Ravichandran Ashwin has demanded an end to fan clashes in India following taunts directed towards Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Hardik Pandya during the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL). Hardik, the five-time IPL champion’s captain who succeeded Rohit Sharma, has had a difficult time in his early leadership role. The all-rounder has received criticism on social media after losing his first two matches as MI’s captain.

The Ahmedabad crowd booed Hardik during MI’s opening IPL 2024 match against the Gujarat Titans. Fans also attacked Hardik harshly on social media after their defeat by SRH, which ended their season without winning.

Ashwin addressed the issue on his YouTube channel in response to a fan’s question on whether MI ought to intervene and issue a statement.

The RR spinner asserted that the fan fights in India are getting ugly and that neither the team nor the player is at fault. Criticising it and defining it as a full-blown cinema culture, Ashwin expressed amazement at the booing of Indian players by domestic fans.

He said, he thinks it is the responsibility and onus of the fans. Ashwin said, fan wars are turning so ugly. It is very sad to point where in their comments section, people talk on Kohli and Dhoni. They’re both legends. They’re Indian team legends, he added.

During his YouTube video he questioned fans saiyng, has anyone witnessed fighting between Joe Root and Zak Crawley fans in any other country? He said, its’ crazy and he is unable to understand these things. Do Australian supporters of Pat Cummins and Steve Smith fight?, he added.

The RR bowler said, this is cricket and what fans are doing is  complete cinema culture. Fan wars shouldn’t turn ugly, he said. These guys are our own cricketers. Why do you boo your own player? said Ashwin.

In addition, Ashwin mentioned how great players like Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, and Sachin Tendulkar had all played for younger captains like MS Dhoni in the past and expressed his desire for the nation to be free of hero worship.

Meanwhile, RR will face MI on April 1 at Wankhade Stadium in Mumbai.

India captian and Mumbai Indians star cricketer Rohit sharma criticised the impact player rule and sad that he is not a big fan of it. Now, BCCI has responded to Sharma’s comment and said that they will reevaluate the rule.

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Arun Dhumal also acknowledged this and said  that every decision has advantages and disadvantages, he also mentioned  BCCI is prepared to review the regulation when the current IPL season concludes.

Ahead to being established in the IPL, the impact player rule was initially put into effect in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament in 2022–2023. There have been many expert comments regarding the rule that has been in place for almost two editions of the prestigious T20 tournament, with the many of players being against it.

Since this remark has been made, they will certainly analyze it and talk to everyone concerned and then the board will take calls, Dhumal said.

Every rule that is in place has a number of advantages and disadvantages. Nothing about its execution is set in stone, so after the season ends, they are open to any discussion, he continued.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma also discussed how the impact player rule is reducing the role of all-rounders in the sport.

Sharma said, he is not a big fan of Impact sub rule. All rounders will eventually be held back because cricket is ultimately played by 11 players, not 12. To make the game exciting for everyone around you, you are taking a great deal from it. During an interew the hitman said, if the audience look just at the cricketing side of things, he feels guys like Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar aren’t getting to bowl, which is not a good thing for them as a team.

He continued saying that there are 12 players, it’s interesting, and after the team or the captain sees how the game and the pitch are playing, they might turn on the impact player. You can add another bowler, giving you a total of six or seven bowlers, if the team bats effectively and don’t lose wickets. Many teams are hitting well up front, and he hardly ever sees a No 7 or No 8 coming to bat, so the team doesn’t need that additional batter, Rohit Sharma said.
