Buttler becomes first victim of 'Mankading' in IPL

IPL 2019 Shane Warne ‘Disgraceful’ R Ashwin After Mankad Controversy

However, the Kings XI captain paused, waiting for Buttler to leave his ground before whipping off the bails.

That gave Curran - who had been carted all over the park - a first IPL wicket and he had a second in the same over when Samson (30) was taken by Ashwin.

Condemnation of the action was swift from the cricketing world, with former Australia opening batsman Matthew Hayden saying in commentary: "A bad, awful gesture, that's my opinion on it".

Warne was outraged. "Why do such a disgraceful & low act like that tonight?"

Incidentally this is not the first time Buttler is out mankading.

Mississippi State responded with three points on free throws, retaking the lead by two with 1:21 remaining in regulation. What's most remarkable about Homesley's late-game barrage is that he's typically an erratic outside shooter at best.

Buttler was livid after being given out in that manner, highlighting how the Mankad method of dismissal has become one of the most contentious in the game.

But Ashwin struck with cricket's most controversial move in the 13th over, running out Buttler at the non-striker's end after pulling out of bowling the ball. Given the kind of dismissal involved, a heated exchange happened on the field between the bowler and the batsman.

Ashwin was unrepentant after the match. According to the rules, there was, of course, nothing wrong in what Ashwin did but the moment proved to be a instant source of controversy with Matthew Hayden, on air at the moment, blasting Ashwin. "All captains sign the IPL wall and agree to play in the spirit of the game". He has had great success as a middle-order batsman in the CPL and finds the boundary every four balls in the last five overs of a T20 innings.

The dismissal seemingly derailed Royals' run-chase as the hosts fell short of a target of 185 by 14 runs, finishing on 170/9 after 20 overs.

Smith will return to action on Friday night in India when he will meet David Warner's Sunrisers Hyderabad side.
