Former India batsman turned pundit Sanjay Manjrekar has spoken about removing the concept of a free hit, but India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin feels it is a great marketing tool and has captured the imagination of the fans. He wants a 'free ball' to be added for every time when the batter leaves the non-striker's end early. <p></p> <p></p>Taking to Twitter, Ashwin wrote: "Come on @sanjaymanjrekar, a free hit is a great marketing tool and has captured the imagination of all the fans. Let's add a free ball for the bowlers every time a batter leaves the non-striker's end early, a wicket of that ball will reduce 10 runs of the bowler's analysis and total." <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/ashwinravi99/status/1398139892383682560?s=20 <p></p> <p></p>In another tweet, he added: "Remember: "you are supposed to leave the crease only after the ball leaves the hand." <p></p> <p></p>https://twitter.com/ashwinravi99/status/1398140360614760449?s=20 <p></p> <p></p>This after Manjrekar had shared the link of his column for Hindustan Times where he proposed the removal of free hit. <p></p> <p></p>The tweet read: "Hi guys, tell me what you think about some aspects of the game mentioned in this column that have me peeved a little bit.

Will retweet the interesting ones." <p></p> <p></p>Ashwin is currently undergoing quarantine with the rest of the Indian red-ball squad in Mumbai ahead of the UK tour.
