Fatullah, Feb 26: Offspinner R Ashwin, who struggled to take wickets on Team India's recent tours abroad, has changed his bowling action.


In India's opening game of the Asia Cup here today against Bangladesh, Ashwin unveiled his new bowling action - similar to West Indies' Sunil Narine.

Wearing long sleeves, Ashwin was introduced into the attack in the 13th over and he struck with his first ball, getting Mominul Haque stumped by Dinesh Karthik.

After watching Ashwin's new bowling action, fans took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to discuss the new look of Ashwin at the bowling crease.

Former India batsman Aakash Chopra tweeted: "Perviously (sic) Ashwin used to come up with new variations in his deliveries..now, he's come up with a new action. Sleeves have become longer too."
