Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler was on his way to a great century, but Kings XI Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin noticed that wicketkeeper-batsman was backing up at the non-striker’s end.

Ashwin acted as if he is delivering the ball and then took the bails off once Buttler had left the crease during the fourth match of the ongoing IPL in Jaipur on Monday.


Unhappy Buttler leaves the field

There was an animated discussion between Ashwin and Buttler when the former appealed after ‘mankading’. It seemed that Ashwin had warned him before but the discussion turned into an argument soon. The KXIP captain didn’t withdraw his appeal and Buttler had to walk off with despair.

The match was in an interesting situation at that stage and Buttler’s wicket literally turned the game in the visitors’ favour: KXIP won the match by 14 runs.

The cricket fraternity showed mixed-reactions on Twitter regarding the incident.
