IPL Fantasy Cricket 2019 – Mankading Episode

The game of cricket has seen many hot controversies in its history. And ‘Mankading’ is one of the never-ending issues that have opinions from everyone like fantasy cricket game lovers.

IPL fantasy cricket fans know IPL has the habit of tossing a great many controversies every season. This year the extravagant game started on 23rd March. And soon after the start one of the major controversies in the history of IPL popped up. Keeping the trend intact, KXIP skipper R Ashwin buzzed a fresh storm when he ‘Mankaded’ Jos Buttler of RR. He is the first cricketer to be dismissed in such a manner in the history of the IPL.

IPL 2019 got its first dispute and the IPL fantasy league fans as well. What was the episode?

Maybe Punjab was getting desperate to win the match or in this case, skipper Ravi Ashwin was. Jos Buttler was taking away the game from Kings XI Punjab. Punjab didn’t even warn the Rajasthan cricketer earlier. Even though it was completely legal by the laws of the game, it was against the cricketing spirit, despite it being clearly legal by official rules.

Ashwin was bowling his final over, which was 13th for RR during their chase. The way Buttler had been batting, the victory target of 185 looked achievable for Rajasthan. While bowling the fifth ball of his last over, Ashwin appeared to have stopped in his action and waited for Buttler to leave his crease. He, then, Mankaded the non-striker and appealed.

The third umpire Bruce Oxenford supported it and Buttler was furious. Buttler broke into an animated conversation with Ashwin before he departed to the pavilion.

For the fans of IPL T20 fantasy cricket fans let us recount the MCC rule:

The MCC (Law 42.15) states that “The bowler is permitted, before entering his delivery stride, to attempt to run out the non-striker. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one of the over. If the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the non-striker, the umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon as possible.”

The above rule was formed by MCC and normally all the MCC’s rules were approved by ICC before being applied to matches. For many years in international cricket, the rules stated that a batsman can leave the crease once the bowlers’ backfoot lands on his delivery stride.

ICC rule and the difference:

Many were not aware of a rule change that was implemented since the 1st of October 2011, which gives a bowler complete right to run a batsman out before finishing his complete delivery stride (that means before releasing the ball).

The bowler is permitted, before releasing the ball and provided he has not completed his usual delivery swing, to attempt to run out the non-striker. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one of the over. if the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the non-striker, the umpire shall call and signal dead ball as soon possible.

This is where the biggest difference lies in MCC’s and ICC’s ruling. It’s quite absurd to assume that players are unaware of this minute but crucial difference. Once a bowler enters his delivery stride, it does not give the non-striker the freedom to move out of his crease. Unless the bowler has delivered the ball, the non-striker remains at the risk of being ‘Mankaded’. It’s a simple and clear rule.

The history behind ‘Mankading’

The name ‘Mankaded’ was attached with this dismissal way back in 1947. During the second Test match against Australia at Sydney, Indian left-arm spinner Vinoo Mankad ran Bill Brown out for the second time in that tour after the warm-up match against Australia XI.

Not very surprisingly, media cried foul, accusing Mankad to have broken the spirit of the game. However, he received support for his move even from the opposition camp in the form of their then captain, Donald Bradman.

“For the life of me, I can’t understand why [the press] questioned his sportsmanship. The laws of cricket make it quite clear that the non-striker must keep within his ground until the ball has been delivered. If not, why is the provision there which enables the bowler to run him out? By backing up too far or too early, the non-striker is very obviously gaining an unfair advantage,” revealed Bradman.

The bowling team will get no credit other than just the so-called ‘good boys’ image from the media when the opposition steals a win by a close margin.

IPL Fantasy League – Players with Most Sixes

The stage is on the fireworks, as the 12thedition of the glitzy IPL fantasy league is continuing at full swing. Cricket-mad fans wait impatiently these days to watch their favourite players whack massive sixes. And send the cricket ball flying into the stands.

The shortest format of the game is indeed a nightmare for the bowlers who are being hit for maximums every now and then by the batsmen. However, the moment a batsman slams a six it pushes the overall adrenaline quotient up a few notches. It is the exciting moment for the fans who are sitting in the stadium or fans playing IPL fantasy cricket.

Here is a list compiled for IPL T20 fantasy cricket fans about players hitting most sixes in all these years. Wondering which two names will be on the top? Here is the end of your speculation. Read on:

Chris Gayle

It is absolutely no surprise for the fantasy cricket game fans that Chris Gayle is the “King” of sixes. It will take a few years for the second player in this list to match Gayle’s record. In 115 matches, he has hit clean 302 sixes. Wondering where does he get this energy to whack the balls and beat the bowlers? We are wondering too.

AB de Villiers

Yes, the South African legend, ABD – AB de Villiers is taking the second spot in this list. But we have already told you that he cannot touch Gayle’s record for a few years more. In 145 matches, he has hit 192 sixes. Interestingly, the first and second spot of this list has been captured by players of Royal Challengers Bangalore.

MS Dhoni

The finisher and the skipper of Chennai Super Kings are the third in this list. MS Dhoni is near to the record of ABD. In 179 matches, he has hit 191 sixes. So, we sure can see a tough competition for the second spot at the end of this IPL season.

Suresh Raina

This stylish cricketer of Chennai Super Kings is another close contender for the second spot this year. Suresh Raina like his team skipper has played in 180 matches so far and has hit 188 sixes. Raina is the fourth in this list.

Rohit Sharma

The extraordinarily-talented Rohit Sharma is fifth on this list. Playing for Mumbai Indians, in 177 matches, he has hit 185 sixes. There are not many who can match the striking abilities of this cricketer.

Virat Kohli

The flamboyant Virat Kohli of Royal Challengers Bangalore can easily surpass his rivals to take the second spot in this 12th edition of IPL.In 167 matches, he has hit 178 sixes.
