IPL 2019: With Ashwin operating, Warner shows how to avoid 'Mankading'

Sunrisers Hyderabad's David Warner was extra cautious while Ravichandran Ashwin operated in the IPL on Monday night, deliberately dragging his bat inside the safe zone to avoid becoming a victim of 'Mankading'.

The incident happened during the IPL match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab in Mohali.

Warner was seen taking precaution by staying inside the crease during Ashwin's over.

Warner, who was at the non-striker's end, kept dragging his bat inside the safe zone to ensure that he does not become Ashwin's 'Mankad' victim.

The Australian's antics was quickly picked up by the cameras and replayed on the big screen.

The clip of the incident was later uploaded by the official IPL website -- iplt20.com.

Earlier in the tournament, off-spinner Ashwin had dismissed Rajasthan Royals' Jos Buttler without giving him a prior warning and that had attracted a lot of criticism from across the cricket fraternity.
