    The Watson runout - the forensic examination

    What brought about this "crime" against cricketing good sense ?

    1. Was there a call for a run ?

    2. Who should have made the call ?

    3. Why didn't Watson turn back ?

    The third is the most mystifying. If Watson was "ball watching" surely Katich would have been in his line of sight at some point ?

    Evidence please !

    Was one of those ****ty situations. Was Watto's call so Kat was at fault for ball watching but Watto should have been looking for that so he takes some of the blame. But yeah, in Watto's defence, most blokes would have just kept running through.

    Like I said, sucky situation.

    1. Was there a call for a run? No
    2. Who's call was it? Was Watson's to make
    3. Why didn't Watson turn back? Because his legs were convinced there was a run. He just couldn't convince his mouth to tell Katich to run.

    Even though it was the non-strikers call, it was one of those shots that the stiker still had peripheral vision of the fielder. Ball watching is hard to avoid, and in this case it proved hilariously fatal.

    From what both players have said in interviews it sounds like watto may have called but due to crowd noise katich didn't hear it.

    I thought it was Watson 30% to blame, Katich 50% and all of their coaches from U7s 20%
    You know it makes sense.

    Katich's call all day, every day. Unless the batsman is unsighted and can't see the ball, the non-striker should rely on the batsman's call.

    Leave the in front of square/behind square for U/10s where they belong.

    TBF to Watson, Katich wandered a third of the way down the pitch without ever looking at his partner

    If you take his actions in isolation, you'd swear he was taking off for a run so I cant really blame Watson for "responding"

    Amusing but not nearly as funny as the Morton-Chanderpaul run-out. Though I suppose the comedic value is doubled just because Watto is involved.
