There is no deceit in a mankad. The laws dictate the non-striker must be within the crease up until the point the ball is released, if they're not they can be run out.

How is there deceit when it's a written law of the game?

You're only claiming it's deceitful because it doesn't follow how you expect a game or delivery should go. But an unusual incident does not equal deceit.

So Tom, in 2 of the clips that were in the start of this thread, the bowlers did not run in with the intention of bowling, especially the Hong Kong one - he brings his arm over, holds on to the ball and throws the stumps down. If that's not deception, like the dummy slide/pick up, which has now been classed as unfair play, then I don't know what is. It's like a keeper taking the ball but acting like he's missed it, seeing the batsman move and whipping the bails off.

I can't agree with that - with a stumping you're not deceiving anyone, with a "mankad" you're feigning that you are going to bowl the ball. You run/walk in, gather to deliver the ball, can now even get into delivery stride, then whip the bails off. People don't do it half way through the run up and throw the stumps down.

As you are a qualified umpire can you answer this. on strike batsman takes his stance, outside the crease, keeper standing back. Bowler runs in, doesn't let go of the ball, just keeps running down the wicket, takes the bails off at the strikers end. Is that run out? If not, why not?

So to conclude, we can't agree on this one.

Not sure whether it would be a dead ball or not without looking it up. But in the case of a bowler throwing the ball at the stumps, then yes that would be run out. He could take 2 steps of his run up, stop and throw down the stumps at either end, and it would legitimately be out. (it would also be a no ball)


If you don't like to see deliberate deception in cricket, you must really hate spin bowlers.


If its the deception that is the problem I assume you're 100% fine with the famous Keemo Paul run out then? No deception at all there.

All negated if the batter isnt leaving his crease 🙈

I'm not fine with it, it's just not as bad as the HK one, in my opinion, which differs to yours.

So you think turning your arm over, not letting go of it, following through the action, turning around, throwing down the stumps - is ok? you and your team mates would be ok with it if it happened to them? It wouldn't kick off? If that happened in any league match I played in, there would be uproar, no matter if by strict interpretation, it's allowed.

I somewhat agree with you on that example and would argue that in that example the bowler had gone past the moment they 'would be expected to deliver the ball' and therefore shouldn't be out.

As it happens in this specific case no

But

Watching batsmen after batsmen leave their crease means that now, its probably time to punish it. Backing up is fine but simply dont leave your crease.. stay alert just in case or even leave a split second later rather than pushing it

Again, onus on the batsmen not to be trying to steal yards

Technically, the law doesn't say they can't or shouldn't leave their crease, it just says that if they do so, they're liable to be run out by the bowler (no warning necessary). Its morally fine for the non-striker to leave early, its also morally fine for the bowler to run them out without a warning. There's no need to bring morality into it at all.


"If the non-striker is out of his/her ground from the moment the ball comes into play to the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the bowler is permitted to attempt to run him/her out"

I think if the bowler did that, I'd expect the umpire to call dead ball and say "not out".

In fact I've had a bowler do this (very aggressively) whilst I was backing up, and both me and the umpire laughed at him.

Why would he call dead ball, it's allowed according to what you've been quoting, so should be given out.

They have to have the bails off BEFORE the moment they would normally have been expected to release the ball. Obviously if they go through their bowling action, that point has passed. In fact, given that it takes about half a second to spin round and get the ball down to the stumps, realistically the bowler has missed his chance by the time his arm comes above his shoulder.


and yes, this does mean that by the letter of the law some of those umpiring decisions in the clips at the start of the thread are just plain wrong.

Ironically, in junior cricket its often the umpires that are the problem. They're either the coach of one team, a parent, both of whom suffer from over-competitiveness issues, or some miserable old duffer who thinks Britain has gone to the dogs and anyone under the age of 45 is a degenerate. Soulman sounds like this kind of umpire.

I am neither a parent of any of our jnr players as mine are to young, i certainly dont suffer over competitiveness, am very proud to be British and am well under the age of 45. I am however I seasoned cricketer, and simply dont agree with your views or the fact you dont listen to anyones views and force yours on to others and when they disagree acccuse them of being wrong or in some way stupid.
I will end this conversation with you and others with your views as your are entitled to those views as are others but once again the forum is following foul to people who do not wish to accept to listen to others views, and abuse or put down anyone who dares to do so.
There was another forum member much like yourself a few years back, i wonder if your related!!!

And where is Mankad now?
Does he know we are still arguing passionately in his name?  :)

Mankad died in 1978. Considering the volume of the debate in here over the past 24 hours, if he thought he'd been forgotten he's probably woken up to it again now.

Lol, the hypocrisy. This argument is literally me saying "you don't have the right to impose your personal opinion as to the morality of mankading onto other players" vs you saying "yes I do".

Well it's good to see this has stayed civil...

So you think turning your arm over, not letting go of it, following through the action, turning around, throwing down the stumps - is ok? you and your team mates would be ok with it if it happened to them? It wouldn't kick off? If that happened in any league match I played in, there would be uproar, no matter if by strict interpretation, it's allowed.
That would be not out. If you pretend to bowl and don't let go of it, it's dead ball and you can't run batsmen out. There's no possible deception, the laws are quite clear on that.

I honestly don't get it... not that I mankad people all the time, but can anyone actually explain why it's against the spirit/wrong/morally dubious/anything else it's been called on here? A batsman can only be out if he's not in his crease when he should be, same as every other type of runout. At absolute worst the bowler is taking advantage of someone being dozy, which fair enough isn't the friendliest way to carry on but there's hardly anything you can complain about.
