Rajasthan opener Jos Buttler was mankaded by R Ashwin during the fourth game of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The dramatic run-out came at a stage when Rajasthan were going strong and Buttler was the reason behind it.  

Buttler smashed his first half-century of this year's IPL and lost his wicket for 69 runs which came in just 43 balls. 

After Buttler was mankaded, there was a heated argument between him and Ashwin but the umpires intervened to stop the tussle.  The decision went to the third umpire which eventually declared Buttler run-out.
