By India Today Web Desk: Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc has provided a different solution to the burning issue of Mankading. A hot topic in the world of cricket at the moment, players have been divided between themselves if they should Mankad a batter or not if they try to gain advantage at the non-striker’s end. While the Marylebone Cricket Club – the guardian of the cricket laws in the world, has repeatedly tried to de-stigamatise the mode of dismissal, the players seem to bring it out in the most unsavoury time of the game.

Starc, who served a warning to Jos Buttler during their preparatory campaign to the World Cup, has said that teams could potentially be docked runs when batters try to leave their crease too early.

“Why not take it out of the hands of interpretation, and make it black-and-white?” Starc told The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald. “Every time the batter leaves the crease before the front foot lands, dock them a run. There’s no grey area then.”

With the margins becoming tighter in the T20 matches, Starc’s argument is that docked runs could pile up to become a large number of runs for a habitual offender, which could the practice all together.

“And in T20 cricket where runs are so handy at the back end and games can be decided by one, two, three runs all the time, if all of a sudden you get docked 20 runs because a batter’s leaving early, you’re going to stop doing it, aren’t you?” Starc questioned.

“It’s harder to do down the levels of cricket, but particularly in international cricket, there are always going to be cameras square-on for the front foot and for the run-outs. So, why not? And if it either makes the batters think about it – or stops it occurring – isn’t that a good thing?” STarc further added.

Revealing that he had warned batters plenty of times in his career, the fast bowler said that he would not personally want to run out anyone like that, that does not give the non striker license to do whatever he/she wants.

“I’ve warned batters plenty of times, [Buttler] is not the first occasion,” Starc said. “I warned probably seven Kiwi batters in those ODI games in the top end – some were two metres outside their crease. As I said to Jos, I could never see myself doing it [running a non-striker out], but it doesn’t mean that you should then feel free to leave your crease early,” Starc concluded.
