With experience, Kieron Pollard has tremendous match-awareness and he gave a glimpse of that when he stopped in his run-up and looked at Shikhar Dhawan and warned him of being mankaded if he tries to leave the crease early. pollard did that when the game was slipping out of the MI grasp. Over the years, Pollard – who is a key member of the Mumbai outfit – has been a matured cricketer and a fierce competitor. He issued a warning to the well-set Dhawan but did nothing further.

Here is the video of what actually transpired:

A couple of days back, footage of Dwayne Bravo surfaced on the internet where he could be seen backing too far outside the crease. The move was criticised by plaudits.

Fans would not forget the image of Ravichandran Ashwin mankading Jos Buttler. It drew massive reactions from across the globe. Mankading remains an interesting and debatable topic in cricket to date.

As per playing conditions of the IPL and the laws of cricket, there is no need to warn the batsman for this type of dismissal. Here’s what the relevant law and playing condition says:

“41.16.1 If the non-striker is out of his ground at any time from the moment the ball comes into play until the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the non-striker is liable to be Run out. In these circumstances, the non-striker will be out Run out if he is out of his ground when his wicket is put down by the bowler throwing the ball at the stumps or by the bowler’s hand holding the ball, whether or not the ball is subsequently delivered.”

Meanwhile, the Capitals beat the defending champions by six wickets to end their winless streak against them.
