It is very unique and does not frequently happen when on the cricket field when a player leaves the field and then is declared retired out. Whatever the reason for this, the player has to do it sometimes due to injury or ill-health or for any technical reason.

Once the player leaves the field, he is disqualified. Then he can’t start the game again.

A similar scenario was witnessed in the ongoing IPL when Ravichandran Ashwin left the field and walked out of the field. He has become the first player to be retired out in the history of the Indian Premier League. This happened during the match between Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants on Sunday.

Ashwin was batting on 28 off 23 balls. Then he suddenly left the field and gave Riyan Parag a chance to come on the field. Parag comes to the crease to support ShimronHetmyer. Hetmyer scored 59 runs off 36 balls. Rajasthan Royals scored 165 for 6 wickets.

Shimron Hetmyer told during the post-innings break that he had no idea about Ashwin’s decision. He said that he was batting when he saw Ashwin running out of the field.

What is retired out?

According to the rules- ‘A batsman is retired when he leaves his innings midway without the permission of the umpire and the captain of the opposition team. If this happens, that is, he does not go after telling the umpire or the captain of the opposition team, then he is called ‘retired out’ and is considered a wicket. Also, it is counted in the batsman’s average as well.

After being retired, the batsman cannot come back to bat. At the same time, after being retired hurt, he can come to bat again if the team needs it.

This has happened in international cricket

It may have happened for the first time in IPL but it has happened in international T20 matches. In the South Asian Games in the year 2019, SonamTogbe of Bhutan was retired against the Maldives in the 19th over.

Ashwin is amazing at taking advantage of the rules. There were a lot of controversies when he used Mankading. The cricket world was divided over Ashwin’s decision. Now it will be interesting to see how Ashwin reacts to this decision taken in the interest of the team.

Why did Ashwin leave the field mid-way?

After the match, when asked about the decision to get retire to Ashwin, he answered that we did not have many balls left and we had Riyan Parag left to bat attacking. In such a situation, we wanted to use them to collect a few more runs, due to which we took this decision.

The decision taken by Ashwin has made many stalwarts of the cricket world happy and he praised this decision and said that in the coming times we will see many such decisions on behalf of the teams in T20 cricket.

From this, it gets clear that every game is teamwork and presenting a game is the responsibility of each player and not only the captains. Each player needs to take the right decision at right time on his own and contribute to winning the team.
