To hell with spirit of game: Hardik on ‘Mankading’



“To hell with the spirit of the game, we need to stop making a fuss over this,” star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is clear in his head how the batsman was exhausted, backing away far into the non-forward end. must be perceived.

The ICC has called these types of dismissals ‘exhausted’ and removed them from the ‘unfair play’ section of its rule book.

The changes to the ICC playing conditions rules came into force on October 1.

However, the debate continues whether such dismissals go against the ‘spirit of the game’.

The topic became a hot topic of discussion when Deepti Sharma dropped Charlie Dean at the non-striker end for leaving his crease too early and handed India a historic 3-0 win in the women’s ODI series in England, last month. .

“We have to stop making a fuss over this (staying off the non-striker side). It’s a simple rule like that. To hell with the spirit of the game,” Pandya said on the ICC Review Podcast recorded before the start of the match. current T20 World Cup in Australia.

“If it’s there, remove the rule, simple as that. Those who have a problem, good for them, it’s fine, ”she said when asked how she sees changes in rules and tactics.

“Personally, I don’t have a problem with that (running back far on the non-forward end). If I’m coming out (of the crease) and someone takes me out, that’s my mistake. The (running bowler taking it out) is using the rule in your favor, that’s fine, it’s not a big deal.

Pandya, who played a key role in India’s dramatic four-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan in their opening match of the T20 World Cup, said matchups between particular rival players don’t work in the shorter format.

“Head-ups, honestly, are overrated. I don’t mind saying that. In Test and ODI cricket, it might work, but I don’t think so in T20 cricket. I’m never worried about head-to-head.

“For me, matchups don’t work. Where I hit and the situations I get into, I usually don’t have a choice of matchups. It’s more people who are hitting in the top 3 or top 4 that kind of get a chance to see all the bowlers playing.

“For me especially, it’s just the situation. There are times when a bowler I want to face is bowling, but if the situation doesn’t demand it, I don’t risk it because it’s going to hurt my team. I’m never okay with it. with that”.

Asked about his cricket ambitions, Pandya said: “Something I’ve been focused on since I came back: to be the best version of myself, to bring out the best in me. I’m running towards, I won’t say, greatness, but towards excellence.

“If I want to achieve something, it’s excellence. At the end of my career, if I feel like I’ve achieved excellence at a given point, it’ll be fine.”
