1909 was the year in which year international cricket council was founded. But today on 23rd October 2022 Indian Cheater Council is inaugurated by Marais Erasmus (South African) Umpire after ‘King’ Virat Kohli identified and forced him to call out for a no-ball in Muhammad Nawaz’s and match innings last over.
Today, Pakistan faced India in what Indians presume was a historic match. The system. Technically, Pakistan won the match in spirit if ICC was International Cricket Council and not the Indian Cheater Council. But India is a team known for Mankading and forcing the umpires to side their decisions in India’s favor because that is how the elite panels of Umpires succeed in securing IPL contracts. Worst and most consequential no-ball call in the history of cricket. Later on, the No-ball free-hit bowled three runs.
Very much like how England won the world cup over maximum boundaries! Gentleman game rules are harsh sometimes! We also saw ICC helped England sweep away with World Cup 2019 victory against New Zealand on the principle of most boundaries scored after a tie. Purely a commercial intent to make the host team win. I was there in London Square that night and the crowds were really really happy with the Kilometers of long queues. Hence, the economy thrived for the advertisers that night.
Elite ICC Umpires should not be allowed to partake in the IPL, its a conflict of interest.Nasser Hussain
ICC international cricket council can be labeled as the Indian Cheaters Council. Why would someone ask where is the international cricket council based when 90 percent of the revenue travels from India? Harbhajan Singh says they need not play in Pakistan.
Indian Players have an old habit of mankading
The batter was rightly declared out as the law stands. Law 41.16, which pertains to the “Non-striker leaving his/her ground early,” states: “If the non-striker is out of his/her ground at any time from the moment the ball comes into play until the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the non-striker is liable to be run out.”
However, I think the law should be amended to replace the words “until the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball” by the words “until the bowler enters his/her final delivery stride”.Test Your Cricketing Knowledge – Cricket Trivia Book
The reason is this. The law as it stands allows a bowler to hold on to the ball after the final delivery stride without releasing it, i.e. feign a delivery, in the hope of inducing the batter to leave his/her ground in order to effect the “Mankad”. This is unfair. If allowed, then this may even become routine and affect the normal flow of the game.
I’m sure the rule used to be if the bowler was in the delivery stride they couldn’t stop and break the wicket then some dimwit changed it. An appalling action and will have far-reaching consequences for the game. Win at all costs totally the wrong mentality. Schoolboys such as Ashwin’s Buttler ‘Mankad’ incident from the 2012 ODI is an example. It was always gentlemanly to give a warning. Is it the 1st Mankad at Lords? Thank goodness it was her last game good riddance!

Waqar Younis and Misbah Ul Haq have been found to say that technology should be used appropriately as it may cause Pakistan’s cricket team huge damage and eventually get knocked out of the tournament. During the same match, Ashwin had been seemingly claiming a catch of Shan Masood.
How about protesting against the Ridiculous Umpiring?
Ramiz Raja being Chairman of PCB on another hand should protest at the international cricket council annual conference 2022 on behalf of Pakistan is one of the international cricket council full members so why is Asian Cricket Council President Jay Shah (who is also a member of BCCI) announced that next year’s Asia Cup (which is supposed to happen in Pakistan will not occur in Pakistan) at the behest of Indian team’s security concerns but on a neutral venue. The Chairman of the international cricket council should also intervene to prove their neutrality.
Now, on to today’s episode and drama which went unequivocally in India’s favor. Let this be on record India won this match with cheating, cheating of the highest order. Daylight robbery. A foot outside the crease, never a no-ball. absolute disgrace. A big crime. Virat ran three runs on a dead ball on the free-hit ball after that hit the stumps.
Also if the ball hits the stumpson a free hit, it’s considered as a dead ball.
