India women’s team star all-rounder Deepti Sharma ran out England batsman Charlotte Dean at the non-striker’s end during the third and final ODI of the series at Lord’s in September. India won the match by 16 runs over the hosts, clinching a 3-0 clean sweep in the series.

The term was previously known as ‘Mankading’, with the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) bringing in new rules from October 1, clearly stating that it is a ‘runout’ and fair dismissal method.

Jos Buttler was warned by Mitchell Starc for backing up too early during the last and final match of the three-match T20I series. This incident happened in the 5th over of the match. When Starc was bowling the fourth ball, the England skipper left the crease before the ball was bowled, and the left-arm fast bowler warned him not to do this. Australia captain Aaron Finch backed Mitchell Starc’s decision and said a warning would be “fair”.

During the T20 World Cup press conference featuring all the captains of the 16-participating teams, no captain from the eight teams (featuring Australia, New Zealand, and England, among others) raised their hand when asked if they would be comfortable with their bowlers indulging in the dismissal.

Amid the controversy over the infamous dismissal, India’s star young player, Ryan Parag took to Twitter to express his thoughts. Parag, who plays for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, said on his official page that he will enforce a ‘Mankad’ next year.

“Im going to mankad/run out sm1 next year and it’s gonna create a fun Twitter debate,” Parag said.

While cricket’s custodians have confirmed the ‘Mankad’ as a runout, Buttler, who also plays for the Rajasthan Royals, has stated that he is not in favour of the dismissal.

“No one wants to see them in the game because they always create such a talking point when it should be about the battle between bat and ball,” Buttler said following the game against Australia yesterday.
