Ravichandran Ashwin ‘mankading’ Jos Buttler has been at the centre of a lot of debate in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). While few have supported the Kings XI Punjab skipper saying that is within the rules of the game, others like James Anderson criticised him for violating the spirit of the game with the dismissal.
During Match 22 of the IPL 2019 between Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Mohali, it was clear that the incident was going through David Warner’s mind as he was extra cautious during Ashwin’s over.
In the sixth over of the SRH innings, Warner was at the non-striker’s end. He dragged his bat well inside the crease when Ashwin came close to the stumps during his bowling action. Commentators looked amused by that, but Warner must’ve been serious.
Here’s the video:
