Ravichandran Ashwin ‘Mankad’ controversy: MCC backdrops on ‘Mankind’ verdict
MCC said that the dismissal of Ravichandran Ashwin’s Jos Buttler was “not within the spirit of sports”.
Kings XI Punjab captain Ravichandran Ashwin has made ‘Masked’ batsman Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match at Jaipur on Monday. When the Indian spinner was being sloganed by the International Cricket Council, the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) decided that the ‘Makadad’ rule was necessary, came in the form of a relief. However, Cricket MPs retracted saying that the dismissal of Ashwin Buttler was “not within the game’s spirit”.
On Wednesday, the MCC manager of the British media in the UK, Lars Fraser Stewart said that he has now reviewed his original statement.
Stewart said, “After reviewing the incident again and further reflection, we do not think it was within the spirit of the game.”
We believe that the stagnation between reaching Ashwin’s crease was very long and it was reasonable to expect the ball to be delivered.
“When Butler could have the proper hope of delivering the ball, he was in his field.”
However, “It is also unfair, and against the spirit of cricket, for non-strikers to leave their ground very quickly. All these arguments will not be necessary if non-striker remains in the ground till then that the ball Do not be on your way. Pitch, “he said.
In the statement of MCC read on Tuesday, “Where this law is necessary, without it the non-striker can return to independence, many yards down the pitch and the law is required to prevent such action.”
England batsman Butler was run out on the Kings XI Punjab captain Ashwin on Monday.
This incident was particularly controversial because Butler was on his crest even after Ashwin’s arrival, just waiting for the bowler to get out of his action and proceed before moving the Bell.
