Mankad style dismissal of Jos Butler one of the highlights of IPL 2019

During IPL 2019, Ravi Ashwin used the Mankad method to dismiss Jos Buttler when Kings XI Punjab played Rajasthan Royals. In this, the player is not run-out or bowled out, but the stumps are taken when the player is not in the crease. This method of dismissal is not illegal but does not incline with the spirit of the game.

The England team batsman was at the non-strikers end and went out of the crease before the ball was released. Therefore, Ashwin seized the opportunity and dropped the stumps with the ball.

The Test Cricket captain of the England team, Eoin Morgan, did not appreciate this at all. He said, “I can’t believe what I’m seeing!! IPL Terrible example to set for young kids coming through. In time I think Ashwin will regret that.”
