Rahul Mankad Writes Email To BCCI, Objecting ‘Mankading’ Usage

Rahul Mankad doesn’t want BCCI to use the term ‘Mankading’ as he finds it disrespectful. Run-outs that are affected by bowlers when the non-striker backs up too far are popularly and unofficially known as ‘Mankading’.

The term came into effect when legendary Indian all-rounder Vinoo Mankad ran out Australia’s Bill Brown for backing up too far during India’s tour to Australia in 1948. Since then, this form of dismissal is commonly termed as Mankad-ing. However, the late all-rounder’s only surviving son, Rahul Mankad, isn’t amused by the fact.

Rahul Mankad Writes To BCCI To Resolve The Mankading Post As He Finds It Unearranted And Disrespectful

Rahul Mankad doesn’t want the Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) to use the term ‘Mankading’ as he finds it disrespectful. The official Twitter page of BCCI referred to a run-out as ‘Mankading’ during the women’s Under-19 semi-final match between Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh. Disappointed by the same, Rahul Mankad wrote an email to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, asking him to avoid using the term.

“I am writing this email with a request to please resolve the unwarranted and disrespectful situation that has appeared in a post on the BCCI website,” Mankad wrote in an email on October 18.

Secretary Jay Shah and chief executive officer Hemang Amin were also marked in the email.

Vinoo Mankad was best known for record opening partnership of 413 runs with Pankaj Roy in 1956, which stood for 52 years. He scored 2109 runs in 44 tests averaging 31.47, and scored 5 tons, the highest being 231. He also took 162 wickets, averaging 32.32, with the best being 8/52.

Rahul Mankad Yet To Receive Any Response From BCCI

Meanwhile, Rahul Mankad also confirmed that he hadn’t received any response from the Indian cricket board. Moreover, that post hasn’t been deleted yet.

“It is an overenthusiastic and ill-informed post and perhaps a misplaced attempt at humour, but the fact that it has not been taken off is a cause for concern, in my view. I urge you to take immediate action and remove the offensive post forthwith,” he had written further.

Rahul Mankad also pointed out the fact has ICC has stopped using the ‘unfortunate’ term and is referring to the controversial form of dismissal as a run-out.

“Vinoo Mankad was a great Indian cricketer, and his stature as a player and person is unquestionable, you will agree. I strongly believe that BCCI needs to come out and endorse the wrong associated with the eponymous dismissal and term it as it is rightly and under the Laws of Cricket labeled as “RUN OUT,” wrote Mankad.

“As you are aware, the ICC has dropped the unfortunate term referring to my father and has started calling it a Run Out. It is only right that BCCI of all the peak bodies ought to take lead and put this issue to bed, once and for all,” he added.

Vinoo Mankad was an opening batsman and was also a slow left-arm orthodox bowler and hit his career-best 231 against New Zealand in 1956 besides establishing a world record partnership of 413 runs with Pankaj Roy.

Ravichandran Ashwin made headlines in IPL 2019 when he ‘Mankaded’ by running Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler out at the non-striker’s end after the Rajasthan Royals batsman was found outside his crease even before then Kings XI Punjab’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin delivered the ball. Jos Buttler was also out similarly against Sri Lanka in 2014 when Sachithra Senanayake did the same.

Tabraiz Shamsi Backs Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin Saying Bowlers Should Mankad Without Fear

Tabraiz Shamsi, South African cricketer has backed spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, saying that bowlers should Mankad without any fear.

Ravichandran Ashwin received severe criticism for Mankading Rajasthan Royals’ batsman, Jos Buttler, during an IPL game between Punjab Kings (then known as Kings XI Punjab) and Rajasthan Royals in 2019.

Tabraiz Shamsi Supports Ravichandran Ashwin On Mankading And Thinks All Bowlers Should Do It Without Any Fear

However, the senior cricketer stood his ground and backed his decision. He also received praise from several sections. Tabraiz Shamsi has now come out in support of Ravichandran Ashwin, saying that it is the batters who are cheating. Tabraiz Shamsi agrees with the Tamil Nadu-born off-spinner, saying the bowlers must do it as it is within the rules of the game.

The left-arm wrist-spinner also thinks that why the bowlers should receive criticism for abusing the spirit of cricket when it’s the batsmen stealing a few extra yards.

“@ashwinravi99 I think all bowlers should do it without any fear.. it’s within the rules of the game,” tweeted Tabraiz Shamsi.

“Why must the bowlers get abused about the “spirit of cricket” when it’s actually the batsmen that are stealing yards and THAT is against the spirit of cricket. That’s the real truth,” added Tabraiz Shamsi.

