Let the batsman know the bowler is watching tell him to knock the bails off with the batsman out of his crease but don't appeal.
If the batter still advances after that  knock the bails off and appeal  no excuses he's had his warning and still trying it on.

Better still if the leagues declare it as an acceptable form of dismissal to avoid any controversy. Mankad rule applies, so back up at your own risk. Period.

Our league pretty much did this on their website before the 2018 season with a reminder that the wording had changed. As I said previously we only experienced one in the T20 cup but Id be interested to know how many occurred over the season

Hi, it's been a while since the end of our season, but I mentioned somewhere that I'd report how it panned out.

I had a discussion with the team at training about the Mankad.  I'd taught them all to back up correctly previously, and I don't think any of them were aware at the time, when the one opposition batsman in particular was taking advantage.  Told them about warnings, how to correctly execute a Mankad.  My stance on warnings at the time was to clearly warn the opposition coach before the match, and let him deal with the information as he saw fit.  I think it was only a couple weeks later the Buttler/Ashwin debacle popped up, so it was quite topical at the time!

As it turned out, we never met either team with the players with 'questionable' backing up, so the issue didn't come up, but it will still be there waiting for us next year.
As some of you have suggested, I think I'll clarify things at the Association pre season meeting, and see what happens from there.

Again, thanks to everyone for your contributions to what I thought was a healthy discussion.

2 games into my season and already had someone try and do an Ashwin without a warning to the batter, lots of laughing as the batter at the bowlers end was level with the umpire at the time lol.

No attempts in 5 games as yet but 5 warnings as batsmen are still leaving their crease early (both our side and oppos). It seems to make a difference as some people are not stealing yards as its becoming clear you can be run out
