The goal of cricket is to score more runs than your opponent, which batsmen do by hitting the ball after it has been bowled at them. If a batter hits the ball with his bat and manages to hit it over the boundary before it bounces on the ground, six runs are added to the batsman score account and the team score account. By the pressure of scoring more runs, a batter can be out, or if the bowler bowls well, then it’s a high chance of getting out of batters.
There are many ways where a batter can be out in cricket. Some come in sportsman spirit, but some are controversial, like mankading. Some people who closely follow international cricket might not know what is mankading in cricket? So if you are also don’t know, then no worry here we are talking about the way batters can be out or what is mankading and why it is controversial and comes in non-sportsman spirit subject.
What Is Marketing? And incidents Of Mankading
Marketing is one of the ways of getting out the batsman who stands at nonstrike. ICC made a rule if a non-striker is out of the crease and bowler to complete their bowling action, then he can hit the nonstrike end wicket by the ball; if non-striker found out of the crease, then he declared out by the field umpire if bowling side appeal for running out. But some cricket experts said that mankading is not a way of getting out any batsman. Because it did not show the game of spirit, some experts also said if non-striker out of the crease, the bowler should warn them by saying if you are going out of crease again, then I should out you by hitting the stump.
There are many controversial cases of mankading, such as in an IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings Eleven Punjab where Ravichandran Ashwin mankaded without warning to Jos Buttler, and that incident turned into a controversy. Some cricket experts favor or support Ashwin, while others do not support Ashwin, and they call it is not the spirit of the game. This is not the first time Ashwin mankaded, but in a tri-series of the international match between IND and Sri Lanka, he mankaded Lahiru Thirimanne (former Sri Lankan batsman). Still, the captain of India’s side, Virender Sehwag, withdrew his appeal, and when he bats on.
There are some other mankading incidents in ODI cricket, like Brian luckhurst, who also got out by mankading rule by the bowler Greg Chappell. Grant Chappell is also getting out by mankading by Dipak Patel. Some cricket experts are against mankading in cricket games; that’s why it is controversial. However, according to the ICC rule mankading, it is legal to out when a non-striker is out of the crease.
Other Ways Of Where Batsman Can Be Out
When a batter is not in-form, he is easily out by the bowlers, or if a batsman played an unnecessary shot, it is a high chance of getting out. A batter can be out in many ways, including stumps, caught behind, caught out, run out, hit wicket, wicket out, obstruction, timed out, retired out, LBW, hit the ball twice. First, let’s talk about being caught when a batter hits the ball, and the ball is in the air, and a fielder caught the ball before the ball touched the ground, then the batsman has to go dressing room.
If you do not know when a batsman stumped out, then let me explain when a batter tries to hit the bowl, and he is out of the crease, and he is not hit the ball and ball goes into wicketkeeper hand, and he hit the stump with the ball in his hand then batsman has to leave the crease and go to the dressing room. Run out is almost similar to stumped out, but the wicket is not added to the bowler’s career account; it happens when a batter hits the bowl and tries to take runs by running between the wicket a fielder hits the stumps before the batsman crosses the batting crease.
Obstruction is also why a batter can be out; it happens when a batter tries to obstruct the ball while running between wickets to avoid running out. Then the bowling side can appeal for an out; if the third umpire finds any clue where a player obstructs the ball, he declares out by the third umpire.
