Seeing the turn of Ashwin’s ball on the Nagpur pitch, even the commentators were left stunned. But, in the meantime, a war of words was also witnessed between R Ashwin and Labuschagne. While Ravichandran was seen warning him of spin, Labuschagne was also caught on video saying something to him in response.
