Ever since Ravichandran Ashwin 'mankaded' Jos Buttler during the Rajasthan vs Punjab encounter on Monday, the skipper has been at the receiving end. 

A massive controversy has been made of the run-out Ashiwn did that left the cricketing world divided. Even the ICC had cleared via a tweet what Ashwin did on the field saying "It's within the rules"

Ashwin, who was slammed for disrespecting the game, also received support from various quarters, with one being from commentator Harsha Bhogle. 

However, Harsha's supported to Ashwin did not go well with the Shane Warne as they went to the extent of accusing Harsha Bhogle of being biased and urged him to stick up "for your own".

Shane Warne slammed Ravichandran Ashwin with a series of tweets that seems it was also meant for Harsha Bhogle.

Buttler had given Rajasthan a flying start in their run-chase and looked unstoppable after scoring his seventh half-century in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

However, spinner Ashwin put an end to Buttler's stay at the crease with one of the most controversial dismissals. 

The incident took place in the 13th over with Rajasthan needing 77 off 43 balls with nine wickets in hand. Ashwin paused while delivering the ball and took the bails off at the non-striker's end as Buttler stepped out of the crease.

The on-field umpire immediately signalled for the decision to be taken by the third umpire, who decided to give Buttler out.

The wicket was the changing point in the game, as Punjab went on to restrict Rajasthan to 170 for nine in the chase to register a 14-run win.
