The 33-year-old Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has come up with an important suggestion to change the rules if a non-striker batsman leaves the crease before a bowler releases the ball.

To take the extra crucial advantage, the non-striker batsmen sometimes take some extra steps forward before the bowler releases the ball. In the crucial close calls, these steps matter most while these also help to convert a single into the double.

Ravichandran Ashwin, who believes in “Mankading” against these batsmen, has now come up with an important suggestion to prevent the non-striker batsmen to follow this system regularly.

Ashwin asks for the technology that can detect if a non-striker batsman taking some extra steps forward before the bowler releases the ball. In this case, the off-spinner has suggested disallowing the runs of that ball. He has come with this solution after the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that the technology would be used to call no-balls in the first edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.

Then, Ashwin pointed out the disadvantages for the bowlers in the present practice from the non-striker batsmen. As the ongoing system is helping the partners to convert ones into twos, bowlers are facing the same batsman on the next ball which might cost them a boundary.

Ashwin feels that if the non-striker batsmen don’t take those extra steps before the bowler releases the ball, it may result in a single run and the bowler will deliver the next ball to the other batsman that may reduce the chances of boundaries on the next ball.

Ashwin further added that the same issue happened if a batsman wanting to get off strike for the next ball in Test cricket.

As the present rules are mostly not supporting the bowlers, Ashwin feels that his suggested restrictions may provide some balance in this game.

While a fan disagreed with that suggestion, Ashwin came with another alternative suggestion. In this case, Ashwin wants a free ball for the bowlers immediately the next ball after the non-strike batsman backed up.
