During the ongoing India vs. England 1st Test in Hyderabad, the usually cohesive duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja found themselves entangled in a run-out fiasco that left Ashwin visibly frustrated. The breakdown in communication between the two star spinners led to Ashwin’s premature departure from the crease, raising eyebrows and tempers alike. As the clock ticked towards the final session of Day 2, Ashwin faced a delivery from Joe Root, unleashing a backfoot punch. Eager for a quick single, Ashwin set off, only to find Jadeja still glued to the other end. Tom Hartly’s swift fielding denied them the run, leaving both stranded. The ensuing throw from Ben Foakes sealed Ashwin’s fate, triggering a heated exchange between the two as he reluctantly made his way back to the pavilion.
