Did Ashwin go against IPL's norm of 'No Mankading'?

The world is abuzz following the latest incident of Mankading in the ongoing IPL.

Ashwin is being blamed for a cowardly act and playing against the 'spirit of the game', but the fans are split as to whether Ashwin was right at doing so.

Meanwhile, IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla has said that it was pre-decided not to have Mankading in the IPL.

Here's more.

The story

Ashwin Mankads Jos Buttler, the first instance in IPL

It all happened during the 13th over, while Ashwin was on his run-up to bowl to Sanju Samson, when Buttler left his crease at the non-striker's end, even before Ashwin had released the delivery.

Ashwin didn't complete his delivery and promptly noted action of Buttler to clip the bails.

The umpire referred it upstairs, where the third umpire, after reviewing it, declared Buttler out.

IPL's decision

IPL Chairman says that it was pre-decided not to Mankad

In the latest development, Shukla has said that prior to one of the editions of the IPL, it was decided that there would be no Mankading in the league.

Shukla also said that the decision was taken in the presence of top players like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli.

Therefore, the question arises that did Ashwin go against the norm?

Penalize!

Will Ashwin be penalized for going against IPL's norm?

As Shukla confirmed that the decision was taken seasons ago, not to Mankad in IPL, the question arises that why did Ashwin still go ahead with it.

While it could have been instinctive, or Ashwin had forgotten the norm, it might be likely that he could be questioned by the IPL committee.

He might also be let off with a warning, rather being penalized.

Verdict

Should Mankading be allowed in cricket?

While it continues to be a debatable topic since ages, Mankading has been legal in cricket for a long time.

Although it is considered against the game's spirit, certain players continue to use the method instinctively.

While the decision may vary, the law was formulated to prevent batsmen from taking undue advantage while taking runs.

Therefore, the author feels Ashwin didn't do anything wrong.
