Buttler reveals what he said to Ashwin

It became a big talking point in the cricket world when Kings XI Punjab captain Ravichandran Ashwin decided to Mankad Rajasthan Royals' Jos Buttler in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 game earlier this season.

The Rajasthan Royals star had a heated exchange with the captain of Kings XI Punjab after being run out at the non-striker's end while backing up in an incident that sparked an international debate on the "spirit of cricket".

However, Jos Buttler has revealed that he has forgotten everything and has moved on from the incident. The opening batsman was seen in a conversation with Ashwin after the dismissal took place.

"I just asked him if he really wishes to play the game that way. Whether he thought it was the right thing to do. And he obviously thought it was, in his opinion," Buttler said.
