MCC reminds non-strikers to stay in the crease till the ball is released

Deepti Sharma’s run-out at Lord’s on Saturday may have kicked up a storm but Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the custodians of both laws and spirit of cricket, said the umpires officiated the ODI between England and India women’s teams properly. Deepti’s act of running out Charlotte Dean for backing up too much handed India a thrilling 16-run win. It cleaved the cricketing fraternity into two halves, with the debate raging incessantly ever since on social media.

The MCC, however, reminded the batters of their duties: “MCC’s message to non-strikers continues to be to remain in their ground until they have seen the ball leave the bowler’s hand.”
