‘Mankading’ in cricket, completely legal as per ICC rules, is in news once again due to an incident which took place during a T20 match of the ongoing South African women u19 vs Indian women U19 five-match T20I series. Indian spinner Mannat Kashyap ran out a South Africa batter on the non-striker’s end. The batter was all set to leave the crease to return back to the pavilion. However, the Indian team decided to withdraw the run-out appeal, allowing the South African batter to resume her innings.

Following the incident, debates and reactions on social media took the internet by storm, as expected. Meanwhile, 29-year-old Australian cricketer Megan Schutt is facing heat from Indian fans for ‘liking a tweet’, labelling Indian players as ‘horrible person.’ The tweet features Indian cricketers trying to ‘mankad’ players at non-striker’s end. 

Some Indian fans even questioned whether the Aussie cricketer will participate in the upcoming Women Indian Premier League (WIPL). The much-awaited tournament is set to be played for the first time ever in 2023.