Ravichandran Ashwin while playing for Kings XI Punjab had dismissed non-striker Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals when he had left the batting crease before the ball was bowled. The incident which happened in 2019 was not repeated in 2020 when Ravichandran Ashwin while playing for Delhi Capitals warned Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Aaron Finch when he left the crease at the non-striker’s end.

Tabraiz Shamsi’s comments came after former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar and Ravichandran Ashwin had a constructive debate on Twitter on how to even out the contest between batsman and bowlers in the modern game.

Ravichandran Ashwin Suggested A New Rule-Free Ball For Bowlers Every Time Batsman Leaves Non-Strikers End Early

In his column for the Hindustan Times, Sanjay Manjrekar stated that the free-hit rule was introduced by a ‘sadist’ who hated bowlers.

“Free hit is a thing I want gone, again terribly unfair on the bowlers. Today with the TV umpire monitoring no balls, a bowler has to be a centimetre over, and immediately, a string of punishments are meted out,” wrote Sanjay Manjrekar.

“The bowler has to bowl an extra ball, the batter cannot be out to that no ball already bowled and there is also a penalty of one run. To add to that, there is a free hit offered to the batter in which he cannot be out. The penalty is just not commensurate to the ‘wrongful’ act. It’s as if the rule was introduced by a sadist who hated bowlers,” added Manjrekar.

In his response, Ravichandran Ashwin suggested a new rule – ‘free ball’. According to the bowler, ten runs should be docked from the bowlers’ figures and also from the overall total every time a non-striker leaves the crease early.

“Come on @sanjaymanjrekar, free hit is a great marketing tool and has captured the imagination of all the fans. Let’s add a free ball for the bowlers every time a batter leaves the non-strikers’ end early, a wicket of that ball will reduce 10 runs of the bowlers’ analysis and total,” tweeted Ravichandran Ashwin.

“Remember: “you are supposed to leave the crease only after the ball leaves the hand,” added Ravichandran Ashwin.

Sanjay Manjrekar, a cricketer-turned-commentator, also called for the removal of the leg-bye rule.

“We see a bowler has bowled a great delivery and the batter is deceived, he can’t put the bat to ball. But the ball brushes to the fine leg boundary. The umpire signals a four in favour of the batting team! The batter is rewarded, the bowler penalized. How does that make sense from any angle?” asserted Sanjay Manjrekar.

Mankading has happened only 4 times in Tests,5 times in ODIs, 1 time in T20Is, and only once in IPL. The last one happened during 2019 IPL in March. The former Kings XI Punjab spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s Mankad act divided the sporting fraternity into two halves- some criticized him for his action terming it as illegal while quite a few backed the off-spinner, saying Mankading is within the rules and spirit of the game.

Mankading: Ravichandran Ashwin Gives 1st And Final Warning In IPL 2020

Ravichandran Ashwin while playing for Kings XI Punjab had dismissed non-striker Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals when he had left the batting crease before the ball was bowled. The incident which happened in 2019 was not repeated in 2020 when Ravichandran Ashwin while playing for Delhi Capitals warned Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Aaron Finch when he left the crease at non-striker’s end.

Ravichandran Ashwin was traded to Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 auctions and got injured after their first match against Kings XI Punjab. He returned against KKR and played against RCB as well where the incident happened.

Ravichandran Ashwin Tweets That Non-Striker Batsmen Should Repent For Not Backing Up Properly

The prominent off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin talked about the act of Mankading in the latest episode of his YouTube programme Hello Dubaiahh where he upheld his action. He maintained that backing up too far outside batting crease is wrong and even tweeted that it was his first and final warning in 2020.

“You cannot stop thefts till thieves repent. I cannot be police forever. I tagged (Ricky) Ponting in the tweet. He said he would have asked me to run him (Aaron Finch) out,” said Ashwin.

“When we played (DC vs RCB), one side of the ground was big. I knew someone would back up as scoring boundaries was not very easy. They had players who could convert (singles into) twos.

“So I knew it would happen and went into my jump while delivering the ball and a gold helmet (Finch) floated past. I stopped and thought, he was still outside the crease, just staring,” said Ashwin.

Delhi Capitals beat RCB by 59 runs after posting 196/4 as RCB could only manage 137/9. Delhi Capitals are second in the points table after Mumbai Indians both of whom are level with 8 points. Delhi though have played one match less than Mumbai Indians — and would look to win against Rajasthan Royals in the 23rd match at Sharjah on 9th October.

Ravichandran Ashwin Adds DC Coach Ricky Ponting Wants ICC To Impose Penalty

Ravichandran Ashwin added that Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting is in talks and pushing hard with the ICC committee about imposing a penalty for the act. Ravichandran Ashwin also suggested that 10 runs should be docked from the team as there should be stringent punishment for backing up outside the crease before the ball is bowled.

