Team India off-spinner R Ashwin want bowlers to use the new ICC rule related to running out of non-strikers without being doubtful. Ashwin was criticized for going against dismissing Jos Buttler who was at the non-striker’s end in an IPL game. Many fans also criticised him for the dismissal as it was deemed going against the ‘spirit of cricket’.

But in 2022, the MCC made some new revisions to the laws of cricket, that will come in to effect from October 2022. One of the new regulations said that the run-out of the non-striker which was deemed as unfair play earlier, has now been included in the fair mode of dismissal and will be considered as a run-out.

While talking on his YouTube channel, Ashwin said, “Law destigmatizes the bowlers. Essentially, they are saying run the batsman out. Many bowlers feel ‘oh our batsmen themselves might feel upset (if they run out non-strikers). They also feel what the world will say about them. That fear itself makes them not do it. I want to tell the bowlers again.”

“The one feet the batsman take (by moving out early), can end or change your careers. The batsman on strike might hit a six. If you take the wicket (by running out) your career might go up, else with the six (and runs) you might go out of team next match. That’s the kind of impact. I urge the bowlers not to think and should use this in their favour is my thought process,” he added.

Soon after this decision, David Warner has continued to call the run-out at non-striker’s end against the spirit of cricket. While speaking to Cricket Australia, he said, “I still think the history of the game suggests it’s a spirit of cricket thing… You don’t expect players to do that.”

“I do agree with the fact that if you are backing up, and you’re out of your crease by a long way (you are fair game). I think it happened more predominantly at the end of a white-ball 50-over games, or obviously in T20 cricket we’ve seen it but at the end of the day, as a batsman, you’ve got to stay in your crease.”

“There’s no doubt about that, and if you’re silly enough to get caught out like that and run out, that’s your own fault. You’re told not to leave before the bowler lets the ball go, so just don’t do it,” Warner added.
