IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla Weighs In On Ravichandran Ashwin’s ‘Mankad’ Controversy

Written by Abhishek Patil

Ravichandran Ashwin sparked a massive controversy after ‘mankading’ Jos Buttler during the RR vs KXIP IPL 2019 match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday night. The Kings XI captain received a lot of flak on social media platforms from former and current players for his actions with IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla also weighing in on the contentious issue.

Following the controversy in Jaipur, Shukla took to Twitter and spoke of a meeting, attended by the IPL captains and match referee, where it was decided “if non striking batsman steps out bowler as a courtesy will not run him out”.

Shukla said both MS Dhoni (Chennai Super Kings skipper) and Virat Kohli (Royal Challengers Bangalore captain) were present at the said meeting.
