Broken Rules

England is drooping. India defeated the English women's cricket team for a third-straight one-day international whitewash, and the English whinged at the final play, a mankad dismissal or non-bowler run-out (essentially a baseball pick-off, where the runner is caught leading by too much). Legitimate & within the rules, why is it controversial? The BBC quotes "I can't tell you what ill feeling this is going to create" - discounting centuries of pro-colonial propaganda, racism & discord.
