The ongoing controversy about Ashwin Mankading Jos Buttler at a crucial stage of the match between the Kings XI Punjab and the Rajasthan Royals has become a huge talking point and there are comments pouring in, not just from the audience, but also a lot of cricketers. Most of these opinions have been against Ashwin citing that this act does not go well with the spirit of the game.

Ashwin\'s tweet about mankading

While some of them say that this incident should have been totally avoided and Ashwin was wrong, there are others who say, Ashwin should have at least warned Buttler before Mankading him.

We know that Ashwin is someone who strictly goes by the rules, and is always looking for every small opportunity within those restrictions. For people who follow him on Twitter, this incident should not be a total surprise since he has always been an advocate of the Mankad rule. Replying to a tweet about Mankading about three years back, Ashwin replied saying he would do it every single day since it's not fair for the batsman to gain unfair yards.
