    Should Mankading law be outlawed?

    Do you people think that this ****ty rule should be outlawed? In that sense Every bouncer should be no ball without any warning from the umpire.

    No. Batsmen shouldn't be stealing runs FFS. What's the payback if they're halfway down the wicket. I have no sympathy for the batsman who's run out backing up too far.

    But warning should be given first.

    No but it should be changed. Should be penalty runs and not an out imho.

    Why?

    Maybe the guys who are mankaded should learn and respect the rules instead. They have been around for bloody ages.

    So a batsmen shouldn't be able to steal runs but a bowler should be able to break the head of Batsmen(bouncers)?

    Why should they? Batsmen should be able to adapt their running to fit the laws of the game.

    If you don't like the penalty, perhaps the penalty should be changed - a short run if you leave your crease before the bowler hits the delivery stride, or 5 penalty runs as Stefan has suggested.

    Agree with Heath and Niall. It's utter bollocks that there should be any leeway in this regard. It's completely unfair for the batsman to gain any ground at all while backing up; why should there be a warning from the bowling side? There is absolutely no way the batsman can't wait until the bowler bowls before leaving the crease. If you leave the crease before the bowler bowls, you're either trying to steal an advantage, or are unknowingly gaining yourself one anyway.

    Mankading is against the spirit of the game? No. Stealing metres is against the spirit of the game, and if you're going to cheat the rules, don't get pissed when someone mankads you.

    This is probably the worst logic I have ever read on this website.

    Stealing runs is against the laws of the game. Bowling bouncers isn't.

    In a tight match situation when batting (and as a number 11 anyway so perhaps not the best judge), I always used to run in with the bowler so that I would be at a reasonable pace when he hits the crease, but I would never be at risk of a mankad. Also, me running in alongside him could put the bowler off his stride somewhat. No one ever complained.

    More a tactic I used in indoor cricket, but I have used it outdoor in tight limited over situations.

    Gains a legitimate distance advantage by the time the ball reaches the batsman, but no risk of mankad.

    Bowling beamers is but the bowlers get a second chance before he gets removed from the attack. The same should apply to mankad.

    Consider the law and the start of the game a warning, just like any other rule of the game. It's not like a beamer where you've possibly not done it on purpose.

    Batsmen get enough advantages as it is. Stay in your crease. Remove this spirit of cricket BS too like it hasn't died a death along with VHS and bell bottoms. If you want to be a gentleman, there's plenty of other ways to achieve it.

    It is equivalent to scoring off a dropped ball
