IPL 2019 – WATCH: Ravichandran Ashwin gives ‘Mankad’ warning, Shikhar Dhawan mocks him with dance moves (DC vs KXIP)

Posted On / /

Delhi Capitals (DC) opener Shikhar Dhawan, on Saturday, came up with a hilarious response after Kings XI Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin issued a ‘Mankad’ warning.

The incident took place at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium during 13th over of the second innings when Ashwin warned the southpaw for backing away. However, Dhawan decided to mock the off-spinner post the warning.

When Ashwin crossed the umpire to bowl his next delivery, Dhawan at the non-striker’s end started dancing and twisting albeit keeping his bat inside the crease.

On Friday, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli teased Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner Sunil Narine with a funny play-acting. Earlier in the season, when Ashwin mankaded Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler in Jaipur, it gave rise to a huge controversy.

Here’s the video:

Chasing a target of 164 runs, Dhawan laid the foundation with a fluent 56 of 41 balls, while skipper Shreyas Iyer anchored it with an unbeaten 58 off 49 balls.

For KXIP, Chris Gayle hammered 69 runs off just 37 deliveries to take the score to 163/7 in 20 overs.
