Manking has always been a topic of discussion in cricket. Two years ago, Indian Prime Minister Ravichandran Ashwin made headlines after Mancadira Joss Butler during an Indian Premier League match between Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) and Rajasthan Royals.
Ashwin has always been a staunch supporter of the dismissal, but many have expressed reservations against him, saying it is against the spirit of the game.
The debate continues to divide views in cricket circles, and Ashwin has resumed the debate on his official Twitter account. Reacting to an article by former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjakar, Ashwin spoke of Mancading.
Manjakar was of the opinion that rules like “free kick” are in favor of the batsmen, to which Ashwin replied: “Come on @sanjaymanjrekar, the free hit is a great marketing tool and captures the imagination of all fans. Let’s add a free ball for the bowlers every time the dough leaves the non-attackers finished early, the wicket from this ball will reduce 10 runs from the analysis of the bowlers and in total. ”
In a brief discussion with a fan, Ashwin said that many bowlers choose not to “Mancade” because of the mental trauma associated with it. “The mental trauma that bowlers can endure stops them from doing so,” Ashwin wrote.
South African spinner Tabraiz shamsi, then joined the debate, saying there should be no “fear” among bowling regarding Batsman’s “mankading”.
@ @ ashwinravi99 I think everyone should do bowling without any fear .. it’s within the rules of the game. Why should bowlers be abused for the “spirit of cricket” when in fact batsmen steal yards and THIS is against the spirit cricket. That’s the real truth, “Shamsi wrote.
Ashwin will return to action in the final of the first World Test Championship, to be held June 18-22 in Southampton. India will meet New Zealand for the title clash.
