Buttler - Mankad decision was wrong
Jos Buttler says "probably the wrong decision was made" when he was 'Mankaded' by Ravi Ashwin and says he won't let it happen again.
The England all-rounder was given out during the Rajasthan Royals' defeat to Kings XI Punjab last month when, having already hit 69 off 43 balls, bowler Ashwin removed bails during his run-up - with Buttler just out of his ground.
That type of dismissal is known as a 'Mankad' after the former India all-rounder Vinoo Mankad did it in a Test match against Australia in 1947.
Having previously been the victim of a similar dismissal playing for his country against Sri Lanka in 2014, Buttler insists he won't let it happen again.
The 28-year-old told the Daily Mirror: "At the time, I was really disappointed with it. I didn't like the style of it.
"What was more disappointing is that suddenly over the next two games I found myself being really conscious of it and it is quite distracting.
"That is why it was nice to get some runs in the win and get back to thinking about batting and not worrying about how I back up at the non-striker's end.
"I think if you look at the footage, probably the wrong decision was made because at the time he was expected to release the ball I was in my crease.
"I didn't like what happened and I didn't agree with it, but what can you do?
"I must be the only person to get out twice in that way as well! I'll make sure it never happens again."
