Recalling the video, Ashwin said,ย  โ€œThe conversation between both of us over the run out at the non-striker’s end. The moment I did that, Ricky, you said, even if you ask me, I will have the point of justification. To be honest, I am a serial sort of a runout guy at the non-striker’s end. I started at the age of 12 because I couldn’t take the batsman taking those extra yards. And the moment I did that, the spirit of cricket was brought into play.โ€
