Delhi Capitals star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has stepped down in the middle of Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket. He made the decision because of India's growing coronavirus infection. Ashwin feels it is more important to be by his family's side instead of IPL. However, the star offspinner has said that he will join the team again if the situation improves. Ashwin made his decision after Delhi's breathtaking Super Over win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday night. Delhi played their first three matches of the event in Mumbai. Then he played two matches in Chennai. Ashwin's family lives here. Ahmedabad is the venue for Delhi's next match on Tuesday. However, Ashwin will not go there with the team. Instead, stay in Tamil Nadu, go to the family. "I am taking a break from the IPL this year," Ashwin wrote on Twitter, announcing his decision. My family and other family members are fighting Kovid-19. I want to stand by them in this difficult time. If the situation is right, I want to return to the field. Thank you Delhi Capitals.
