Fans reckons Yuvraj was talking about no other than Ashwin here. Here is how fans reacted to Yuvraj’s tweet:
If he is referring to Ashwin, it’s just a cheap shot. Anyway Ashwin is doing the right thing and is a trendsetter.

In the past, Ashwin faced flak for his Mankading act in the IPL. He had Mankaded Jos Buttler which sparked a massive controversy.
The Titans beat the Royals by 37 runs to go top of the points table.
