Ashwin pointed finger at Rohit Sharma’s decision, said ‘Who will become a millionaire like any captain…’
Ashwin said that if you appeal for LBW or catch then no one will ask like Sarath Kumar or Amitabh Bachchan in Captain Se Kaun Banega Crorepati whether they are confident with the appeal or not.
In the first match of the ongoing three-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma won everyone’s heart with one of his decisions, but now fellow player R Ashwin has raised a finger on his decision. In fact, in the last over of the ODI match played in Guwahati, Shanaka, who was batting close to a century, was run out by Mohammad Shami while bowling at the non-striker’s end. Shami also appealed for this, but later captain Rohit Sharma rejected his appeal and gave Shanaka a chance to score a century. Rohit later said that he did not want to dismiss Shanaka in such a way that is why he decided to withdraw the appeal. But now Ashwin has said that when a player is out LBW or caught behind the wicket, the umpire gives out only on the appeal of the player. At that point the umpire does not look towards the captain to dismiss the appeal.

The Indian off-spinner said, ‘When Shanaka was on 98, Shami ran him out at the non-striker’s end and he appealed. Rohit withdrew that appeal. So many people tweeted about him immediately. I am just repeating the same thing guys. The state of the game is immaterial. This is a valid form of dismissal. And if you appeal for an LBW or a catch, no one will ask the captain like Sarath Kumar or Amitabh Bachchan in Kaun Banega Crorepati whether they are confident with the appeal or not.’

Ashwin further said, ‘If the bowler appeals then he should be given out and it ends there. See, even if a fielder appeals, it is the duty of the umpire to declare a player out when he is dismissed.
