Ravi Ashwin has explained why he decided not to Mankad Australia batsman Aaron Finch during Delhi Capitals’ victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Indian Premier League.

The India spinner said: ‘I stopped and thought for a second whether or not to do the run out.

‘Even when I was thinking, he was just staring at me and didn’t come into the crease. I don’t know why he was staring.

‘But he’s been a good friend since our Kings XI days. He’s a very nice guy, a lot of times we have sat together in the evenings and passed time. So I let it slide as a final warning.

‘I severely feel that the punishment should be severe [for batsman stealing ground]. Dock 10 runs for backing up. No batsman would go out then.

‘Getting a batsman out like this is not a skill. But there’s no option for the bowler either if they keep doing it.’
