Ravichandran Ashwin’s first ever stint as a captain in IPL is panning out pretty well. He led his side to a brilliant victory against the Sunrisers Hyderabad and also became the first captain this season to have chosen to bat first after winning the toss. He now has to tackle all his adversities alone as his wife Prithi Ashwin and their two kids are traveling back home after spending two weeks with the franchise.
Prithi Ashwin Narayanan became famous on social media for her witty sense of humor. But as she and her daughters leave Ashwin behind and travel back to their mainland Chennai, she left an emotional message. At the same time, she posted another picture with her kids in a car with a very funny caption.
“THREE IS ALWAYS A PARTAYYY! I have a long day flying ahead. So Ashwin sent me off with a “good luck” instead of a ‘love you’,” she wrote on the picture uploaded on Instagram. She posted another picture on Twitter where the caption read “We ladies are off home, miss you skipper”.

Gayle’s resurgence puts Punjab in a commanding position
Christopher Henry Gayle is a name which doesn’t require any particular introduction. Hailed as the King of T20 cricket, the Caribbean legend stroked his 21st T20 hundred and also his 6th IPL ton against a fiery bowling attack of the Sunrisers Hyderabad. His knock included just 1 four and 11 gigantic sixes, very much reminiscent of the good old days of his career.
Gayle has certainly proved he has a lot to offer to the game of cricket. His resurgence keeps Kings XI Punjab in a commanding position as well, with 3 wins in 4 matches. Ravichandran Ashwin is proving to be an incisive leader, who is leading his troops magnificently well.
Punjab will now face another stern task as they travel to the Eden Gardens to face the Kolkata Knight Riders. Kolkata currently are on top of the table with 3 wins in 5 matches and they’ll be eager to register another big win against this on-song Punjabi unit.
