Shiva Singh bowls with 360-degree turn and hogs limelight

While it is not known when and where this incident happen or which country the video raises a few interesting questions. Is it a legal delviery? Was the umpire right to call it a dead ball Watch: Left-arm spinner Shiva Singh's 360-degree turn that left Bishan Singh Bedi stunned

However, some fans were left scratching their heads over the exact rule and whether or not Shiva Singh's delivery was fair or not. "The umpires said dead ball, so I asked "why are you calling it a dead ball?" The match happened in Kalyani; and as soon as Shiva turned while switching the ball from his left to right and back to left hand delivering round the wicket, the umpire declared it a dead ball, even though the batsman defended seemingly unperturbed.

Umpires in India have nipped a new style of delivery in the bud, refusing to allow a spinner to do a 360-degree twirl before releasing the ball as usual.

Law No. 20.4.2.7 states that the ball is called dead when there is an instance of a deliberate attempt to distract under either of Laws 41.4 (Deliberate attempt to distract striker) or 41.5 (Deliberate distraction, deception or obstruction of batsman).

Here, we may question the fact that the law applies only to fielders but in the same blog MCC has stated that a bowler is also regarded as fielder, so he/she also falls under the purview.

"The law goes on to add that only if the 360-degree twirl should be part of the bowler's run-up for every delivery, then can the umpire step in to deem if the action was done to distract the batsman". Batsmen always go for the reverse-sweep or the switch-hit against bowlers. "But when bowlers do something like this it's deemed a dead ball", Shiva mentioned.

"We managed to win because we played a very, very positive match and we looked for the victory to the very end". Mourinho said: 'Lukaku is training with the team this morning.

"The law states that the offence is the attempt to distract the batsman, rather than the striker actually being distracted".

Seshan should also have awarded five penalty runs to the batting side, although it is not clear from the video if he did that.

It is not a law that is set in stone, it is up to the umpire to take all factors into consideration and make his decision.

He was playing against Bengal in the CK Nayudu Trophy - a four-day domestic tournament for under-23s - when he ran in to bowl.
