Chris Morris’ Hilarious Attempt To Mankad Marcus Stoinis: Since IPL 2019, whenever a cricket fan has heard the word ‘Mankad’, the first thing comes to the mind is Ravichandran Ashwin’s name. Actually, during the IPL 2019 season, Ravi Ashwin ran out Jos Buttler by Mankad which had made to the headlines for such rude activity from the bowler among the cricket fans. However, according to the Indian off-spinner, there is nothing wrong in the Mankad as it belongs to the rules.
Meanwhile, in the ongoing Big Bash League 2019-20, one more incident of Mankad run out came up, however, this time the bowler is involved in the hilarious attempt. Actually, during the 19th match of the ongoing BBL season, Sydney Thunder’s bowler Chris Morris involved in a hilarious attempt to Mankad Marcus Stoinis.
It all happened in the third over of the Melbourne Stars’ innings when Chris Morris was about to bowl to Nick Larkin and Marcus Stoinis was standing on the non-striker’s end. Even before Chris Morris could reach the crease to deliver the ball, the ball popped out of his hand. Meanwhile, Marcus Stoinis was unaware of that and leaves the crease before getting back into the crease.
Chris Morris then cheekily tried to ran out Stoinis while the latter looked at the allrounder in a baffling manner. Morris then turned back with a smile and went to his bowling mark. The official twitter handle of Big Bash League has shared the video of the incident. And wrote in the caption, “The attempted-no-ball-mankad-fake… Chris Morris has that move perfected! #BBL09.” Here we are attaching the video of the same at the below of this article.
