Mitchell Starc gave Adil Rashid a warning to get again in his crease as a substitute of operating him out on the non-striker’s finish within the forty ninth over of the English innings within the third ODI vs Australia on Wednesday.

Rashid had smashed Starc for a six two balls earlier than this. He was out of his crease on the non-striker’s finish, as England appeared so as to add as many runs as they may on the finish of their innings. Starc, who may have knocked off Rashid’s bails to ‘Mankad’ him out, did not. Instead, he pulled up in his bowling motion and instructed Rashid to remain in his crease.

England went on to put up 302/7 of their 50 overs.

Starc has beforehand made his stance on the ‘Mankad’ very clear. The mode of dismissal has two distinct camps even within the Australian group, as had been proven in a group interview video earlier this 12 months. While some like Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa have mentioned they’re for the Mankad, Starc has all the time mentioned he’ll not run out the non-striker whereas in his supply stride.

Incidentally, Shikhar Dhawan, on his Test debut, had been unintentionally Mankaded by Starc, with the ball slipping out of his palms. However, Australia had not appealed and Dhawan had carried on batting.
