The incident took place yesterday in RR vs KXIP match. The incident took place in the 13th over while RR was batting. Ashwin while bowling his fourth and last over of the spell, stopped and took the bails off from non-striker end wickets while Jos Buttler was out of the crease. Ashwin appealed out to the on field umpire which redirected the decision to third umpire. As per the law, the third umpire declared Buttler out. However, as per the spirit of game these types of decisions have always raised eyebrows.

Jos Buttler was looking fabulous before he was declared out. He has scored 69 runs in just 43 balls and was all set to win match for RR. But the mankading incident took place and Jos Buttler was declared out. After him RR wickets fell one after other and RR lost the match. The result of the match would have been different if Jos Buttler was not declared out.
