MCC HAS RECEIVED SEVERAL QUERIES REGARDING THE ATTEMPTED RUNNING OUT OF THE NON-STRIKER IN A BIG BASH LEAGUE GAME BETWEEN MELBOURNE RENEGADES AND MELBOURNE STARS TODAY.

The bowler, Adam Zampa, attempted to Run out the non-striker, Tom Rogers, who was given not out by the umpires.

Law 38.3 states:

“If the non-striker is out of his/her ground at any time from the moment the ball comes into play until the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the non-striker is liable to be Run out.”

The point at which the bowler would normally been expected to release the ball has long been defined by MCC as the highest point in that bowler’s action.

The non-striker is no longer able to be Run out in this way after the bowler has reached the highest point in his/her action. This is so that the bowler cannot pretend to bowl the ball in order to tempt the non-striker out of his/her ground, go through his/her action, and then come all the way round and attempt a Run out.

The umpires correctly gave the non-striker (Rogers) not out, as the bowler (Zampa) had not attempted the Run out before going past the point at which he would normally be expected to release the ball.

As with all incidents regarding the running out of the non-striker, MCC would like to re-iterate that the best way for non-strikers to prevent being Run out is to remain in their ground until they see the ball released by the bowler.
