Ashwin, the bad boy or the clever one ?

In a recent IPL cricket match between KingsXI Punjab and  Rajasthan Royals, there was much controversy and bitterness. Towards the end of the 13th over rather 12.5, Ravichandran Ashwin went into bowling, but found the batsman of RR Jos Butler was clearly out of the crease. Ashwin stopped the bowling and exchange a few words with Butler and then took the bails out. This is a case of “Mankading”: the batsman was out of the crease while the ball was about to be delivered. Jos was declared out.

This started the war on the media. Ashwin was criticized by all. He did not find any solace even in his Indian supporters. This is terribly bad for professional cricket. When one player is sent to bat or to bowl, he is supposed to know the rules of the game. Simply swinging the bat and delivering a spin is not enough. There are other minute things that need to be kept in mind when playing on a professional level.

Ashwin was termed unprofessional, not spirited but narrow minded, and was hell bent on bringing down his opponent by any means.

The other way of seeing it is that Ashwin not only knows how to spin  and to bat but also the other fine details of the rules that are overlooked in the passion of game.
