The MCG were booed after Melbourne Stars captain Adam Zampa attempted to sack ‘Manquad’ runout during the big bash derby against Renegades.
The majority of the crowd were Stars fans, but their reaction suggested they were against the controversial act legalized by the ICC last year.
The sacking was famously dubbed “Mankad”, named after the Indian bowler who ran out Australian batsman Bill Brown in the 1948 Sydney Test, and since then every time it has been used It has sparked debate.

Adam Zampa shrugs at Mankad’s wrath 00:32
Zampa used tactics against Tom Rodgers on Tuesday night. His fellow hitter Mackenzie Harvey shook his head in shock as the non-striker strayed too far from the crease during the final over of the Big Bash clash.
The incident was reviewed, but Zampa’s arm “passed the vertical” – had gone too far in his bowling action – and was declared not out.
“I must have warned him,” Brad Haddin said at Fox Cricket.
“I think Zampa was dirty on the ball when Rodgers came in and put Harvey on strike.
“Honestly, I didn’t expect to see it[at BBL].”
Commentator Anthony Hudson added:
During the innings break, Brett Lee explained:
“Listen, I don’t like that rule, I don’t like Mancado’s rule at all. I think they should take it out of their hands.
“The best way to do that is to tell the batsman: Leave the crease and five runs will be docked. Take it from the bowler…I don’t like seeing that in a cricket match.” “
The incident seemed to infuriate Rogers, scoring 5-16, the highest number in Renegade history, including winning Stars Tom Rogers (yes, they have the same name). increase).

Rogers’ Renegades teammate Sam Harper explained at Fox Cricket:
“If he’s going to throw 140 km/h absolute seams, he should get Mankadded more often.”
Stars coach David Hussey told Fox Cricket that the team would withdraw its appeal if it was filed.
“It’s not the right way to play cricket – yet. It was a warning not to let the batsmen leave too early,” Hussey said.
