IPL 2019: We Have Moved On From Mankading Incident – Jaydev Unadkat
Ever since the off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin affected Mankading to dismiss Jos Buttler, it has become a headliner in the game of cricket. The players across the globe expressed their disappointment for the poor display of the sportsman spirit in a tournament, which will be witnessed by a huge section of people in the world. Meanwhile, Jaydev Unadkat makes his voice on it.
Chasing 185 for victory, the Royals were cruising when Jos Buttler was at the crease. Controversy unfolded in the 13th over when Ashwin came into bowl and Mankaded Buttler and appealed immediately. The replays have shown Buttler was out from his crease, which ruled him ”out”.
It didn’t make any impact on us – Jaydev Unadkat
Speaking of the controversy, the left-handed fast bowler quoted that the team isn’t thinking about the Mankading incident whatsoever. He added that they left the incident from their minds after the completion of the match.
”To be honest, we didn’t even mention it once after that day. We have moved on from it and its time to focus on the game on hand. It didn’t make any impact on us as such,” said left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat on Thursday evening.
“Even though we lost the first game, we started the tournament well. The way we approached the game and the training we have done, I am pretty confident ahead of the game tomorrow. I am looking forward to it,” he said.
We will learn from our mistakes:
Further, he highlighted the fact that the sudden fall of wickets have made things look bleak for Rajasthan. Unadkat feels that batsmen should have finished the chase. However, he doesn’t want to repeat such mistakes.
“The collapse shouldn’t really have happened but I am sure we will not look to replicate it. Instead, we will learn from our mistakes and move on. It was the first game of the season and we had a bit of a hiccup but if we don’t repeat it in the tournament we will really be happy. It is good that we went through it early on.
All, in all it has become a huge debate in the town right now. Cricketers across the globe are showing their disappointment on the action of Ravichandran Ashwin. It would be interesting to see how things would turn out in the upcoming few games.
