"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Two hat-tricks in Ashes cricket
You know it makes sense.
Thanks BB, this should be a hard one, but with the yes/no format should not last too long
Q. What is this thing?
This thing was removed from the game of cricket between the years 1774-1816, but was re-introduced in 1817 and has been part of cricket ever since
Some may know this straight away and maybe it is not the best question for this format but I always found this question from my old Umpire exam interesting and funny.
The Striker hits a 'No-Ball' into the field of play and as it nears the boundary, a player who is waiting for permission to return to the field, races onto the ground and fields the ball, thus saving a boundary 4 from being scored. He then throws the ball in hard to the wicket keeper who misses it. The ball runs over the boundary on the opposite side of the ground. At the instant the player fielded the ball, the batsmen had crossed on their third run.
a) How many runs in total are scored?
b) What reasoning did you use to calculate this?
c) How are they entered in the Scoring Record?
A) 13 runs
B) No Ball - 1 run
Overthrows - 4 runs
Runs - 3 runs
Penalty Runs - 5 runs
