India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has said that he will ‘Mankad’ any batsman who gets out of the crease in the next year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).
The cricketer was doing an ‘Ask Ash’ session on micro-blogging website Twitter and during it, he was asked by a fan as to who he plans to dismiss via ‘Mankading’. “Who are the potential batsmen you can Mankad this IPL? “ the fan tweeted. Ashwin replied saying: “Anyone who goes out of the crease”. During the 2019 IPL, Ashwin ended up dismissing Rajasthan Royals’ batsman Jos Buttler through the ‘Mankad’ and this riled up various cricketers and fans worldwide.
