There’s an appeal for Mankading here. Jos Buttler is the man in question. Ashwin is having a heated argument with Buttler and on replays he’s clearly out of the crease and guess what! He’s been given out.
Here are the best Tweets:
No deliberate attempt to steal some ground from @josbuttler If @ashwinravi99 didn’t stop, turn then take the bails off he wouldn’t have left his crease!! Disgraceful decision!!! Fair play award certainly isn’t going to Mohali 😂#IPLT20 #ipl

Ashwin was completely within his rights to dismiss butler there. Don’t understand how Spirit of Cricket can be questioned. How many times have u seen a batsman wait for Umpires decision when he knew he was out? #RRvKXIP #IPL

Don’t blame Ashwin here. As it’s allowed in the Laws of the game.. how is it disrespectful or against the spirit of the game if it’s allowed within the Laws of game?
Blame the administrators for making the Law.

For those who are still talking about it.
"There is a slight change to Law 41.16, which should further confirm the principle, established in the 2017 Code, that it is the non-striker’s duty to remain in his/her ground until the bowler has released the ball."#ashwin pic.twitter.com/fWSAo8JIX5

Bet Ashwin is that bloke who would take your last chicken nugget

The counterpoint is why should a batsman walk out and seek unfair advantage? This #Ashwin Mankading is going to be an interesting talking point. Butler by walking out wasn’t playing within the rules either.

No rules were broken … but just not sure if Butler has gained that much distance at the other end… the bat had barely dragged out that too perhaps when Butler thought the ball’s being delivered .. #RRvKXIP

How is getting an advantage by starting early by the batsman be in the 'spirit of the game'? BTW this is not the first time this has happened with Jos Butler #RRvKXIP
