The mankading controversy lit up the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League. Punjab captain, R Ashwin had effected this sort of dismissal against Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler at Jaipur. It divided the cricketing community like none else. But, now Rajasthan Royals have moved on from the mankading incident as per pacer Jaydev Unadkat.
Unadkat said: “We haven’t even mentioned it once after that day. We have moved on from that incident. It’s time that we focus on the game coming up. Every game is going to be crucial in a tournament like this. Mankading (controversy) has not really made any kind of impact on us and we are looking for what we can do to win the game tomorrow.”
He also praised English international Jos Buttler, who has been in scintillating form for Rajasthan Royals. “It (Buttler’s form) actually adds to that confidence. If someone starts like that, people can take confidence and can learn from the way he has been approaching the game. He has been tremendous for us throughout the last season,” said the left-arm pacer.
