JAIPUR: Indian bowler R Ashwin has come under fire for Mankading England batsman Jos Buttler during a match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Monday.

Butler was livid after he was Mankaded by Ashwin for 69 in a match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab in Jaipur.

Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden described Ashwin’s act as ‘very, very disappointing’ while Harsha Bhogle defended his action, saying that it was within the rules of the game.

Buttler walked off and was far from pleased with what happened.

Meanwhile, England cricketers took to Twitter to slam Ashwin for his behaviour.
