In doing so, they were becoming unbalanced. Players usually lift their back foot after playing such a shot to regain their balance. This is natural.

Powell also raised his leg, but kept it in the crease before Kishan stumped. Some social fans are criticizing this attitude of Kishan, while some are also supporting it. However, Kishan was absolutely right under the rules. Had Powell’s feet been in the air when the ball hit the stumps, he would have been declared out.
