Innovation Is Often Misunderstood By Many, Says Ravichandran Ashwin

While supporting The Hundred, Ashwin made arguments in the tournament’s favor on his Youtube channel. The Indian spinner mentioned that innovation is often misunderstood and not encouraged by many.

“Those who did not understand this format commented vaguely about frequent changes in rules and formats. To many, innovation is not encouraged and is often misunderstood. When someone films a movie, we should watch it in the theatre and then criticise it. Making irrelevant comments even before going to the theatre does not work. We should appreciate the attempt and give credit to it,” Ravichandran Ashwin said.

Ravichandran Ashwin also revealed that he watched a game between two women teams in The Hundred and found the game outstanding. The right-arm spinner also said that he would be glad if women’s IPL happens in the future. Have a look at Ashwin’s Youtube video below.

“I watched a women’s game between Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals. Though names were different, the game was outstanding, and women’s cricket is here to stay. I’d be glad if women’s IPL is all set to happen,” Ashwin added.

In The Hundred tournament, 8 teams are part of the men’s competition while 8 teams are part of the women’s competition. In Men’s tournament, Trent Rockets currently holds the top spot in the points table with 2 victories in 2 games.
