The majority of twitter was against Ravichandran Ashwin's decision and some of them argued that the action is in the laws of the game. Ravichandran Ashwin's behaviour about the incident too has been widely discussed. "It’s within the laws of the game but Jos Butler should have been warned by Ashwin before that. Very Surprised ! Remember Ashwin doing the same in an international game where Sehwag withdrew the appeal" posted Mohammad Kaif. "If @josbuttler had been warned well that’s fine, if he hasn’t and it’s the first time I think @ashwinravi99 is completely out of order, watch how often this happens from now on !!!!!!! #IPL" posted Micheal Vaughan.
