Calling the batsman to run out at non-striker end is called manking
In this way Venu Mankad was the first to run out of Australia's Bublin Brown in 1947
Sports desk During a cricket match, when a batsman standing on a non-striker end goes ahead of the crease before the ball and the bowler gets him out, it is called the Manking out. This name has been named after former Indian cricketer Venu Mankad. Venu's son Rahul Mankad has objected to this saying that it is wrong to call him 'Mankading' in the name of his father in the name of run out.
It was recently discussed in a match of the 12th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), when Kings XI Punjab player R Ashwin got 'Manking' out of Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals.
Rahul Mankad described it as unfortunate
Rahul said, "His father Venu Mankad was not the first and last cricketer to score a run like this. This mode of run out is within the rules of cricket. Run out should be called run out. I think that during the 40s an Australian journalist used the word first. It is unfortunate that such a batsman is named after my father's run out. "
MCC said – this rule is very important
Ashwin was criticized after being dismissed like this. On this Ashwin said that it was a natural reaction, where did the spirit of the game come from? Now the cricket lawmaker, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), has clarified that Ashwin has dismissed Butler only under the rules. MCC said, "There is a need to understand the rules in detail. This rule is essential. Without it, the batsman standing at the non striker end will get the freedom to overtake the crease. There is a rule needed to stop such an action. "
Bradman had defended Venu Mankad
When Venu Mankad had run out to Bruce Brown, he too had to face criticism. However, Don Bradman, who was then captain of Australia, had defended him. He said that I am not able to understand why this is happening. The rules of cricket are clear. Until the ball is thrown, the batsman standing on non-strikes has to stay in the crease.
