The controversy over Butler’s mankading
R Ashwin, who captained Kings Eleven Punjab last season, was out of the Rajasthan Royals batsman who had been out of the mankading. A lot of talks was made about it and Butler misconstrued it. Many luminaries also came in support of Butler, but he remained adamant. Even before playing on behalf of Delhi this time, Ashwin had made it clear if the next time he had a chance, he would not miss the mankading.
