The Mankading is in the news after Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) skipper Ravichandran Ashwin dislodged the bails to dismiss Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) Jos Buttler. The entire cricket fraternity stood divided whether the decision was correct or was against the spirit of the game. Later, Mumbai Indians (MI) all-rounder Krunal Pandya warned KXIP batter, Mayank Agarwal, as he was leaving the popping crease before the ball was being released.
