Debate is once again raging after England fast bowler Katherine Brunt did not complete a Mankad run out in the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup during the final over of the match against South Africa.


With the Proteas needing 7 off 4 balls, the non-striker Sune Luus left her crease early as Brunt came running in into bowl.

Instead of dislodging the bails, Brunt gave Luus a warning.


After Brunt’s caution, South Africa’s Mignon du Preez smashed a six followed by another boundary to win her team the game with two balls to spare.

Commentators and experts around the world have responded to the controversial moment by both applauding Brunt’s display of sportsmanship and deriding her for failing to capture the dismissal.
