Sourav Ganguly Time out

The time-out incident with Angelo Mathews has created a stir in the cricket world, as some are supporting this thing, while many are describing it as against the spirit of the game.  

Although this incident did not happen for the first time, when India toured South Africa in 2006-07, such a situation was created in which the batter could fall trapped to time out. 

This incident was happened during India’s golden batting period, when Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly all were part of team India. 

India vs South Africa Time-out Match 

When India’s second wicket fell in the second inning of the last match of the series against South Africa in January 2007, Sachin, who used to bat at number 4, was not allowed to bat due to time he spent off the field. The next batsman, Laxman, was taking the shower, so Ganguly had to step up in that situation. He changed and started his preparation to be ready to bat which took almost 6 minutes.  

According to the Test rule, the time out period is 3 minutes, and Graeme Smith, the captain of South Africa at that time, had this opportunity to use the time out rule to make Ganguly a victim of time out, but Smith did not do so, and Ganguly got a full chance to bat. 

Angelo Mathews Time-out incident  

During the Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 match in Delhi, an experienced Sri Lankan player had to face time out. 

Batting first, Sri Lanka lost their fourth wicket on the score of 135, and Angelo Mathews, who came in to bat at number 6 came inside the ground with wrong helmet, and looking at it he immediately signaled towards the team dugout to bring another helmet, time was running and Umpire had to step in to talk to Mathews, while Bangladesh’s captain Shakib Al Hasan looked unhappy and appealed umpire for time out, which was accepted by umpire as per MCC rules, making Angelo Mathews the first player to be dismissed for time out.
