Batsman's fault if mankaded - MCC
Stay in the crease, the MCC has once again reiterated to the batsmen, and avoid being mankaded.
That missive was sent by the MCC's World Cricket Committee at the conclusion of its two-day meeting at Lord's when the panel said that it was "unequivocal in its belief" that the existing Law did not need any changes.
Mankading has long been a controversial topic and caused a lengthy debate in May when Sri Lanka's off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake ran out Jos Buttler at Edg-baston for backing up too far after being warned initially.
The World Cricket Committee, which is headed by former England captain Mike Brearley and includes eminent ex-cricketers in Steve Waugh, Rahul Dravid, Andrew Strauss and Shaun Pollock, said that the Law concerning the running out the non-striker was clear and the dismissal was not against the Spirit of Cricket.
