Ind vs sl 1st odi
A run out at the non-striker's end while the batter is backing up has been regarded as an act against the 'Spirit of Cricket', still being termed as 'Mankad' by most of the cricketing fraternity. However, the laws of cricket state otherwise, and hence a bit of drama was witnessed when Mohammed Shami ran out Dasun Shanaka, who was batting at 98*, and captain Rohit Sharma decided to go against the laws and withdraw the appeal.
Sri Lanka were at 291/8 in the last over, requiring 83 to win off the last 3 balls. Kasun Rajitha was on strike while Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka was on the non-striker's end, unbeaten on 98*. Apart from Pathum Nissanka, only the Sri Lankan captain stepped up in a mammoth run chase of 374 runs.
