A run out at the non-striker’s end could ignite a lot of debate in today’s era although it is well within the rules. It all started when Deepti Sharma came up with the antics and won the final game of the three-match ODI series against England Women in September.
Since then, it has been the talk of the town and many cricketers voiced out their opinions on the incident. However, many men pacers have also attempted to run out the non-striker while coming up with the run-up since the incident.
Mitchell Starc, Australia’s fast bowler, warned Jos Buttler at the non-striker’s end in the third game of the T20I series played on October 14, Friday that ended with no result. Amid all this, Riyan Parag, the allrounder from the Rajasthan franchise in the Indian T20 League, said on Twitter on Saturday that he hopes to run someone out at the non-striker’s end during the next edition of the league.
“I’m going to run out someone (at the non-striker’s) next year and it’s gonna create a fun Twitter debate,” Parag wrote on Twitter. Parenthetically, his teammate Jos Buttler was once run-out by Ravichandran Ashwin at the non-striker’s end and it caused a lot of debate.

In other news, the team captains are toiling it hard ahead of the 20-20 World Cup and the skippers met for a press conference on Saturday. The Indian skipper said that he had his playing XI ready for the Pakistan clash and also gave a few hints on Mohammed Shami.
I am looking forward to seeing him: Rohit
The Indian skipper opined on India’s new approach and said that the team would continue playing the same way. Further, he added that teams have changed over the years and highlighted the importance of having an aggressive mindset in the shortest format of the game.
Rohit said that he was yet to Shami and added that he was looking forward to meeting him in the upcoming practice session. “Teams have become fearless and we’re looking to adopt the same approach. 140 used to be a winning total back then but now teams aim to reach there in 14-15 overs,” Rohit said in the press conference.
“Mohammed Shami I haven’t seen but whatever I have heard it is good. We have a practice session in Brisbane on Sunday and I am looking forward to seeing Shami,” he added.
