Mankading - Rule 41.16

Mankading "Run-out"

This was a controversial run out that happened in the IPL 2019.

This happened in the match between Rajasthan Royal and Kings XI Punjab.

Ashwin was ready to bowl his next delivery and found Jos Buttler moving out of his not striker crease.

Ashwin took the bails off the stump and appealed to the umpire for run-out and the later was declared Out.

Now there might be many who say it as not a gentleman way of playing but let's see what the rule book says.

Rule: 41.16 - Non Striker leaving his/her ground early.:

If the non striker is out of his/her ground from the moment the ball comes into play to the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the bowler is permitted to attempt to run - him/her out. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one in the over. 

If the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the non striker, the umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon as possible.

So as per law it is out. The only thing what Ashwin could have done is to warn Jos Buttler to remain in crease.
