Why Upholding the Rules of the Game is Crucial in Cricket and the Workplace?


As cricket fans, we all know that the game is not just a sport, but a religion in itself. And like any other religion, it has its own set of commandments - the laws of cricket, as laid down by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). These laws are sacrosanct and are meant to be followed to the letter.


Unfortunately, in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023, we have seen a flagrant violation of these laws. The victim of this travesty of justice is none other than the G.O.A.T, Virat Kohli.


In the recent match, Kohli was given out in a controversial manner, without the on-field umpires - #NitinMenon & #MichaelGough and third umpire - #RichardIllingworth - referring to MCC's law on point 36.1.3. This law clearly states that if the ball makes contact with the striker's person and bat simultaneously, then it shall be considered as the ball having first touched the bat. Yet, the umpires chose to ignore this law, and instead gave Kohli out based on their own interpretation of the incident.


This decision has sparked a major controversy in the cricketing world, and for good reason. If the umpires are not going to follow the laws of the game, then what's the point of having them in the first place? The laws of cricket are there to ensure fairness and objectivity in the game, and to ensure that every player is judged by the same standards.


The fact that #ViratKohli was given out in a manner that clearly violated the laws of the game is not just a matter of bad decision-making, it is a blatant disregard for the integrity of the sport. It is an insult to the fans, who expect nothing but the best from their beloved game.


As fans of the game, we need to stand up for what's right. We need to demand that the umpires follow the laws of cricket, without fear or favour. We need to ensure that every decision is made based on the merits of the case, and not on the whims and fancies of the umpires.


We owe it to the game to ensure that justice is done, and that the laws of cricket are upheld at all times. It is time for us to speak up, to demand accountability and transparency in the game we love. Let us not allow the game to be sullied by the actions of a few individuals who refuse to play by the rules. The time has come to stand up and be counted. Let us do what's right for the sake of the game.


But it's not just about cricket right? What about our upholding rules in the workplace? We draw parallels between this decision and the importance of upholding the rules of the game in the workplace. We argue that just as in cricket, following the rules in the workplace is essential for fairness, objectivity, and integrity.


The parallels between upholding the rules in cricket and the workplace cannot be ignored. In both settings, following the rules is essential to ensure fairness, objectivity, and integrity. Just as cricket has its laws that are meant to ensure a level playing field, the workplace has its own set of rules and regulations that are meant to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. Upholding these rules can help to build a culture of trust and respect, where employees feel valued and their contributions are recognized. It is a fundamental aspect of creating a workplace environment where everyone can thrive.


In conclusion, I feel the controversial decision against Virat Kohli in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 has raised important questions about the need to uphold the rules of the game. As fans of cricket, we have a responsibility to demand accountability and transparency in the sport we love. We also need to draw parallels between upholding the rules in cricket and the workplace, recognizing that following the rules is essential for fairness, objectivity, and integrity in both settings. By upholding the rules, we can create a culture of trust and respect, where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. So let us work together to ensure that the rules are always respected, in cricket and beyond.
