Whilst the topic of ‘Mankad’ is considered not in the spirit of the sport, the action by a bowler to dismiss the non-striker batman if he or she has crossed the crease ahead of the release of the ball is perfectly inside the principles of the game.
When Ravindran Ashwin did the similar to Jos Buttler for the duration of Kings XI Punjab vs Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Leading League (IPL) sport, all questioned his ‘cricketing spirit’.
Even so, right now, a 16-yr-outdated female from Cameroon, who manufactured her debut on intercontinental cricket from Uganda did not just Manka 1 or two but a total of four non-striker batswomen.