“Following the incident, Ashwin let out a warning on Twitter for everyone to see. “Let’s make it clear ! First and final warning for 2020. I am making it official and don’t blame me later on. Aaron Finch and I are good buddies (by the way),” the tweet read.

https://twitter.com/ashwinravi99/status/1313199583959289856?s=20

Ravichandran Ashwin went on to comment that the post was more for the protectors who upheld the spirit of cricket and not only meant only for the batsmen.

IPL 2020: Kane Williamson Opens Up On Mankading

Kane Williamson of Sunrisers Hyderabad has joined the hot topic of discussion in cricket – Mankading which was first witnessed in IPL when Ravichandran Ashwin who then played for Kings XI Punjab ran Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals out in the league match of IPL 2019.

Mankading has been under discussion among fans, cricketers and experts. Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting announced he will not allow Ravichandran Ashwin to do it again after he was traded into Delhi Capitals franchise.

Kane Williamson And Ricky Ponting Does Not Encourage Mankading

Kane Williamson, the New Zealand skipper and Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batting mainstay does not encourage ‘Mankading’ as it does not fit his team SRH as he feels one should upheld rules and spirit of cricket.

“No, I certainly do not encourage it. That is not something that we look to do at all as a team,” Williamson told ‘The Week’.

“We have behaviours that are important to us as a group, and something like that does not fit with us, so that is my stance. However, if someone is looking to cheat, I think it would be worth having a quiet word with him and make sure the rules and spirit of the game are upheld. As ambassadors of the game, I think it is really important to stay within those lines.” The New Zealand skipper added.

Sunrisers Hyderabad came in IPL 2020 with a suspect middle order to address and included bowling all-rounder Mitchell Marsh for Kane Williamson. An injury to Kane Williamson during training session prompted a replacement.

Replacement Mitchell Marsh injured his ankle into his first over of bowling which looks bad enough to cast a shadow over the rest of his IPL. There is no word on when Kane Williamson will be available for selection as SRH lost to RCB in their opening game by 10 runs.

Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting said before the start of IPL 2020 that he is against Mankading after spinner Ravichandran Ashwin joined the Delhi Capitals this season. The announcement made headlines and the off-spinner confirmed that he had conversations with the Australian coach regarding the matter.

“We have spoken about it and I have told him my expectation that I wouldn’t want him to Mankad,” Ricky Ponting recently told InsideSport when asked about his direction to Ashwin regarding Makading.

Mankading refers to a situation when a bowler runs out the batsman at the non-striker’s end, who leaves the crease even before the ball is delivered. The term ‘Mankading’ came into reckoning after former Indian all-rounder Vinoo Mankad ran out Australia’s Bill Brown at the non-striker’s end during an ongoing Test match at Sydney in 1947.

Though Vinoo Mankad warned Bill Brown before running him out in this fashion, he was severely criticized by the Australian media and critics alike. Legendary Sir Donald Bradman however, in his autobiography, supported Vinoo Mankad and said there should not have been any controversy since the rules of cricket allow a dismissal of this kind.

Muttiah Muralitharan Shared His Opinion Too On Mankading

Muttiah Muralitharan, the Sri Lankan spin legend who is at present SRH’s bowling consultant shared his opinion on the controversial subject matter after SRH batsman Kane Williamson.

“If the bowler should not have the unfair advantage of running out the batsman, the latter too should not have the unfair advantage of proceeding too ahead in the pitch in order to take a run. I believe warnings should be given.

“Rather than giving the batsman out, five penalty runs should be added to the erring team if an umpire feels that the non-striker or the bowler is taking unfair advantage,” Muralitharan told Hindustan Times.

Jos Buttler’s dismissal was the big turning point in the match and it cost the Rajasthan Royals the match. At that stage, Rajasthan Royals needed 77 runs to win off 43 balls, with nine wickets in hand.

Jos Buttler was looking very promising and poised for a big score while batting on 69 off 43 balls. Soon after the opener’s dismissal, the team’s run-chase suffered and they lost as many as seven wickets for only 22 runs, eventually losing the match by 14 runs.

Don’t Look For Any Empathy: Javagal Srinath Supports Mankading

Former Indian cricketer Javagal Srinath echoed in support of bowlers for practicing Mankading to get the batsman out. The veteran opines that if the batsman at nonstriker’s end moves inches out of the crease while the bowler has still not released the ball, he is not invoking the spirit of the game.

Srinath’s remark came after Delhi Capital’s coach Ricky Ponting opined that Mankading is against the spirit of the games. The former Aussie captain had also said that DC players, including Ravichandran Ashwin, would not be allowed to pull out such practice. The debate on Mankad had started after Ashwin had picked the wicket of Jos Buttler, at the nonstriker’s end, in the same way.

