    I cut a ball to point and set off for a quick single, took a couple steps and saw the ball fielded, so I tried to head back. The thing is, the non-striker and I had met midway and so we both ran to the strikers end, as I returned to my crease. The stumps were broken there, but we were uncertain as to who would be given out, as I had returned to my home crease and we had technically crossed, so we both charged down to the non-striker's end without really thinking about it. We ended up diving in at that end at the same time. No one knew exactly who was out if anyone at all, but I eventually walked.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Oh yeah,

    Thorpe ducking what he thought was a beamer which ended up as a low full toss which hit him on the pad lbw, almost hit his head.
    Or something.

    Once again, let your Uncle Eddie sort it out

    Law 23 (Dead ball)
    1. Ball is dead
    (a) The ball becomes dead when
    (i) it is finally settled in the hands of the wicket-keeper or the bowler.
    (ii) a boundary is scored. See Law 19.3 (Scoring a boundary).
    (iii) a batsman is dismissed.
    (iv) whether played or not it becomes trapped between the bat and person of a batsman or between items of his clothing or equipment.
    (v) whether played or not it lodges in the clothing or equipment of a batsman or the clothing of an umpire.
    (vi) it lodges in a protective helmet worn by a member of the fielding side.
    (vii) there is a contravention of either of Laws 41.2 (Fielding the ball) or 41.3 (Protective helmets belonging to the fielding side).
    (viii) there is an award of penalty runs under Law 2.6 (Player returning without permission).
    (ix) Lost ball is called. See Law 20 (Lost ball).
    (x) the umpire calls Over or Time.

    (b) The ball shall be considered to be dead when it is clear to the umpire at the bowler's end that the fielding side and both batsmen at the wicket have ceased to regard it as in play.

    I assume we're talking genuinely strange rather than contentious. In 2001 in Sri Lanka Marcus Trescothic swept a ball off the middle of the bat and it hit the short leg fielder and stuck in his jumper.

    Yeah, that came to mind as soon as i looked at the title of the thread.

    1999-2000 touring Australians. Lee bowled a bouncer, Parore missed seeing it completely and it hit the side of his helmet. It fell off and hit the stumps. According to his biography, while Parore was dazed, Lee ran right up infront of him, got down on one knee, pointed to the stands and yelled, ".......off ".

    Quite a dismissal. In every sense of the word.

    Which proves the point that there is no point in ducking in the latter stages of a Test match at Adelaide. If he had stayed where he was he could have easily pulled it for some runs.

    And those idiots at Carisbrook thinking that playing up would make the umpire change his mind. And didn't the umpires get it right anyway since it came off his wrist?
