The WCC met at the ICC headquarters in Dubai last week and is now talking calm about adopting this rule at all levels of the game (from recreational cricket to elite level) as the non-striker at the end It is under the rules to run out a player standing ahead of the crease.
The MCC said in a statement on Thursday: “The most important factor that can put an end to all doubt and controversy in a simple way over the manner of such dismissal is that the player standing at the non-striker’s end follows the rules.” Do it and stay inside your crease until the ball is thrown from the bowler’s hand.
According to this, ‘The issue also came up in the discussion in Dubai that the bowler is criticized for getting out like this. All the members of the committee were unanimous that the batsman who breaks the rules of the game and stands ahead of his place at the crease is guilty.
“They also agreed that the bowler is not required to give any warning to the batsman, confirming that he has the authority to dismiss the offending batsman on the spot,” the statement said. The great Sri Lankan cricketer Sangakkara said, ‘The bowler is not the ‘villain’ (villain) here. Each batsman has the option of staying inside his crease or risk being run out if he tries to move forward. If he stays out of his crease, he is the one breaking the rules.