In the recent interaction with Ravichandran Ashwin on his Youtube show ‘DRS With Ash’, Srinath opined that he does not feel that the bowler is wrong if he runs out a batsman in this fashion.

The bowler is focusing on the batsman. For the batsman (at the non-striker’s end) to stick to his crease till the ball is released is no big deal, because he’s not batting, nor is he thinking of anything else.” Srinath told Ashwin 

“So the batsman shouldn’t leave the crease and the bowler should focus on just bowling and the batsman he’s going to bowl to. If the batsman is taking undue advantage, and if he’s involved in a run out, I am fine. I am perfectly okay with that,” Srinath said.

India’s former pace mainstay Javagal Srinath has opined that the batsman should stay inside the crease until the bowler has not delivered the ball.

Don’t look for any empathy. Don’t invoke the spirit of the game. The spirit of the game is with the runner. He cannot move out of the crease. If he is doing it, he’s not invoking the spirit of the game itself. I would believe that the batsman should stick to the crease.”

The result is unfair: Javagal Srinath

Srinath said that the runner’s moving out of the crease can impact the outcome of a close game in an unfair manner. He added that the batsman should not be given an unfair advantage to move out four to five feet from the crease.

“Even if the batsman has inadvertently left the crease, and it happens to be the last ball of the match where there’s a run-out (chance) with the batsman in by an inch, but he has already taken three-foot forward before the ball has been delivered, the result is unfair.

“One of the teams will probably pay for it. I would like to see a balance here.”

“It cannot be that he’s gaining four to five feet advantage every ball. In T20, every ball matters. How many games go to the last ball?” he asked.

Meanwhile, the IPL is set to begin from 19th September and it would be interesting to see whether Ashwin would use Mankad to get the player out.

Sanjay Manjrekar Echoes Dinesh Karthik’s Opinion On ‘Mankading’

‘Mankading’ Is Legitimate as Sanjay Manjrekar concurred with KKR captain Dinesh Karthik on views regarding this mode of dismissal. Sanjay Manjrekar, a cricketer turned commentator, has concurred with KKR captain Dinesh Karthik on ‘Mankading’ and said that batsmen who leave the crease before the ball is bowled should be negatively looked upon.

The topic came up for discussion before the start of Indian Premier League which commences from September 19 in the Emirates. The first instance of ‘Mankading’ in IPL came in the last edition in 2019 when Kings XI Punjab’s Ravichandran Ashwin ‘Mankaded’ Rajasthan Royals Jos Buttler.

The issue soon became one of the most debated topics as cricketers and commentators were divided upon whether ‘Mankading’ is within ‘spirit of cricket’. Delhi Capitals traded in Ravichandran Ashwin this year and their head coach Ricky Ponting said he will not allow him to affect the mode of discussion in future for Delhi Capitals.

Ravichandran Ashwin, however, defended his act despite facing severe criticism and even went on saying that he will do it again if the opportunity comes his way.

‘Mankading’ Should Not Be Called So & Is Within The Rules: Dinesh Karthik

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Dinesh Karthik said that it is within the rules and added that Vinoo Mankad after whom the dismissal was named should be remembered for his contribution to Indian cricket, not for this act. Bill Brown, who was dismissed for the first instance of this dismissal by Vinoo Mankad should be remembered instead according to the KKR captain.

“There are two issues I have with this ‘Mankad’ run out. First is the implementation of it. Second is the name ‘Mankad’ run out,” he said.

“First let’s come down to the implementation. All the way from Don Bradman to Sunil Gavaskar, everyone has said it’s completely within the rules. The ICC and MCC have also taken a stand that it is okay. So I don’t see the reason why bowlers or any team that does it is looked at in a negative way.”

Don Bradman who was a legendary respected cricketer and is the only batsman averaging more than 90 in the longest format was the captain in that Test and defended Vinoo Mankad in his autobiography ‘Farewell to Cricket’.

Bill Brown, who was dismissed for the first instance of this dismissal by Vinoo Mankad should be remembered instead according to the KKR captain. He also added that since a warning was issued to Bill Brown so the spirit of cricket was upheld.

“Two, the name of it. The person who did it first time was Vinoo Mankad. Interestingly, he was alert enough to do that dismissal. But more importantly, nobody remembers the batsman who got run out. It was Bill Brown.”

“If Mankad was the first person who did that run out, Bill Brown was the first person who got run out for being silly and walking out of the crease. Why is it that people remember Mankad and not Brown? Why can’t it be called anything to do with Bill Brown? He (Mankad) followed the rules and did it.”

