To this comment Ashwin replied by stating “sometimes u can have opinions watching people from afar, so it can happen.. Watching on Tele and reality could be so different.☺️”
Ashwin’s “Mankad” incident during the IPL tournament earned him many haters inside his own country. He also had a little bit of banter with Kohli, the captain of Indian cricket team. “I actually didn’t load and he (Buttler) left the crease. That’s always been my take on it because it’s my half of the crease. I was not even at the crease, he wasn’t even looking at me and he just left the place,” Ashwin said on the day of the incident happened.
Ashwin plays for Tamil Nadu in domestic cricket and captains Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League. He is the fastest Indian bowler (also in some records the fastest in the world) to reach the 50-, 100-, 150-, 200-, 250- and 300-wicket mark in Test cricket. In 2016, he became the third Indian to win the ICC Cricketer of the Year award.
