The Punjab Kings (PBKS) took to social media to share a hilarious dance video of Murugan Ashwin. The spinner was hired by the Punjab franchise ahead of the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL), and has been in and out of the squad since. Despite limited opportunities, the 30-year-old is still considered a quality bowler by many fans and is known to be a googly specialist. Posting the crazy dancing video on Twitter, PBKS captioned it as “. @ AshwinMurugan8 handing out yet another googly.”

In the video, Ashwin can be seen doing some hilarious dance moves with a friend, which left Punjab fans broke.
Despite a strong performance in the IPL 2020, Ashwin only played three games in the IPL 2021, which was postponed indefinitely to the middle of the season. He took a lonely wicket.
PBKS was sixth on the points table, when the tournament was postponed indefinitely, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in India.
The 2021 IPL has also been hit hard by the coronavirus with a few high-profile cases.
Michael Hussey and Lakshmipathy Balaji of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have tested positive for the virus. Wriddhiman Saha of SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) returned with a positive result, but has since recovered. The wicket-beater is also part of the WTC Indian final team and is currently in England.
Additionally, Varun Chakaravarthy and Sandeep Warrier of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) also returned with positive results. IPL 2021 is expected to resume in the September-October window and is expected to be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