“He (Brown) was even given a warning. Giving a warning to the batter is accepted as spirit of cricket. But I don’t see a bowler tactically giving a warning to get a batsman bowled or caught, why should a warning be given for a run out?”

He said that since ICC and MCC call it a run-out, the term ‘Mankading’ should not be used in a negative sense.

“The ICC and MCC call it a run out. So the name Mankad shouldn’t be used in a negative connotation,” the KKR captain opined.

Mankading happened for the first time during 1947-48 tour to India when Vinoo Mankad ran opposition batsman Bill Brown out despite warning him at non-striker’s end after he backed up too far.

‘Mankading’ Opinion By Dinesh Karthik 100% Agreed By Sanjay Manjrekar

Dinesh Karthik then took to Twitter and asked the likes of eminent cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle, former India batsman and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar and Aakash Chopra besides KKR coach Brendon McCullum and cricketers Ravichandran Ashwin, S Badrinath, Rohan Gavaskar for their views on the issue.

This definitely is not the last time when the debatable dismissal is discussed. It will be interesting to see if Ravichandran Ashwin or any other bowler employs the same method during this season or in forthcoming seasons of the IPL.

Ravichandran Ashwin Responds To Ricky Ponting’s Comment To Not ‘Mankad’ During IPL 2020

Ravichandran Ashwin, who would be playing his first IPL season for Delhi Capitals (DC) in the UAE, has revealed that he had an interesting chat with DC Coach Ricky Ponting on not practicing Mankad during the IPL 2020 season.

In IPL 2019, Ravichandran Ashwin, playing for Kings XI Punjab, was surrounded in controversy for mankading Rajasthan Royals player Jos Buttler. Thereafter, the debate started on whether mankading is a right practice in cricket. Although it is a legal way to get the batsman out as per rules, however, it is deemed to be against the spirit of cricket.

Now, as Ashwin is set to play for DC after being traded from KXIP ahead of the IPL 2020 auction, Ricky Ponting had said that their players, including Ashwin, wouldn’t be allowed to pull off Mankad. The DC coach also said that this practice is against the spirit of the game and he would have chat with the veteran spinner about that. However, Ponting’s statement had become a big show on social media.

Reacting to Ponting’s statement, Ashwin has opened up that he had a conversation with Ponting on Phone but added that he would openly talk to him when the former Aussie player reaches the UAE.

“Ricky Ponting hasn’t yet reached (Dubai). After he comes, we will sit for a chat with him. He said he wants to have a conversation. We have already spoken over the phone. It was a very interesting chat,” Ashwin was quoted as saying in his first episode of his new ‘Hello Dubaiahh?’ YouTube show.

Sometimes Australians’ messages in English get lost in translation: Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin also noted that the messages given in English by foreign players are sometimes wrongly translated therefore it becomes a big show.

“What happens sometimes is Australians’ messages in English get lost in translation and reach us with a different meaning. Even some of their jokes become news. That’s what it is and next week I will reveal a bit more about my conversation with Ricky,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mankading is running out the non-striking batsman whilst he is backing up. There have not been many instances when the bowlers have practiced this way to get the batsman out.

Dinesh Karthik Suggests Mankading Should Not Be Used Negatively

Dinesh Karthik, Kolkata Knight Rider’s skipper, warns not to use the word ‘Mankad’ with negative implication as Vinoo Mankad should also be remembered for his achievements as a cricketer. He feels that Bill Brown who was the first man to be dismissed at non-striker’s end in 1947 before Vinoo Mankad delivered the ball should be remembered instead. He also feels that the dismissal is within the spirit of cricket as it is legitimate.

The incident became a hot topic after Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting said that he will not allow Ravichandran Ashwin to repeat ‘Mankading’ after he was traded in by the team from Kings XI Punjab.

Dinesh Karthik Says Vinoo Mankad Should Be Remembered For His Contribution

While Dinesh Karthik talked to Cricketnext as part of the Laws of Cricket Challenge, he questioned why Australian Bill Brown who was run out by Vinoo Mankad in the first example of the dismissal in 1947 was not remembered despite walking out of the crease.

“There are two issues I have with this ‘Mankad’ run out. First is the implementation of it. Second is the name ‘Mankad’ run out,” he said.

“First let’s come down to the implementation. All the way from Don Bradman to Sunil Gavaskar, everyone has said it’s completely within the rules. The ICC and MCC have also taken a stand that it is okay. So I don’t see the reason why bowlers or any team that does it is looked at in a negative way.”

Karthik said that since both ICC and MCC call the dismissal run out it should not be called ‘Mankad’ besides stressing upon the fact that Bill Brown was warned beforehand and nobody remembers him.

