Freaky turn

Freaky turn

New Delhi, November 8

Uttar Pradesh left-arm spinner Shiva Singh’s unconventional delivery stride with a 360-degree rotation during their match against Bengal in the Col. CK Nayudu Trophy was called a dead ball by the umpires but his bizarre move did generate a lot of discussion. During Bengal’s second innings, Shiva suddenly twirled before loading up and then sent down the delivery. 

However, even before Shiva had completed his delivery, umpire Vinod Seshan signalled dead ball, much to the frustration of the bowler. According to MCC’s clause, “either umpire shall call and signal dead ball when there is an instance or deliberate attempt to distract under either of the Laws 41.4 (Deliberate attempt to distract the striker) or 41.5 (Deliberate distraction, deception or obstruction of batsman). The ball shall not count as one of the over.”  — PTI
