The cricketing fraternity is cleaved into two spheres on Indian number three Punam Raut's decision to walk away despite the umpire adjudging her not-out. The umpire was unmoved when Sophie Molineux appealed for caught behind, but Raut took matters into her own hands and ambled off the field. While her bold decision received widespread praise, some found a fault with her for allowing the opposition a free wicket. Opinions were starkly divided on social media with arguments circling around in the backdrop of the ''spirit of cricket''.
