I love it when batsmen try a reverse sweep to me and fuck it right up - which in the surrey county league is far more often than not.

One time 'You're too shit to play that shot" got me a spirit of cricket warning.

"Told you so" got me a big laugh when the next ball I bowled him.

Would this be a legitimate reason for the bowler to pull out of the ball?

This only really applies to the true greats.

Like Nick Browne.

Re: LBW question
Unless you're truly ambidextrous, it's a big risk to the batsman. If he wants to take that risk, let him.

Starts his run up
Was reading that some umpires have warned players (ie Pietersen) for changing from right hand to left hand but they couldn’t see any law against it.
Personally given bowlers can’t change hands or change from over to around the wicket without notifying the umpire and batsman I don’t think you should be able to change your stance mid delivery.

Starts his run-up or releases the ball?

Re: LBW question
Law 36 states that what is offside & leg side is determined by the batsman’s stance when the ball comes into play.
That is when the bowler commences his run up

Re: LBW question
For the sake of argument, say the ball leaves the bowler's hand just as the batsman is changing and it's impossible to determine if he's got a right or left handed stance... then what?

Re: LBW question
What is off and what is leg is decided at the point when the ball comes into play I.e. leaves the bowler's hand.

Send down a last moment wide and providing your keeper is a superior quality gloveman like FOZZY in his pomp there might well be a decent chance to stump any cheeky fucker attempting this.

Re: LBW question
When a batsman "back away" a good bowler has time to adjust and follow them.

Re: LBW question
With players switch hitting and moving around in the crease ( ie jumping outside off to hit to a shorter boundary to leg) there needs to be more thought on what are wides and what could and should be lbw.

Re: LBW question
But a bowler can fire the ball down the "new" leg side and not get called for a wide, in one day cricket.

That depends on how early the batsman switches, I would imagine it would be difficult for a fast bowler, who has already got his target lined up in his head, to make a new target unless his target is stumps in which case it's moot

That would make the slips almost useless and the square leg umpire to a point umpire.

It does.

Re: LBW question
Fair enough, I know in baseball you can't switch hit during a pitch, in fact once you switch hit, you have to use the same side for as long as he bats?

KP used to change as the bowler was bowling which made it even more impressive he could do it in time. If you were to do it in the runup the bowler would just stop

Re: LBW question
Yeah you can, FC. KP used to switch hit from time to time after I taught him how.

Re: LBW question
Don't think he can change during the bowler's run?
