The cricketing trends on social media today revolved around the infamous Mankad dismissal affected by Ravi Ashwin against Jos Buttler in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The game between the Rajasthan Royals and the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) was all about the controversy. Ashwin, in the 13th over, had stopped in his delivery stride and waited for the batsman to go out of the crease before disturbing the bails to find Buttler out of the crease.

There have been differed opinions all day from the cricketing fraternity with many lashing out at Ashwin for going against the spirit of the game. But there were few, especially the bowlers, who took his side and felt that the batsmen should never get the unfair advantage by backing up at the non-striker’s end. The fraternity was busy voicing out their opinions on the matter.


Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah who got injured to stop the hearts of millions of Indian fans has got back to the nets and seems fit to play in the game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Virat Kohli also posted the video of his training session and was as usual excited to sweat it out in the nets.
