    Very good keeping. People are doing it a lot now. I remember a couple of years ago arguing on here, with Scaly IIRC, that it was good keeping as an England keeper tried to anticipate the paddle by moving to leg, the batsman missed the ball and it went for byes. It was still the right idea as McCullum showed here.

    I still reckon doing it from first slip is more impressive.

    Law 41 states that: "Any significant movement by any fielder after the ball comes into play and before the ball reaches the striker is unfair. In the event of such unfair movement, either umpire shall call and signal Dead ball."

    Define "significant movement".

    I'm not going to define anything I didn't come up with, that's straight from the rule book. My stance on this is it shouldn't be allowed because the batsmen played the shot knowing that the area is vacant. When he was about to play the shot, suddenly that gap was covered without his knowledge. Bit harsh IMHO.

    Although I admit its pretty ****ing awesome to pull something like that off

    Maybe keepers, but definitely not first slip running to leg slip

    Yeah but even if strictly against the rules, there's a greater good to be mindful of. Good cricket like an incredible bit of anticipation/athleticism shouldn't be penalised by rule changes.

    Harsh, life is harsh. Unfair, no way.

    YouTube - McGrath 7/76

    Couple of hauls by Australians in the 1997 Ashes. What interests me is a few of the LBWs, which are referred to as "plum" by the commentators, but I reckon in the hawkeye age they were well high of the pegs.

    Couple of absolute gems here from Paul Reiffel, especially a few outswingers in the 6 wicket haul.

    Also found this horrendous advertisement by Channel 9 for their Ashes coverage back in 1989.
