A controversy erupted on Day 5 of the Duleep Trophy 2022 final in Coimbatore on Sunday, September 25, as West Zone skipper Ajinkya Rahane asked Yashasvi Jaiswal to leave the field.

The young West Zone opener was involved in an ugly altercation with South Zone batter T Ravi Teja. In the 50th over of South Zone’s second innings, Jaiswal was seen having a go at Ravi Teja. Things got very ugly and the umpires had to intervene. Rahane also stepped in to try and calm down Jaiswal.

In the 57th over though, the umpires again went up to have a chat with the West Zone skipper over Jaiswal’s behavior. After a discussion, Rahane walked towards Jaiswal and asked instructed him to leave the field. The latter reluctantly walked off.

The Twitterati praised Rahane for keeping the spirit of the game intact, even if it meant sending his own player off the field. Here are some reactions to the incident:

Captaincy lessons from Ajinkya Rahane. Yashasvi Jaiswal’s continues chirping around Ravi Teja got him two warnings from Rahane after umpires intervention. When Jaiswal didn’t let up, he got the marching orders from the skipper. #Duleeptrophyfinal #SpiritOfTheGame
Good to see Jaiswal back in the field, after knowing his mistake, good from Captain Rahane.
Rahane looks soft but this is a move only a tough captain will make 🔥 If it's the fault of Jaiswal, then Rahane was brave!…
Rahane's decision to send Jaiswal off the field means West Zone is bowling now with 10 men. Bizarre but after repeated warning, intervention by umpire and captain, Jaiswal kept on with the expletives towards Ravi Teja - and he was given his marching orders.#DuleepTrophy
Captain Ajinkya Rahane 👏 if you have scored double hundred but still you have to stay in limit. Huge fan of jaiswal but good one from Rahane
Jaiswal made 265 and was the hero of the match. Ajinkya Rahane asked him to leave the ground for discipline behaviour. Rahane giving zero fak for indiscipline.…
Ajinkya Rahane sends Yashasvi Jaiswal off the field after consistently sledging the batters 😳Bold move from the West Zone captain 🏏📸 - BCCI
Jaiswal was warned twice for pointing out South Zone batter Ravi Teja and having some words with him. 3rd Time Skipper Rahane showed him the way to the pavilion. This shows that discipline in the game is a must. 👍#CricketTwitter #Cricket #Jaiswal #Rahane…
West Zone win Duleep Trophy. congrats to the team n the skipper Ajinkya Rahane. kudos to Rahane for proving a strict captain n sending off Yashasvi Jaiswal for disciplinary reasons for on field behaviour. congrats to Yashasvi too for his 5th ton in just 7 matches. this was a 200
@CricCrazyJohns kohli would have joined jaiswal and encouraged him.GOAT Captain Rahane
Rahane sends off Yashashwi Jaiswal from the cricket ground for continously sledging batsmen despite repeated warnings.Lost his touch as a batsman but a sharp and top clase captain.
A very good example of sportsmanship by Ajinkya Rahane sending yashasvi Jaiswal out from field after 2 or 3 warnings from umpires to jaiswal as he was sledging personally to both batters of South zone #Duleeptrophyfinal @ajinkyarahane88
Great move from Ajinkya Rahane in sending Jaiswal out of the field. Huge respect!!Haven't seen anything like this yet.#Duleeptrophyfinal
Only Rahane can handle Jaiswal better #DuleepTrophy
@BoriaMajumdar @RevSportz It's must be correct...Rahane would never do this unless there is something very serious....never heard incident like this before...Jaiswal will learn lot from this...this is not gully cricket

“I believe in always respecting your opponents” - Rahane reacts to Jaiswal incident

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Rahane opened up on the Jaiswal incident. Asked about the same, he opined:

“I believe in always respecting your opponents, umpires and match officials. So you have to handle certain incidents in a certain manner.”

"Whatever a senior like Ajju bhai (Ajinkya Rahane) says, I take that seriously and try to follow his instructions."
