MCC changes stance on mankading controversy

The mankading controversy had sparked a great debate in the cricketing world as people seem to be divided over the whole situation. The clarity of game laws has done no good to the cause as many people still believe that mankading is unfair.

After supporting the actions of Ravichandran Ashwin at first, the MCC has changed their stance regarding the whole incident as they have concluded that the bowler was at mistake and he violated the laws while doing so.

“Having extensively reviewed the incident again, and after further reflection, we don’t think it was within the spirit of the game,” said the reviewed explanation.

According to the replays, Buttler was in his crease when Ashwin stopped during his action and took the bails off as soon as the batsman left his crease.
