England banning Mankad: To avoid altercations on the field, talks are apparently under way to outlaw the contentious Mankad dismissal in English club cricket. Since the Marylebone Cricket Club altered the game’s laws last year, professional teams have approved the practice of running out the non-striker during a bowler’s delivery. The method has gained traction as professional teams begin to employ it as a legal strategy to dismiss batters from the game. Follow cricket NEWS & LIVE updates with InsideSport.IN

According to reports, Australian Test captain Pat Cummins will only allow his team to use the tactic if the batter at the non-strikers end is warned in advance. English officials have expressed worry that the strategy would compound problems at the local level where on-field discipline has been problematic.

“What is not being talked about is the effect that this is likely to have on village greens on Sunday afternoons up and down the country if this starts to become the norm,” former England batter Mark Butcher told the Wisden Cricket Weekly podcast last week.

“And you can argue until you’re blue in the face that it’s in the Laws and you’re within your rights to do so … but it’s the idea that you’re absolutely within your rights to sleep with your best mate’s ex-wife minutes after they’ve split up, but don’t complain if you get punched in the face for it.

“I can just see absolute carnage happening up and down this land and many others if people start doing it as a matter of course in club games. Because there’s very little regulation in terms of people’s behaviour there and the game as it is played and has been played for years and years with guys umpiring their own players and that type of thing.

“The game has always been played on the basis that there will be a bit of good sportsmanship. Otherwise, we will not be sharing jugs in the bar, type thing. And if this starts happening up and down the land there will be blood – I’m telling you that now.”

According to The Telegraph, several leagues are debating whether to outright prohibit the dismissal, which would then allow batters to continue without the worry of being dismissed.

“I’m not really sure how we expect umpires to be able to monitor if the bowler has gone past a release point. The further down the structure we go, the more wild west it becomes and the concern is that something like a Mankad can split opinion,” Simon Prodger, managing director of the National Cricket Conference said.

“Umpires might wish to interpret things according to the spirit of the game but feel pressurised into making a decision that might cause aggravation because laws say Mankad is a legal form of dismissal.”

Deepti Sharma’s run-out of England’s Charlie Dean at the non-end striker’s during the third ODI at Lord’s last year marked the increased use of the “Mankad,” which bears the name of Indian cricketer Vinoo Mankad. The attempt was made by Melbourne Stars skipper Adam Zampa earlier this month during a Big Bash League game against the Melbourne Renegades, a cross-town rival.
