The word ‘mancoding’ is now well known not only in the IPL but also in the entire cricket world for the benefit of Ravichandran Ashwin. The bowler who is on the non-striking end often gets out of the crease before the bowler releases the ball.
If he is bowled out then that is ‘mancading’. Ashwin has caused eye pain to many before. He has been accused of not paying attention to the cricketing spirit. Everywhere in the world, there is a debate about the cricketing consciousness.
And there Ashwin continues to fight for Mankading. The Delhi Capitals off-spinner also got Hersha Vogle as his partner in the fight for Mankading.
Bangladesh left-arm pacer Mostafiz bowled a no ball for Rajasthan Royals. In the replay, when the logic of that no-ball was being tested, it was seen that,
Chennai Super Kings batsman Dwayne Bravo, who is on the non-strike edge, has come a long way from the bowling crease. Mostafiz didn’t notice so much, maybe he could have ‘branded’ Bravo out.
Seeing this picture, Hersha Vogle ruled in favor of dismissing Mostafiz and other bowlers in the world. Hersha has washed away those who look down on Mancad Out for the sake of the spirit of cricket.
After showing the picture of Mostafiz’s delivery on the TV screen, Hersha sat in the commentary room and said, ‘Look how much Bravo is out now. So I say that the team meeting should also take full advantage of whatever is in the rules. In this case, it is the work of stupid people to talk about the spirit of the game.
