India versus Sri Lanka: Ravichandran Ashwin backs Mohammed Shami and wonders why mankading is banned so frequently

Ravichandran Ashwin, India’s top offspinner, said that he was surprised to find so many “taboos” about the “Mankad” method of dismissal. He also questioned the reason bowlers are always treated differently.

Ravichandran Ashwin, India’s top offspinner, said that he was surprised to find so many “taboos” about the “Mankad” method of dismissal. He also questioned the reason bowlers are always treated differently.

During the first one-day international on January 10 in Guwahati, Dasun Shanaka left the crease while backing up, and veteran Indian pacer Mohammed Shami tried to run him out at the non-striker’s end. Because Indian captain Rohit Sharma got involved and turned down Shami’s request, Shanaka, who was on 98 at the time, was able to score his century. Ashwin, a vocal proponent of the dismissal strategy, asserted that the umpire must declare the batter out on Saturday in support of Shami.

“Of course, Shami’s runout… Shami ran Shanaka out in the non-striker’s end when he was on 98, and he also appealed,” the statement continues. Rohit was the one who enticed me. “So many individuals immediately tweeted about that,” Ashwin stated on his YouTube channel.

“Hello, friends! I will only repeat one thing. The game’s location is irrelevant. That is an acceptable way to fire someone. Rohit stated that he had withdrawn the appeal against Shanaka due to the Lankan captain’s 98 during the post-game presentation. Sri Lanka lost the match by 67 runs in spite of Shanaka’s unbeaten 108-run innings.

Ashwin made the following statement: No one will verify the validity of the appeal with the captain if you request an LBW or caught-behind appeal. “If the bowler appeals, they will release the bowler, and that will be the end of it. The umpire is obligated to declare a player out if he is out, even if one fielder appeals. stigmas that accompany this method of firing someone. Is it true that the bowler’s actions on their own are enough to cause him to be kicked out?

He stated, “The bowler has the right to make that decision, dismissal, or appeal.” Leaving the game to a batter, Ashwin compared: A batter has nicked and walked without waiting for the umpire’s decision in numerous games. The batsman’s captain will not arrive in time to inquire, “With whose permission did you walk that way?” Did you disregard the goal of the team? For more fun, return. He went on to say that “these diverse treatments for batters and bowlers have been taking place for so many years now.”

“Mankading” refers to run-outs that occur when a non-striker batter exits the crease while backing up before the bowler releases the ball. The name was inspired by Vinoo Mankad’s first known method of dismissal, when he twice ran out Bill Brown in a 1947-48 Test match against Australia.

The International Cricket Council made changes to its rulebook in October of last year to make it clear that runouts at the bowler’s end were no longer considered “unfair play.”
