Ashwin – Buttler Mankad saga is not leaving the off-spinner alone on and off the field even after six months of the incident. Fans and the cricket fraternity keep making the fun of the incident and keep reminding Ashwin the incident time and again. The incident itself was a hot meme material soon after the incident. You would have seen many memes on social media connecting Mankad and Ashwin.
In a latest turn of events, on twitter, a user shared picture of a ball box having a number of cricket balls with Mankad written on them. The user captioned the photo as, “My gift to Ashwin for Christmas” trolling Ashwin for the incident.
The tweet went viral in no time but Rajasthan Royals, who were victim of the Mankad incident, seemed too excited about the comment as the franchise shared the user’s tweet with a caption, “No points for guessing who is adding this to their cart for #IPL2020” by their official account.

However, R Ashwin, the witty consumer, again had a last laugh as he replied, “Might well be a good collection for the non-strikers who meander along 😂😂👍🏻. Good banter nevertheless ☺️ wish you all a happy 2020. 🔥”

Earlier, on Monday, when former Kings XI Punjab captain was having a question-answer round on the twitter with his fans, a fan came up with a surprising question as he asked Ashwin: “Who are the potential batsmen you can Mankad this IPL?”
However, Ashwin did not shy away from replying as he clearly replied:“Anyone that goes out of the crease. ✅,”
With the things turning out very interestingly on social media, only time will tell if the history repeats itself in the upcoming IPL but one thing is sure that no batsman will even try to leave the crease when Ashwin comes to ball. R Ashwin, after being traded by Kings XI Punjab ahead of the auction, will represent Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020.
