Venkatesh Prasad Responds to Mark Waugh’s Comment ‘Mankading’ | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Former Indian racer Venkatesh Prasad on Monday gave a fitting answer to the former Australian cricketer Mark Waugh about his views on using ‘Mankading‘ as a strategy to get a wicket.
“The worst part is that it looks like the teams are using it as a deliberately planned way to get a racquet,” Waugh said while commenting on a Twitter video of the Pakistani pacing athlete. Zaib-un-Nisa run out of Rwandan batters during the ongoing T20 Women’s U-19 World Cup.

Prasad replied, “Yes, the Bowlers intending to disqualify a player by legal means is the worst. Batsman wants to take advantage of unfair advantage by not backing the game is the best thing.”

Outward runs when the hitter tries to get over the fold before the pitcher drops the ball are called ‘Mankading’, returning to the first such elimination is produced by Vinoo Mankad when he overtook Bill Brown as a non-striker in this fashion twice in the 1947-48 Test series against Australia.
Once considered unfair, though legal, play in the gentleman’s game, such extreme runs on the pitcher’s end are no longer considered “unfair play”. sane” since last October after the ICC revised its rule book.
However, the debate continues if such layoffs are against the ‘spirit of the game’.
Last week, captain India Rohit Sharma withdrew his appeal because he ran out of strikers at the end of the game Mohammed Shami after the Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka left the fold and the Indian racer succeeded.
