0 54

India captain Rohit Sharma withdrew his appeal against Dasun Shanaka after he was run out by the bowler Mohammed Sami at the non-striker’s end in the final over of the first ODI played at Guwahati on Tuesday. This sporty drama was highly appreciated by International cricket experts as Sharma and Shanaka both have shown very friendly gestures and this incident reminded good relationship between the two countries.

Cricket is a gentlemen’s game today, But it has changed from ugly incidents like match-fixing and sometimes we saw heated arguments between opponents during the game. Today even in school cricket games we can easily see this type of ugly incident. Most of the time ICC imposes fin on cricketers while the match referee has to inquire about these types of incidents.

In the fourth delivery of the over, Shami ran out Shanaka who had tried to take undue advantage by going far out of the crease before the delivery was bowled by the fast bowler. Shami appealed to the umpire in what looked like a sure-shot run out against the batter who was batting on 98n.o., two runs away from a century.

However, Rohit Sharma decided to withdraw his appeal and let the batter have his chance to score a century. Shanaka took the opportunity with open arms and hit 10 runs in the final two balls of the match, and remained not out at 108 off 88 balls.

Asked about the late drama, Rohit said that he did not want to deny Shanaka a shot at a century by Mankading him.

“Shami went for the appeal but he is batting on 98, the way he batted was brilliant so we cannot get him out like that. We want to get him out the way we thought getting him out was right and that (Mankad) wasn’t something we thought,” Sharma said in the post-match presentation of the first ODI.
