99.94: Is ‘Mankading’ really against the spirit of cricket?

Express Sports’ cricket podcast, 99.94, is back! In its first comeback episode, we talk about a rule in cricket that always ends up creating a controversy and has both fans and players divided. Commonly referred to as ‘Mankading’, the debate around the rule once again caused outrage when last week Ravichandran Ashwin gave Aaron Finch a warning for leaving his crease in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Monday in Dubai. To discuss this matter, Mihir and Gaurav are joined by Indian Express’ chief cricket writer Sriram Veera. They talk about whether it is really against the spirit of the game as some call it, whether the outrage around it is justified, why the term itself is problematic, and examples of such rules in other sports.