“Two, the name of it. The person who did it first time was Vinoo Mankad. Interestingly, he was alert enough to do that dismissal. But more importantly, nobody remembers the batsman who got run out. It was Bill Brown.

“If Mankad was the first person who did that run out, Bill Brown was the first person who got run out for being silly and walking out of the crease. Why is it that people remember Mankad and not Brown? Why can’t it be called anything to do with Bill Brown? He (Mankad) followed the rules and did it.”

Vinoo Mankad

“He (Brown) was even given a warning. Giving a warning to the batter is accepted as spirit of cricket. But I don’t see a bowler tactically giving a warning to get a batsman bowled or caught, why should a warning be given for a run out?

“The ICC and MCC call it a run out. So the name Mankad shouldn’t be used in a negative connotation.”

The Kolkata Knight Riders skipper stressed on the fact that it is wrong to associate Vinoo Mankad only for this act. Vinoo Mankad was best known for record opening partnership of 413 runs with Pankaj Roy in 1956 which stood for 52 years. He scored 2109 runs in 44 tests averaging 31.47 and scored 5 tons the highest being 231. He also took 162 wickets averaging 32.32 with the best being 8/52.

“More importantly, for people who know the history of the game Vinoo Mankad was the first person to get 1000 runs and 100 wickets. He had the highest partnership with Pankaj Roy (413) before it was broken as an opening pair. He was an opening batsman and had the highest Test score (231) until Gavaskar ended up breaking it (in 1983). There are so many great things to remember Vinoo Mankad as a cricketer. Why is he remembered only for this? He’s a legend in Indian cricket and should be remembered for all the right reasons.”

Vinoo Mankad was an opening batsman and was also a slow left-arm orthodox bowler and hit his career-best 231 against New Zealand in 1956 besides establishing world record partnership of 413 runs with Pankaj Roy.

Dinesh Karthik Recalls Australian Legend Sir Don Bradman Also Defended Vinoo Mankad In His Act

Interestingly, the legendary Don Bradman who is the only batsman to average more than 90 in Tests and was Australia’s captain in that Test in Sydney, had in fact defended Vinoo Mankad despite critics going against him. In fact, Don Bradman averages 99.94 in 52 Tests and his autobiography ‘Farewell to Cricket’ labelled ‘Mankading’ a legitimate part of cricket.

“Does anybody remember what a great cricketer Vinoo Mankad was? What all he achieved on the field. The only thing they remember him for is this, which I feel is wrong. Back then itself, Don Bradman himself came out and said what Mankad did and within the laws of the game.

“The laws of cricket make it quite clear that the non-striker must keep within his ground until the ball has been delivered. If not, why is the provision there which enables the bowler to run him out?” Bradman wrote in his book Farewell to Cricket.

“Mankad was an ideal type, and he was so scrupulously fair that he first of all warned Brown before taking any action. There was absolutely no feeling in the matter as far as we were concerned, for we considered it quite a legitimate part of the game.”

Dinesh Karthik said batsmen must stay within the crease if this dismissal was effected often, but explained that bowlers fear to do it due to criticism which surrounds it.

“If this is done just like a run out consistently, then obviously the batsmen will be even more careful and stop doing it. But because it is not encouraged and looked at in a negative way, and people are doubted morally, the bowlers, the captains and the teams are scared of doing it more for the repercussions that anything else,” he said.

“But if it is legal means to get a player out and ICC is completely in sync with it and MCC have said for the longest time that it is right to do it, then why is it that it’s not accepted as a mode of dismissal? In what way is it different to a run out?

“A lot of time a batsman hits the ball, it hits the bowler’s hand by mistake and hits the stump. Then does the captain say no, it’s okay it happened by mistake? Where does that stand?”

Dinesh Karthik also suggested an alternative must be executed to stop batsmen from crossing the crease in case the bowlers face repercussions from coaches, senior cricketers and social media.

“Now there is technology for checking no balls. So using the camera, check if the non-striker leaves the crease early. Every time a batsman backs up early, all runs should be disallowed. Only a wicket should stand.”

Dinesh Karthik who was appointed skipper of KKR in IPL in 2018 has been in and out of the Indian team featuring in only 26 Tests, 94 ODIs and 32 T20Is since his debut in 2004.

Aakash Chopra Wants To Be In Delhi’s Dugout To The Watch Debate

Aakash Chopra, a former Indian opener and now serving as a commentator, has revealed his desire to be in the Delhi Capitals’ (DC) dressing room, to witness Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin — and head coach Ricky Ponting having a debate over Mankading which is the term named after Vinoo Mankad for his controversial dismissal of non-striker before completing bowling action.

