Indian spinner Murali Kartik was at the centre of an unsavoury "Mankading" episode as he ran out an opposition batsman who backed up too far down the pitch during an English county championship match in Taunton.

Kartik was bowling for Surrey in their game against Somerset on Thursday when he ran out 20-year-old batsman Alex Barrow by suddenly stopping in his run-up and removing the bails with the batsman out of his ground.

It has traditionally been seen as unacceptable to dismiss a batsman in this way, known as "Mankading" - named after former Indian batting great Vinoo Mankad's run out in Sydney in 1947 -- unless he has been warned previously. Kartik said he had warned two balls earlier.
