Abhinav Mukund was out ‘twice’ in the second innings
In the 11th over of India’s second innings, Josh Hazlewood trapped Abhinav Mukund lbw first before ball also lodged off his off-stump.
Team India opener Abhinav Mukund, who has been recalled after a gap of about 6 years was ‘out twice’ in the second innings for 16 runs.
In the 11th over of India’s second innings, Josh Hazlewood trapped him lbw first before ball also lodged off his off-stump and he was declared out ‘bowled’.
Explaining exclusively this ‘double’ mode of dismissal, Fraser Stewart, the Cricket Academy Manager at Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), says, “The reason for this is that bowled is the most definitive dismissal, where others, such as lbw, sometimes have an element of doubt in them. If the striker is bowled, there is no doubt”.
Section 30.2 of the MCC Laws of Cricket: “The striker is out bowled if his wicket is put down as in 1 above, even though a decision against him for any other method of dismissal would be justified.”
The only other dismissal with such a ranking is Caught (Section 32.2), which states: “If the criteria of 1 above are met and the striker is not out Bowled, then he is out Caught, even though a decision against either batsman for another method of dismissal would be justified.”
So, if the ball hits the striker’s pad and satisfies the criteria for lbw, but then goes on to hit the bat and is caught, the striker would be out caught, rather than lbw.
Abhinav Mukund was out on a duck in the first innings.
The longest gap without wartime interruption for a batsman to go out without scoring in the immediate Test innings is Grant Bradburn (New Zealand) 8.27 years (1992-2000). England’s Pocock was a pretty good guess as well, at (8.05 years).
