Moeen Ali Wants to Ban on Controversial Run-Out Rule: England veteran all-rounder Moeen Ali has shared an option over the Mankad debate and he said that it should be banned and reiterated the national side’s dislike of running out the non-striker before the ball is bowled.
Indian women cricketer Deepti Sharma ran Charlie Dean out during the third ODI. Deepti has been under much scrutiny over her action which has sparked a debate.
Moeen Ali opined on the whole controversy suggesting that the controversial mode of dismissal must be banned altogether.
However, he acknowledged that the run out of a battery at the non-striker’s end for backing up is in the rule books.
While many former cricketers have lashed out at Deepti Sharma, there have been a few who believe the runout was as per the law and found no basis for any debate.
Ravichandran Ashwin and former cricketer Rita Dey were among the few who came out in support of the player’s action.
“At least with a run-out, there is a bit of work that has to be done, and with all the other dismissals. This is just waiting for the guy and taking the bails off. Even when I played cricket as a kid in the garden, it’s not my thing to do,” he added.
The England batter claimed that such dismissals are an easy way out for the players. As per the rules, it is fair to run out the non-striker in such a case. However, many have argued that it does not uphold the spirit of the game.
