On Monday at the Dubai International Stadium, Ashwin stopped at the point of his delivery stride but chose to not run out Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) opener Aaron Finch for stepping outside the crease at the non-striker's end.

The incident took place during the third over of RCB's run-chase. Ashwin was getting ready to bowl to Devdutt Padikkal, and Finch had gone a long way outside the crease at the other end. The DC bowler paused his bowling action to warn Finch, instead of running him out or mankading him.

Ashwin had mankaded Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler last IPL when he was the captain of Kings XI Punjab. His action was received with divided opinions across the cricketing world, with some supporting him and others criticising him.
