We all love the game of cricket, no doubt about that, but it isn't perfect. There are arcane little rules and technicalities that annoy, that aren't fair, or perhaps negatively affect a good contest. And then there was the supersub.
My particular bugbear is that a fielder can throw the stumps down and, provided the batsman isn't run out, he can then continue to run off the deflection. To me that's not fair - a fielder has done a smart bit of work, hit the stumps, and then gets penalised for it.
Any thoughts? Does anyone else get irritated by a particular rule?
