The world is abuzz following the latest incident of Mankading in the ongoing IPL.
Ashwin is being blamed for a cowardly act and playing against the 'spirit of the game', but the fans are split as to whether Ashwin was right at doing so.
Meanwhile, IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla has said that it was pre-decided not to have Mankading in the IPL.
Ashwin Mankads Jos Buttler, the first instance in IPL
It all happened during the 13th over, while Ashwin was on his run-up to bowl to Sanju Samson, when Buttler left his crease at the non-striker's end, even before Ashwin had released the delivery.
Ashwin didn't complete his delivery and promptly noted action of Buttler to clip the bails.
The umpire referred it upstairs, where the third umpire, after reviewing it, declared Buttler out.
IPL Chairman says that it was pre-decided not to Mankad
In the latest development, Shukla has said that prior to one of the editions of the IPL, it was decided that there would be no Mankading in the league.
Shukla also said that the decision was taken in the presence of top players like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
Therefore, the question arises that did Ashwin go against the norm?
