Indian great batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday lauded the Marylebone Cricket Club’s (MCC) decision to waive off unfair playing laws before a ball is bowled from the non-striker’s end.

However, veteran England pacer Stuart Broad called the move unfair because it doesn’t require any specific skills. A few weeks ago, Victorian Cricket slammed two brothers who used Mankad twice in a single match. Due to undefined rules, the act was regarded as misconduct. It was a legitimate act, however, the ethical significance has always been a big question.

The MCC, the custodian of sports laws, has decided to remove such run-outs at the non-striker’s end from the category of unfair play. Mankad dismissal has been a hot topic of discussion in the past and was considered against the spirit of the game.

Many players, including India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, have considered it the right way to get out. Tendulkar said that he was against the use of the word mankading to mean out in this way. Tendulkar said in a video message that the MCC committee has issued new rules in cricket and he is in strong support of some of these new rules.

He said, “New rules have been introduced in cricket by the MCC committee and I am quite supportive of a couple of them. The first one being Mankading dismissal. I was always uncomfortable with that particular dismissal being called Mankaded.”

“I am really happy that it’s been changed to run out. It always should have been run out according to me. So this is one good news for all of us. I was not comfortable with it all, but that won’t be the case anymore,” he further added.

Stuart  Broad, however, termed the MCC’s decision to legalise ‘mankading’ as unfair and said it would not require any skill. Broad tweeted, “So the Mankad is no longer unfair & is now a legitimate dismissal. Hasn’t it always been a legitimate dismissal & whether it is unfair is subjective? I think it is unfair & wouldn’t consider it, as IMO, dismissing a batter is about skill & the Mankad requires zero skill.”

Many players, including India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, have been considering it as the right way to get out. Sachin Tendulkar said that he was against the use of the word ‘Mankading’ to refer to such dismissals.