Ravichandran Ashwin had dismissed Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals, who were playing against his erstwhile team Kings XI Punjab in the controversial mode. Ashwin was traded in Delhi Capitals team in 2020. Their head coach Ricky Ponting insisted that he will not allow him to do it again this time for Delhi Capitals as ‘Mankading’ is against the spirit of cricket.

Aakash Chopra Feels Mankading Should Go To Bowler’s Account

Mankading has happened only 4 times in Tests,5 times in ODIs, 1 time in T20Is and only once in IPL. The last one happened during 2019 IPL in March.

“The story started last year when Rajasthan Royals was playing Kings XI Punjab where Ravichandran Ashwin stopped in his action, took a long pause during which Buttler left the crease and Ashwin removed the bails and he got given out in the end.”

Aakash Chopra also gave his opinion on the much-debated Mankading issue while speaking on his YouTube channel, in the context of DC Head Coach Ricky Ponting’s recent statement that he would not allow the form of dismissal.

“Ricky Ponting, the Australian captain is saying that it is against the ethics, that you should not Mankad anyone and his team will not be doing that and he would be talking with Ravichandran Ashwin regarding that.”

Aakash Chopra observed that the ICC had initially agreed with the bowler but later changed their verdict by stating that Ravichandran Ashwin had waited for a long time before removing the bails of the wicket which was not noticed and felt by the third umpire at that time.

“Initially ICC mentioned that that it was absolutely correct but later changed their verdict that he had waited for too long. That decision of run out was referred to the third umpire and he did not feel that Ashwin was dodging by waiting too long.”

Fellow commentator Harsha Bhogle, however, felt that the third umpire had ruled him out so there was no question of not following spirit or rules of cricket as the umpire was on the ICC elite panel and also a custodian of the laws of cricket. Harsha Bhogle conveyed his final decision through a Twitter handle.

Aakash Chopra opinioned that the most important part of this issue is whether the mode of dismissal is correct.

“But the big debate is if this is correct or not. So what Ricky Ponting is saying, is that correct or Ashwin’s stand is correct.”

The 42-year-old commentator also mentioned that Delhi Capitals head coach Australian Ricky Ponting’s view is that the non-striker is not trying to take undue advantage of the situation and should be given a warning before the dismissal is effected. He also adds that the contrary belief is that a warning should not be issued when the dismissal is within the laws of cricket.

“Ricky Ponting is coming from the perspective that you are taking a little start and not trying to steal a single and it is the duty of the bowler to warn the batsman.”
“But the other side is that there are some laws of cricket. So if the law has been made that when you go out, you can be dismissed from behind, then why a warning in such a case.”
Aakash Chopra went with the second opinion while stating that the dismissal cannot be against the spirit of the game when it is within the laws of cricket.
“I am also on that side because I feel if something is within the law, how can it be against the spirit of the game. I don’t like the ethical debate on Mankading one bit.”

Aakash Chopra said that he is in accordance with the proposal of assigning Mankading to the bowler’s account, which would cause all the bowlers to talk in favour of the dismissal.

The former KKR player feels that this change would help remove the disgrace associated with this mode of dismissal.

Aakash Chopra played 10 tests for India and featured in Kolkata Knight Riders squad only in 2008.

Aakash Chopra Agrees With Sunil Gavaskar To Rename Mankading As Browned

Aakash Chopra also agreed with Sunil Gavaskar’s views that the dismissal should be called Browned after the name of the batsman who was dismissed, rather than being named after Vinoo Mankad. This method of dismissal involved the Indian bowler Vinoo Mankad and it occurred during India’s tour of Australia. On 13 December 1947 in the second Test at Sydney, he ran out Bill Brown when, while delivering the ball, he held on to it and removed the bails with Brown well short of his crease.
This was the second time he had similarly dismissed Brown on the tour, having already done it in an earlier match against an Australian XI. But, on that occasion, though he had warned him once before running him out. Since this incident in 1947, a non-striker dismissed in this fashion is said to have been “Mankaded”.
“Mankading also was named after Vinoo Mankad, although the batsman’s name was Brown. He was taking a start and Mankad dismissed him and it has been given the name Mankading since then. I feel it should be called Browned, as Sunil Gavaskar also says.”

Aakash Chopra expressed his desire to be a fly on the wall and be present on the Delhi Capitals dugout when Ravichandran Ashwin and Ricky Ponting are debating over the matter.

“But now I want to be a fly on the wall when Ricky Ponting and R Ashwin confront each other on Mankading. I know Ashwin, he is a very strong character who sticks to his beliefs, so he is going to have an objection and Ponting is not going to allow it.”

Aakash Chopra mentioned that the likelihood of a heated debate in the Delhi Capitals camp over this subject persists.

