Michael Clarke Backs Controversial 'Mankad' Run-Out
Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke said he had no problem with a controversial run out rule that marred the fifth and final one-day international between England and Sri Lanka.
His England counterpart Alastair Cook insisted a "line had been crossed" after Sachithra Senanayake ran out England's Jos Buttler as the non-striker backed up at Edgbaston on Tuesday. But Clarke said the dismissal was in the rules.
Sri Lanka went on to beat England by six wickets and clinch a 3-2 series victory.
