Hardik Pandya’s big statement about ‘Mankading’, said – don’t care about sportsmanship…
Dubai. Indian team’s veteran all-rounder Hardik Pandya has supported the run out (mankading) of the batsmen at the bowling end without bowling the ball. He said that he does not care about the spirit of the game in this matter and the batsmen should avoid going beyond the crease. ‘Mandaking’ was once considered ‘inappropriate’ in the game, but the ICC (International Cricket Council) has now changed the rules to make it a valid method of run out.
In this matter, the discussion about sportsmanship is going on in the cricket world. Hardik, who played a brilliant role with the ball and bat in the Indian team’s victory in the opening match of the T20 World Cup against Pakistan, said, “Personally, I have no problem with it.”

He said in the ‘ICC Review Podcast’ recorded before the match against Pakistan, “If I go out of the crease and someone runs me out, it is my fault. He is resorting to rules for profit and there is nothing wrong in that.”

The issue took hold when Indian women’s team player Deepti Sharma had run out Charlie Dean at the bowling end in the third and final match of the series in England tour. Hardik Pandya said, “We should avoid resorting to any excuse in this. It is easy enough to understand that this is part of the rules. In such a situation, one should not care about the spirit of the game.
When asked about his cricketing ambitions, Hardik Pandya said, “Ever since I came back from injury, I am trying to do my best. If I want to achieve something, it is excellence in this sport.”
