Ashwin Takes A Funny Dig At Twitter User Who Tries To Target Him Over Mankading Incident


Ashwin Takes A Funny Dig At Twitter User Who Tries To Target Him Over Mankading Incident

The Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is all set to face the England team in the 5-match test series as he took 6 wickets for Surrey in a county game against Somerset. In the 15 overs that he bowled, Ashwin gave only 27 runs and it won’t be wrong to say that if he performs in the same manner against England, India will have pretty good chances of winning the series.

R Ashwin is very active on the social media networks and recently an online user once again brought up the topic of mankading on Twitter. If you remember, during an IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings), Ravichandran Ashwin (the then skipper of KXIP) mankaded Jos Buttler as he went out of the crease (non-striker end) even before the bowler (Ashwin) threw the ball.

Many people including former cricketers slammed R Ashwin for going against the sportsman spirit while some defended his move. However, the criticism has had no effect on the Tamil Nadu cricketer and he has made it clear to everyone that he has done nothing which is against the laws of the game so he will certainly repeat it if he gets a chance.

The online user shared a video clip dating back to India’s tour of South Africa in 1992-93. On that tour, in the first match, Kapil Dev warned Peter Kirsten when he went out of the crease even before the ball was thrown but when Peter Kirsten repeated the same thing in the second match, Kapil Dev who looked very annoyed mankaded Peter Kirsten.

Here is the video:

The online user stated that Kapil Dev was fair as he warned Kirsten first and then got him out when he repeated the act. He added that Kapil Dev didn’t stop for mankading Kirsten and he also didn’t wait for him to go out of the crease.

The online user tagged Ashwin and some others including Dinesh Karthik, Harsha Bhogle, etc. in his tweet. The Indian spinner R Ashwin also didn’t take much time in responding and made it clear that he would do it again if the batsman leaves the crease. He also takes a jibe at the online user, saying that he (Ashwin) will certainly take permission from him before doing so and also requests him not to tell his (Ashwin) parents about it.

R Ashwin’s reply read, “I would do it again if a batsman goes out of the crease. I would also like to seek your permission to do the same cos if a bowler needs to run a batter out that way, he/she needs to premeditate the same and hopefully you will approve of the same and not tell my parents about it.”
