However, Kings XI Punjab's game against RR will always be remembered for the infamous mankading incident involving their skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin. Rajasthan batsman Jos Butler became the victim of this incident where he was dismissed by Ashwin in a quite unusual manner. As Ashwin sensed Butler moving out of his crease, he paused in his action while bowling and removed the bails at the non-striker's end.
