India's off-spinner R Ashwin was once again trending on social media after he had a discussion with umpire Nitin Menon on Day 3 of the Kanpur Test against New Zealand. Menon warned Ashwin for his follow-through as the spinner was running across after delivering the ball.

Menon and Ashwin had a long chat and even stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane join them, but the off-spinner didn't stop and continued doing it from the next delivery.

Ashwin's follow-through was blocking the on-field umpire's view and it also didn't allow the non-strike to run, as pointed out by the on-air commentators.

Here is the video: 

New Zealand's opening stand of 151 runs has put them ahead of India in the ongoing Test match. India remained wicketless on Day 2, after being bowled out for 345 runs in the first innings, and could only pick two wickets in the morning session of Day 3.

For India, Shreyas Iyer scored a hundred on his debut and got out on 105 runs. Tim Southee was New Zealand's pick of the bowler with a five-wicket haul. 

The Kiwis have done well to get closer to India's total in the first innings before the pitch starts assisting the spinners more.
