India spinner’s 360-twirl causes mass debate

Shiva Singh’s pre-delivery twirl – he began and ended his run-up with a left-arm around the wicket action – was deemed to be a method of distraction by umpire Vinod Seshan, who called dead ball

When Indian bowler Shiva Singh pirouetted to the popping crease in a recent under-23 game in Kolkata he set in chain a series of events that have caused widespread debate in the cricketing world.

Singh’s pre-delivery twirl – he began and ended his run-up with a left-arm around the wicket action – was deemed to be a method of distraction by umpire Vinod Seshan, who called dead ball.

In an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Singh said that this was not the first time he had employed his 360-turn prior to the moment of delivery and, on a previous occasion, he had not been stopped by the match officials.

“I use different variations in one-dayers and T20s so I thought of doing the same because the Bengal batsmen were developing a partnership,” he said. “The umpires said dead ball, so I asked, “why are you calling it a dead ball?”

“I delivered this 360-degree ball against Kerala in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as well, where it was fine. Batsman 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.”

So is Singh’s innovation comparable to modern strokeplay?

The Law of the game regarding deliberately distracting the batter is fairly clear.

While there is no definition of what the bowler’s run-up should look like, Law 41.4  states that “it is unfair for any fielder deliberately to attempt to distract the striker while he/she is preparing to receive or receiving a delivery”.

Furthermore “if either umpire considers that any action by a fielder is such an attempt, he/she shall immediately call and signal dead ball and inform the other umpire of the reason for the call”. 

The MCC reiterated on Thursday that the bowler does count as a fielder and supported umpire Seshan’s interpretation of the situation.

“The Law states that the offense is the attempt to distract the striker, rather than the striker actually being distracted,” a blog post on the cricket lawmakers’ website read.

“Consequently, it was for the umpire to decide if he felt that the tactic was done as an attempt to distract the striker.

“Unless the 360-degree twirl was part of the bowler’s run-up for every ball, the umpire may need to consider whether he/she feels that the twirl was done in an attempt to distract the batsman in some way.

“This is particularly so if there was no apparent advantage to be gained from the twirl, unlike, for example, the bowler varying the width of the release point or the length of his/her run-up, which are entirely lawful.”

There are prior examples of bowlers being pulled up for distracting batters – in 2009, Stuart Broad was warned by match officials after pointing towards cover during his run-up, for example – while umpires are entitled to deduct five runs from the bowling side if they feel there has been a deliberate attempt to put the batting side off their game.

Singh said that he has bowled the 360-degree turn delivery before

One former elite umpire, Simon Taufel, was not impressed by the delivery.

He told cricketnext: “It’s up to the umpire but one would have to ask why the bowler did this and have to assume the only reason would be to distract or put the striker off. Doesn’t seem right or fair to me. If it is his normal bowling action then maybe a different outcome.”

A video of Singh’s action went viral on Thursday, causing substantial debate among recreational players on social media.

The opinion was split, with some arguing the bowler’s case, saying that they must be afforded the opportunity to innovate as batters have in recent years.

Others, though, described the technique as unnecessary and against the spirit of the game.

Pakistan Captain Sarfraz Ahmed slams ‘disgraceful’ Ross Taylor in Mohd Hafeez action controversy

 Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistan captain, has lashed out at Ross Taylor after the New Zealand batsman appeared to publicly question the legality of Mohammad Hafeez’s bowling action during the first ODI in Abu Dhabi.

Taylor made the gesture at the end of Hafeez’s first over, when he seemed to look directly at the umpires – or his partner Tom Latham – and mimicked delivering the ball with a bent arm. Whether or not it was an attempt to call attention to Hafeez’s action, it enraged Sarfraz, who had a lengthy chat with the umpires, and had to be calmed down.

That wasn’t the end of the episode as Sarfraz persisted with Hafeez, and kept exchanging comments with Taylor, looking none too happy with the New Zealand batsman. The umpires Shozab Raza and Joel Wilson eventually got involved and had a chat with Taylor.

Later, Sarfraz called Taylor’s gesture “disgraceful”.

“I will say that Taylor’s action was not correct,” Sarfraz said in his post-match press conference. “It’s not his job to give (the) action which was shown on TV. It was disgraceful, for me.

“His job is to do batting and if he concentrates on that, it’s better. I complained to umpires that his action did not come under sportsmanship.

“Ross is a professional cricketer and he should not have done that. He did it two or three times – it’s (the) umpires’ job. Hafeez’s action has no problem and (Taylor) was trying to create an issue without a reason.”

As well as how it impacts how the officials view Hafeez’s action, Taylor could face the possibility of sanctions himself. They may not relate to dissent but it could come under on-field behavior. Pakistan is understood to have spoken to the match referee Javagal Srinath about it as well.

A similar incident had occurred in 2009 when Saeed Ajmal was called for a suspect action and he felt it had been the result of an opposition batsman – in that case, Australia’s Shane Watson – who had directed the umpire’s attention to the way he bowled his doosra.

That this one involves Hafeez makes it particularly uncomfortable for Pakistan. The ICC has ruled his action illegal no fewer than four times in his career; three of them in the last four years.

Hafeez was first reported almost 14 years ago during an ODI tri-series in Australia in 2005. Regulations concerning illegal actions were different back then and he soon returned. In 2014, his action was reported during the Champions League T20, and then again following a Test match against New Zealand later that year. He was suspended from bowling after results indicated the flex of his elbow was more than the allowed 15 degrees.

Hafeez finally got to bowl again in April 2015, but a month later, he was back under the umpires’ scanner. Since that constituted the second report in the space of two years – with the first one resulting in a suspension – the ICC put his offspin on ice for 12 months.

Hafeez returned to bowling after his ban, clearing a test of his action in 2016, but the issue cropped up again leading to his latest suspension in October 2017. He eventually received a clean chit from the ICC in April 2018 and now, after a late call-up to Pakistan’s squad for their ongoing home season, he has bowled 19 overs in one Test and six T20Is against Australia and New Zealand, without drawing any attention to his remodeled action before this.
