    Why is Mankading 'against the spirit' of the game?

    Cricinfo has a piece on actions that made the lawmakers think about changes and one of them is a bowler running a batsman out in his delivery stride. They judge it to be against the spirit of the game, and I know the laws have been changed to make this virtually impossible these days.

    Why is this against the spirit, if anything, it's an appropriate punishment for a batsman who's trying to cheat?

    In more & more tight situations when the batsmen are trying to pinch a run or a bye the non-striker's almost a couple metres outside his crease when the bowler lets go of the ball, making the bye infinitely easier than it used to be. Run the buggers out.

    It only used to be against the spirit of the game if a bowler didn't give a warning prior to running the batsman out.

    Pretty odd, I mean should they rule out run outs if the person falls over because its against the spirit of the game?

    Its not, and I do it many times (particularly in crunch situations where the game is on the line) when I play Indoor Cricket.

    If you give a warning, I don't see why it is.

    Why is the bowler expected to warn the batsman, especially if it is obvious that he is doing it to get unfair advantage ?

    The law is perfectly fine as it is.

    The batsman can be runout at anytime before the delivery stride.

    The law is to stop the bowler faking to bowl and then running a batsman out as they are moving anticipating the delivery. Franky that is fine as its preventing clown like behaviour.

    Once the act of delivery has started then lets focus on delivering the ball rather than playing silly beggars.

    Ya fielders should also give a warning to the batsman before taking a catch otherwise it's against the spirit of the game...

    Does the bowler have to stop in his run up to give this warning or can it be given after a delivery?
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Had a Mankading in a school U11 game the other week.

    Batsman was about six yards down the wicket before our spinner was anywhere near his delivery stride... it has been suggested I should not have allowed it!

    I am assuming that you were the Umpire, which is very hard as usual in pretty much every tough situation in the middle.

    I am just curious about the Umpire's role here - Can the Umpire do anything in case someone has been mankaded ? If the fielding side appeals for an out, what choice does an umpire have apart from giving the batsman out ?

    And if the umpire says 'Not Out', wouldn't that be a wrong decision ?

    Captain of a side I was playing in Mankaded a bloke on 99 once.

    Umpire said "You're ****ing kidding aren't you?"

    "No".

    I can't stand it in indoor. I know it's perfectly acceptable and part of the rules but I don't like it and it usually leads to a pretty poor relationship between the two sides from that point on.
