India opener Smriti Mandhana on Wednesday mentioned the rules allow the bowlers to resort to ‘Mankading’ but the batters may be warned before being dismissed.
The debate over this technique of dismissal was ignited once more when England’s Katherine Brunt not too long ago opted in opposition to ‘Mankading’ South Africa’s Sune Luus in a crunch scenario throughout a bunch stage match within the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
With the sport on the road, Katherine Brunt may have dismissed Sune Luus on the non-striker’s finish, but opted to not. Moments later Mignon du Preez blasted a game-defining six.

“Well, I think it is in the rules of the game, that you can get the batter out. But I think it is good for us to give warning once, or twice maybe,” Mandhana mentioned on the eve of India’s essential match in opposition to New Zealand within the girls’s T20 World Cup.
“As a batter, if I keep doing that then the third time I think the bowler has the right to get me out. So that’s what I feel (laughs).”
Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had used mankading to take away Jos Buttler in an IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals final 12 months, stirring numerous debate and dialogue on the rules governing the dismissal.
Early this month, England pacer James Anderson had urged ICC to eliminate mankading after Afghanistan spinner Noor Ahmed had dismissed Pakistan opener Mohammad Huraira of their quarterfinal conflict on the U-19 World cup in the identical trend.
Smriti is more likely to play the match in opposition to New Zealand after lacking India’s final sport in opposition to Bangladesh as a consequence of sickness.
India are at present unbeaten within the match after two successive wins over defending champions Australia and Bangladesh.
