The match number 15 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) which was played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants went down to the wire. However, it was the KL Rahul-led side who came out victorious on the final ball of the match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The second last delivery of the match saw RCB pacer Harshal Patel mankad Ravi Bishnoi, who was at the non-striker’s end. In this attempt, Patel could not get the bails of the stumps due to the pace. Additionally, this delivery and attempt was nullified by the umpire.
As per the rules, the bowler cannot run out the batter at the non-striker’s end if the bowler completes the bowling action. In order to run out at the non-striker’s end, the bowler also needs to be inside the crease. However, in this match between RCB and LSG, Patel was outside the crease and also completed his bowling action, thus the run-out attempt being denied.
