David Warner Feels Mankading Is ‘Spirit Of Cricket Thing’

Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) has adopted multiple new cricket rules. One of these is a modification that defines a bowler running out a batsman at the non-strikers well before the release for the delivery is thrown as a based on specified of dismissal. It should be noted that it’s still a legal form of dismissal in MCC’s records, but it was referred to as an “unfair play.” Here in this article, we get to know why Warner Feels Mankading Is ‘Spirit Of Cricket Thing’.

David Warner still believes Mankading is a ‘spirit of Cricket Thing’

Notwithstanding the MCC changing the rule to exclude it from unjust action rules, Australian opening batsman David Warner now feels run-out at non-strikers is a spirit of cricket concern & batsman’s mistake.

MCC, the members of cricket regulations, upgraded the challenging runout from law 41’s ‘unfair play’ to law 38’s ‘legal runouts’ last week. It’s one of 9 adjustments made by the MCC that will go into action in October 2022.

No doubt, that’s your own fault to get run-out like that: Warner

“I still think the history of the game suggests it’s a spirit of cricket thing… You don’t expect players to do that,” Warner told CA in Karachi ahead of the 2nd Test against Pakistan.

“I do agree with the fact that if you are backing up, and you’re out of your crease by a long way (you are fair game). I think it happened more predominantly at the end of a white-ball 50-over games, or obviously, in T20 cricket we’ve seen it but at the end of the day, as a batsman, you’ve got to stay in your crease”, he said.

“There’s no doubt about that, and if you’re silly enough to get caught out like that and run out, that’s your own fault. You’re told not to leave before the bowler lets the ball go, so just don’t do it,” Warner said.

The decision was first made public when the great ex-India all-rounder Vinoo Mankad ran out Australia opening batsman Bill Brown at the non-end striker’s 2 times: once in a tour match vs an Australia XI at the SCG in 1947, and also in the 2nd Test of the subsequent series.

The Australian media nicknamed it ‘Mankading,’ a term that stayed in common usage but was strongly condemned by giants such as Sunil Gavaskar for being “disrespectful” to Mankad.

Warner believes the change from ‘unfair’ to ‘legal’ will not discourage many players from using it. “I think what’s important for the game of cricket is that bowlers don’t be looking for that, because then you’re going to slow the game down even more”.

“I know from before, being a captain, it can be frustrating and you’re taking time out of the game. So there’s some areas there that need to be addressed, but that’s on an individual basis,” he concluded.
