Dead-Balling Shiva Singh’s 360 Delivery Curbs Bowlers’ Innovation

Dead-Balling Shiva Singh’s 360 Delivery Curbs Bowlers’ Innovation

This incident triggered a debate after the video of the match went viral.

But to the frustration of the bowler and other Uttar Pradesh players, umpire Vinod Seshan signalled "dead ball".

"Under Law 21.1, the bowler must state his/her mode of delivery, which seems to have been left arm round the wicket in this case, but does not state how conventional the bowler's approach should be", the MCC's Law department said in the Lord's Law blog.

Left-arm spinner Singh ran up to the crease normally in the Indian under-23 match before performing the move in his delivery stride in an apparent attempt to put the batsman off.

Uttar Pradesh's young left arm spinner Shiva Singh's unconventional delivery stride with a 360-degree rotation during a CK Nayudu Trophy match against Bengal was called a dead ball by the umpires but his weird move did generate a lot of discussion.

In Uttar Pradesh's mach against Bengal in the CK Nayudu Trophy, the U-19 World Cup champion twirled unexpectedly before the delivery.

Shiva Singh nevertheless got support on the social media as many questioning why a bowler can't bowl with a variation of turning 360 degrees if a batsman is allowed to switch hit. "No Issue at all with this", Michael Vaughan tweeted.

Shiva rotated 360 degrees in his run-up just before the delivery during a domestic game in Kalyani in Kolkata.

There are two laws according to which an umpire can call a ball dead.

"The law only states if an offence is made to distract the batsman, rather than the batter actually getting distracted".

But Law 41.4 says that is is unfair for any fielder to deliberately distract the striker when the bowler is running into bowl.

Former Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar was pleasantly surprised by Shiva's action and terming him a "360 degree bowler", he said this is something he is seeing for the first time. "But when bowlers do something like this it's deemed a dead ball".
