Do keepers warn batsmen before stumping them? No. Then why should bowlers warn batsmen before running them out. Mankading is fair and square and within the laws of the game. Only thing against spirit of cricket here is batsmen trying to gain advantage by leaving crease. #U19CWC

I fail to understand how cricket is okay with actual cheating but has issues with something that is within the laws of the game i.e; mankading. Itna issue hai tou ban mankading altogether.
