T20 World Cup 2022: “Just to avoid the drama that follows”

South African spinner Tabraiz Shamsi has scrapped the idea of ​​bowlers giving non-strikers a warning before running them out if they try to belay too much.

Journalist Peter Della Penna has been very active on Twitter ever since England players and media questioned Indian all-rounder Deepti Sharma for failing to keep up the “spirit of cricket” by sidestepping Charlie Dean at the end of the non-striker.

Penna was at it again as he posted screenshots of Sri Lankan batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa putting down significantly in the opening game of the T20 World Cup against Namibia. Here’s what he tweeted:

Any Namibian bowler has an opportunity to pass Bhanuka Rajapaksa on the non-forward end. He leaves his non-striker line before the bowler even gets past the umpire…More than a full yard from the handoff point.

Tabraiz Shamsi saw this tweet and indirectly warned the batters that he will not let them take advantage by leaving the non-forward circle too soon. Here’s what he wrote in his quote tweet:

“People always say there should at least be a friendly warning first, right? Can we publicly caution ALL batters in the world who leave their crease prematurely with a tweet at once? Just to avoid the drama that follows after such a run out.”

People always say there should at least be a friendly warning first, right? Can we publicly tweet ALL batters in the world who leave their crease early? Just to avoid the drama that follows after a spout like that 🤔 twitter.com/PeterDellaPenn…


Tabraiz Shamsi had similar views when asked about the Deepti Dean saga

In a previous press conference, Tabraiz Shamsi had expressed a similar opinion when asked how he felt about the whole Spirit of Cricket debate that started after Deepti knocked out Dean.

The spinner believes that if bowlers must keep their front foot behind the pop-in crease to avoid a no-ball, batters should also not back down to avoid a run-out. He said:

“My views have been quite public. When bowlers need to keep their foot behind the line, batsmen should do the same. Rules are there and I see no controversy in them. Both sides should play fair.”

Do you have a feeling that during the T20 World Cup a batsman could go out like this? Let us know in the comments.
