In the 15th season of the Indian Premier League, BCCI has implemented many new rules. In the 20th match of the new season, something happened that had never been seen before in the history of this tournament. For the first time in the history of 15 years, a player walked off the field without a wicket. The match played between Rajasthan and Lucknow saw the first retired out in the history of the tournament.
In the match played against Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) in the 20th match of IPL, R Ashwin of Rajasthan Royals (RR) surprised everyone by retiring. Batting in the 19th over of the innings, he went back to the dugout without the permission of the umpire.
In the match against Lucknow, Ashwin was sent to bat at number six after Van der Dussen was dismissed in 9.5 overs. After contributing 28 runs in 23 balls, when Ashwin felt that he was not able to bat as per the requirement of the team, he decided to retire in 18.2 balls. In this way, he became the first player in IPL history to be dismissed like this.
When a player wants to leave the field while batting without getting injured according to the needs of the team, then he is called retired out. The batsman cannot return again after the wicket has fallen from the ground without the permission of the umpire. At the same time, a player who goes out of the field after an injury is called retired hurt. Such a batsman can return to bat again as per the requirement of the team
