Cricket News: Video: Adam Zampa attempts to run out non-striker Tom Rogers, sparks debate | Adam Zampa mankad video
Another BBL 12 game, another hot talking point. An attempted run out of the non-striker, formerly known as the mankad, has made an appearance at the MCG in the match between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades.
Stars captain Adam Zampa, bowling the final over of the first innings, attempted to run out non-striker Tom Rogers. The move sparked loud boos from the crowd, with a few choice words aimed at Zampa from Renegades batsmen Rogers and Mackenzie Harvey.
After the incident was referred upstairs, the third umpire ruled not out as Zampa’s bowling arm went past the vertical. To inflict a run out of the non-striker, the bowler must execute it before they get through their action.
Opinion split on the Adam Zampa run out attempt
As is always the case, opinion was split on social media regarding Adam Zampa’s run out attempt. Some fans believe it is not in the spirit of the game, while others say he was perfectly within his rights to try execute the dismissal.

This follows an eventful few days in BBL 12. Michael Neser’s catch against Sydney Sixers on New Year’s Day sparked a huge debate on social media. A day before, the Strikers believed Marcus Stoinis should have been timed out before his game-turning 74 off 35 balls at the Adelaide Oval.
