This Cricketer Becomes The 1st Indian Bowler to Dismiss Father and Son

This Cricketer Becomes The 1st Indian Bowler to Dismiss Father and Son: Indian veteran off spinner R Ashwin achieved the unique feat of picking up the wickets of both father and son on Day 1 of first Test between India and West Indies in Dominica on Wednesday, July 12.

He picked wicket of West Indies opener Tagenarine Chandrerpaul, the son of former great batter Shivnariane Chanderpaul, in the 13th Over of the innings.

Ashwin dismissed Shivnarine Chanderpaul four times in Test matches, including in Sachin Tendulkar’s final international game at the Wankhede Stadium in November 2013.

In the process, Ravichandran Ashwin ranked No.1 in the world, became the first Indian and the fourth bowler ever to dismiss a father-son duo in international cricket.

Only three other bowlers have achieved a similar feat, namely former England all-rounder Ian Botham, former Pakistan legend Wasim Akram and South Africa’s Simon Harmer.

While Tagenarine Chanderpaul debuted in the Test series in Australia last year, Shivnarine is considered among the all-time greats in all formats of cricket.

Ravichandran Ashwin inched closer to becoming only the third Indian cricketer to pick up 700 international wickets, joining former Indian greats Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.

However, Yash Dayal of RCB scored on the second delivery to remove the former captain of CSK and turn the tide of the match in his team’s favor.

On social media, a depressing video has surfaced that shows Dhoni skipping the post-match handshakes with RCB players and going back to the dressing room.

When the RCB players finished their celebration and shook hands with the CSK players, Dhoni, who hasn’t been totally fit the whole season, was in front of the line. But after a little period, Dhoni made the decision to head back to the dressing room.

Although it’s unclear if Dhoni and the RCB playing XI shook hands afterwards, the seasoned wicketkeeper batting decided to head back to the dressing room at that particular moment rather than waiting for the players of the other team.

In another video, it can be seen that Virat Kohli went after Dhoni to the dressing room, probably to shake hands with him after missing out on the same during their time on the field.

MS Dhoni to Announce Retirement Soon? Former CSK Cricketer Says 'There is a Reason…'

MS Dhoni to Announce Retirement Soon? Former CSK Cricketer Says ‘There is a Reason…’: Chennai Super Kings’ IPL 2024 campaign comes to a sad end on Saturday as they were defeated by Royal Challengers Bengaluru by an aggregate score of 27 runs.

The topic of discussion ever since the loss and CSK’s elimination from the IPL this year has been whether MS Dhoni would declare his retirement or whether the seasoned wicketkeeper will return for one final game in the IPL 2025.

According to pundit and former CSK batsman Robin Uthappa, Dhoni will return to the Yellow uniform for the next IPL season.

In an interaction with JioCinema, Uthappa said, “I don’t think we have seen the last of MS. He is not someone who takes these things lightly. He will come back roaring for sure,” Uthappa said while speaking on JioCinema.

“Even with the narrative, I have seen him bat only in the last 4 or 5 overs, there is a reason for it. He had a calf injury which they initially thought perhaps was a niggle, but it was a little more grave than that. Because of that, he had to manage himself and often as he does, in international cricket and for CSK, he figured out a way to be useful and contribute to CSK,” the former CSK batter added.

Notably, Dhoni’s 25-run (off 13 balls) innings on Saturday gave CSK a chance to compete against RCB. Ultimately, CSK required 17 runs from the last over in order to go to the playoffs. As he has so often done in the past, MS Dhoni opened the over with a huge six to put rookie Yash Dayal under strain.

But the left-hander bounced back, dismissing Dhoni and adding a dot ball and a single in the next over. Then, CSK needed 10 runs in only two balls, but Yash Dayal’s slower deliveries were too much for a well-conditioned Ravindra Jadeja to handle.
