Twitter reacts after Katherine’s controversial act in Women’s T20 World Cup 2020


England woman pacer Katherine Brunt made the headlines recently after she did not complete a Mankad run out in the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup during the final over of the game against South Africa. The game was evenly balanced as either of the team had the chance to go on top.

WIth South Africa needing 7 off 4 balls, the non-striker Sune Luus came out of her crease early as Brunt came running to bowl. But instead of dislodging the bails at the first place, Katherine Brunt gave Luus a warning.

After Brunt’s caution, South Africa’s Mignon du Preez hit a six followed by a four to win her team the match with two balls to spare. Nonetheless, it was Brunt’s tough act on the field that had the cricket world engage in a debate after the match.

Meanwhile, the commentators and experts in and around the cricket fraternity have replied to the controversial moment by both applauding Brunt’s display of sportsmanship while also criticising her for failing to capture the dismissal. International Cricket Council posted the video clip on Twitter along with a caption and asked the people whether to ‘mankad or to not mankad’

“With the game on the line, Katherine Brunt could have dismissed Sune Luus at the non-striker’s end but opted not to. Moments later Mignon du Preez blasted a game-defining six. What do you think? 🤔,” the caption read.

“Isn’t it against the spirit of the sport not to mankad when it’s right as per law. When a Bowler oversteps without an intention to take unfair advantage, so Batsman can leave or defend the free hit? IMO, When it’s within the rule, not doing Mankad is wrong,” a user wrote.
