Jos Butler Refuses to Handshake R. Ashwin: Watch Video


Jos Buttler was sent packing to the pavilion in a rather unfamiliar way during the fourth game of the ongoing IPL. The Rajasthan Royals batsman, who was performing really well with a sublime knock, was mankaded by R.Ashwin of the Kings XI Punjab in the 13th over of Rajasthan’s innings.

After Ashwin’s appeal, the umpires decided to rule Buttler out and as a result, the hosts collapsed in a heap to lose the game.

This bizarre incident from last night’s game has set the cricketing and internet world on fire. The mankading act of KXIP skipper has opened gates for several debates on the internet and elsewhere. While
some have lashed out at the Indian spinner and criticized him for breaching the “spirit” of the game and some others have come out in defence of Ashwin’s activity,

Eoin Morgan, Shane Warne, Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen were among those who found fault with Ashwin’s decision to Mankad Buttler, while Aakash Chopra, Murali Kartik, and a few others cited that the KXIP skipper was well within his rights to claim for the wicket.

Many heated arguments and debates continue to surface social media, videos capturing a notable moment during the post-match handshake, have been fetching attention.

There is a viral video which suggested that Jos Buttler refused to shake hands with R. Ashwin while the two teams exchanged on-field pleasantries after the game.