It will be interesting to see the reaction of Delhi Capitals and the team management’s handling of the Mankading issue, with their head coach and senior bowler having a disagreement on the subject and are at loggerheads.

Ricky Ponting Wants To Talk To Ravichandran Ashwin Ahead Of IPL 2020 As Mankading Is Not Within Spirit Of Cricket

Ricky Ponting, coach of IPL franchise — Delhi Capitals believes Mankading is not within the spirit of the game — and said he will have a conversation with spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who will play for the Delhi-based franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). R Ashwin was the captain of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) when he mankaded Jos Buttler. There on, he was highly criticized for his action.

Ravichandran Ashwin made headlines in IPL 2019 when he Mankaded by running Jos Buttler out at the non-striker’s end after the Rajasthan Royals batsman was found outside his crease even before Ashwin delivered the ball.

The former Kings XI Punjab’s Mankad act divided the sporting fraternity into two halves- some criticised Ashwin for his action terming it as illegal while quite a few backed the off-spinner, saying Mankading is within the rules and spirit of the game.

Jos Buttler was also out similarly against Sri Lanka in 2014 when Sachithra Senanayake did the same. Mankading has happened only four times in Tests, five times in ODIs and only time in T20I and is named after Vinod Mankad.

R Ashwin played for Chennai Super Kings from 2008 to 2015, before short stints with Rising Pune Supergiants in 2016/17 and Kings XI Punjab in 2018/19 before being picked up by Delhi Capitals for 2020 IPL.

Ashwin defended his act of Mankading and said it’s within the rules of the game and he didn’t ‘know from where the understanding of the Spirit of the Game comes from’. Also, when asked by a fan if he would Mankad batsmen in IPL 2020, R Ashwin replied in the affirmative.

The six-foot-tall spinner all-rounder played 70 Tests,111 ODIs and 46 T20Is for India and has picked up 362,150 and 52 wickets respectively at decent averages.

Stressing that he believes R Ashwin will take his suggestion with open heart, Ricky Ponting said none of the Delhi Capitals bowlers will attempt Mankading during IPL 2020, which will be played from September 19 to November 10 in the Emirates. The tournament was slated for March 29 but was deferred to September 19 in UAE.

“I’ll be having a chat with him about [mankad], that’s the first thing I’ll do,” Ricky Ponting said while speaking on The Grade Cricketer Podcast.

“Obviously, he wasn’t in our squad last year, he’s one of our players that we tried to bring in this year. Look, he’s a terrific bowler, and he’s done a great job in the IPL for a long period of time now.

“But I must admit watching that last season, as soon as it happened and he did that, I actually sat our boys down and said ‘Look, I know he’s done it, there’ll be others around the tournament who’ll think about doing this well but that’s not going to be the way that we play our cricket. We won’t be doing that’.”

“So, that’s going to be a conversation and that’s going to be a hard conversation I will have to have with him, but I’m pretty sure he’ll take it on the chin.

“I think, even him, looking back now, probably he’d say it was within the rules and he’s right to do it, but this is not within the spirit of the game, not in the way I want, at least with the Delhi Capitals anywaym,” he maintained.

Delhi Capitals have some big names like Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Amit Mishra of India and Kagiso Rabada, Jason Roy and Shimron Hetmyer as international stars in IPL 2020.

Ricky Ponting Mentions Penalizing Non-striker Better Option

Ricky Ponting also said there are better ways to stop batsmen from gaining an unfair advantage at the non-striker’s end than ‘having the ugly incident of a Mankad’.

“I think there’s ways that you can actually stop batsmen cheating like that,” he said.

“If the bowler was to stop, and the batsman was a foot out of his crease for instance, why don’t you just penalise him some runs or something? Then they won’t do it again.

“You’ve only got to do that once at the start of a tournament, and then all the players see it, and you can guarantee the players won’t be fudging any ground from then on.

“I chatted to some of the match referees about it during last year’s IPL as well. If the umpires make a stance and do something to warn the batsman that they might be cheating, then that’s better than having the ugly incident of a mankad,” he said.

Vinoo Mankad, who was known for his world record opening partnership of 413 runs with Pankaj Roy in 1956 was also infamously associated with Mankading which happened for the first time when he caused a major controversy in 1947/48 on India’s tour of Australia when he ran out Bill Brown in the second test.

Mankad while bowling broke the wicket at the non-striker’s end when Brown was out of crease backing striker.

Such an act although not a violation of the laws of cricket, some considers it unsporting and against the spirit of cricket.

However, Mankad warned Brown before dismissing him and likewise, Courtney Walsh also received praise for warning rather than dismissing Saleem Jaffer who was the non-striker during 1987 World Cup.
