Ashwin was seen giving a warning to Royal Challengers Bangalore opener Aaron Finch in Dubai on Monday after the batsman had backed up too far at non-striker's end.
On Monday, during RCB's chase of 197, Ashwin stopped short of his run-up to warn Finch about stepping outside the crease a little too early.
The Delhi Capitals off-spinner smiled wryly after catching Royal Challengers Bangalore opener Aaron Finch short of the crease during their IPL match.
Ashwin has joined the Delhi Capitals, coached by Ponting who warned recently he would not like the spinner to repeat the tactic, though legal, when the virus-delayed 2020 season starts.
Jindal said that rules are meant to be followed, days after the issue again became a talking point when Ricky Ponting said that he wouldn't allow Ashwin to resort to such an act.
The word 'Mankading' has negative connotation, bowlers not at fault, says KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik
Karthik said the dismissal should not be called 'Mankading', especially when the ICC and MCC call it just a run out.
England batsman Buttler was 'Mankaded' by Ashwin at a crucial moment in last year's IPL season during a match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals.
Ashwin, who was the skipper of Kings XI Punjab in 2019 had 'Mankad' Buttler when he went out from his crease.
Incidentally, its' also a year since the infamous dismissal where R Ashwin outwits Jos Buttler by mankading in IPL happened.
His remarks came as Afghanistan's spinner resorted to 'Mankading' to dismiss a Pakistan batsman in the quarter-final of the U-19 World Cup.
