Indian pacer Mohammed Shami‘s mankad attempt to run out Dasun Shanaka at the non-striker’s end caught a bit of attention and spotlight. Shami caught the Sri Lankan captain short of his crease during his delivery stride and appealed for the runout. Soon after the incident, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma called Shami, and later he withdrew the appeal.

This action by Rohit has got several mixed views. Many Sri Lankan cricketers lauded this act by Rohit while many felt that he was setting a wrong precedent.

The incident happened in the final over when Shanaka was unbeaten on 98. After Rohit Sharma withdrew the appeal, Shanaka not only completed his century but hit a four and a six to end the innings on a high note.

At the post-match presentation, Rohit explained why he withdrew the appeal. He said,

“I mean, I had no idea Shami did that. He then went for an appeal. He was batting on 98, we got to be a little [easy, empathetic]. The way he batted was brilliant, so got to give it to him. We can not get him out like that. We wanted to get him out the way we thought we will get him out but that was not something that we thought of. But hats off to him, he played really well,”
