Indian women batter Smriti Mandhana raised an argument in the ongoing Senior Women’s T20 League between Maharashtra and Rajasthan.

Mandhana was furious and raised an argument with the Rajasthan team players following the controversial dismissal. The decision was referred to the third umpire. And finally, it was out as she was found outside the crease.

Mandhana has played four Tests, 71 ODIs, and 84 T20Is with a total of more than 5000 runs across formats. The 25-year-old was part of the Women’s World Cup campaign in New Zealand where India missed out on a spot in the semi-finals marginally.

The dismissal did not affect the result as Maharashtra won with an eight-wicket and 11 balls against Rajasthan.

“While earlier there were a lot of doubts with the run out at the non-striker’s end dismissal. MCC had established a new law which would consider the mode of dismissal as run out”.

“Law 41.16 – running out the non-striker – has been moved from Law 41 (Unfair Play) to Law 38 (Runout). The wording of the Law remains the same,” MCC said in a statement.
