin took to Twitter and advertised himself. He said fans, he can bat and bowl and requested them to pick him in their Dream11. For a cricketer of his stature to be making such requests to fans did not go down well and he faced the heat on social media. His post was captioned, “I can bat, bowl and captain the side! Make sure you pick me in your #Dream11 tomorrow.”

Here are the trolls that followed:

Meanwhile, after facing defeats in their previous encounters, both Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab will look to turn back to the winning ways when they face each other at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Monday. Hyderabad had to face a crushing seven-wicket in their last encounter against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur. Defending 161 on Saturday, SRH bowlers struggled to get breakthroughs as Royals easily reached the target with five balls to spare and theoretically kept their chances alive of making it to the playoffs.
