Running batter out at the non-striker has become so common nowadays.
Since India’s women cricketer Deepti Sharma ran England’s Charlie Dean out at the non-striker’s end, multiple instances of run-out i.e mankading have been witnessed. However, Australian pacer Mitchell Starc tries to give warning to the batter instead of running batter out. One similar instance was witnessed during Australia & South Africa second test.
On the last day of the second test game between Australia & South Africa in Melbourne Cricket Ground, Mitchell was bowling to Sarel Erwee, in the meantime, Theunis De Bruyn who was at the other end, came out of his crease, seeing Sarel leaving his crease, Starc stopped delivering the ball after taking a run and warned Bruyn by saying “Stay in your crease, it’s not that hard.”
Talking about the result of the game, Australia comfortably thrashed the visitors by an inning & 182 runs. Spinner Nathan Lyon scalped 3W-haul and for David Warner’s double hundred in the first innings, he was declared the player of the match. This is Australia’s first win in Test series against South Africa in Australia after losing 3 consecutive series.
