- Shane Warne brands Ravi Ashwin ‘disgraceful’
- Mitchell Johnson and Dean Jones offer support
It’s the manoeuvre that polarises opinion like no other whenever it rears its head, so it was little surprise the latest execution of a Mankad, performed by Ravi Ashwin to dismiss Jos Buttler in an IPL game, sparked fierce debate among the cricket community.
The controversial tactic involves the bowler checking his run up to take off the bails at the non-striker’s end with the backing-up batsman out of his crease. Named after the brilliant Indian all-rounder Vinoo Mankad, the run-out is technically legal but widely considered to be against the spirit of the game.
