lol@social I'm not sure what kind of bender you're on here but you've been so off base it's kinda pointless trying to reason you out of a position you didn't use reason to acquire.
The only law that was added after Bodyline became 46.4.vi, and the contemporary discussions centre largely around the physical danger and difficulty of scoring. It also went practically unenforced at periods, particularly when WI was playing in the mid-sixties and eighties, and SA in late fifties-early sixties.
Might add that in 1947 - well within the memory of Bodyline, the new law 46.4.vii, accompanied by an addition to law 27, was made to quite clearly specify that the batsmen leaving their ground early is unfair and the fielding side can run them out "by any recognised method".
The restriction of fielders on the leg side exists because it was perceived leg theory bowling was making the game uninteresting to watch. The 'spirit of cricket' had nothing to do with it. Worth noting this situation would never have arisen had umpires been enforcing the 1935 LBW rule correctly.
Sorry there's no point in discussing this with someone so lacking in basic knowledge of how the laws of the game came about (or their historical contexts or vagaries). I explained (amongst others) it to you and you completely ignored me. This is Migara levels of stupidity.lol
Spirit of cricket laws were enacted after bodyline in the 30s
When they failed, leg side fielding restrictions were put in place in 1957
That’s 65 years ago ?
The Windies never bowled bodyline because it wasn’t legal and you can’t do it today
Do you actually know what bodyline is?
Just lolSorry there's no point in discussing this with someone so lacking in basic knowledge of how the laws of the game came about (or their historical contexts or vagaries). I explained (amongst others) it to you and you completely ignored me. This is Migara levels of stupidity.
None of the law changes had anything to do with 'spirit of cricket' and were enacted mainly due to practical concerns about the game.
If you're so smart, here's the 1947 laws. Go point out to me the part about the 'spirit'.
I've played and umpired. But that's a classic deflecting argument, it has has no bearing on the point.Just lol
Bodyline had EVERYTHING to do with the spirit of cricket as does the Mankad
Have you ever played?
Not trying to be cruel but it would explain a lot if you hadn’t
History lessonI've played and umpired. But that's a classic deflecting argument, it has has no bearing on the point.
Once again, put up or shut up. The Laws are there, the history is at your fingertips. It's not my job to prove your point for you.
Not at all. The only way a mankad happens is by the non striker being out of their crease. All the faking in the world wont get a batsman out if they stay in their crease and don't try to gain an unfair advantage.Faking is the only way a Mankad happens
