Twitterati React After Ricky Ponting Talked About R Ashwin’s Stance On Mankading

Delhi Capitals’ Head Coach Ricky Ponting recently stirred the debate on Ravichandran Ashwin’s stance on Mankading that left the cricket fraternity stunned.

It was during the 2019 edition of the IPL, in a match against KXIP and RR, when R Ashwin controversially dismissed Jos Buttler using the Mankad. Later, he had found himself at the receiving end of criticism for not playing within the spirits of the game.

Recently, when Ricky Ponting was asked about his views on Mankading, he claimed that he will talk to R Ashwin asking him to not indulge in it, as it is against the spirit of the game. He had said:

“I’ll be having a chat with him about (Mankading), that’s the first thing I’ll do. That is going to be a hard conversation I will have with him. I think, even him, looking back now, probably he’d say it was within the rules and he’s right to do it.”

He added:

“But this is not within the spirit of the game, not in the way I want, at least with the Delhi Capitals anyway.”

However, seems like the statements of Ricky Ponting didn’t go down well with the netizens, who are now slamming the cricketer left, right, and center over his statements. Twitterati also came up with various incidents, where Ricky Ponting was guilty of not playing within the spirits of the game.

The fans are backing R Ashwin on this debate and are claiming that R Ashwin was right within the rules and limits.
