    Nah I can see where this is coming from. The law doesn't specifically say that it's dead ball if the bowler knocks the stumps down; it says it's a dead ball if it's distracting. I can definitely see the argument that it's not distracting if it happens once or twice randomly but if it keeps happening and the batsman makes the umpire aware he's being distracted, then it's deemed distracting.

    Personally I think the batsman should have to deal with it, but I don't think the consistency thing really is at the crux of the matter.

    It's just common sense imo, warn the guy a couple of times and that's that. Not a big issue. Now let's say he did it every single ball then are you suggesting the umpire take no action at all, for the sake of being consistent? Not everything can be answered by the rulebook.
    I'd be calling it outrageous anyway; we'd just have fewer people bothering to take to me about it. It's a poor call IMO unless he's literally doing it every ball or he's doing it on purpose.

    Brilliant tactical work from Smith? Probably not distracted by it at all by knew it'd get into Finn's head.

    Oh yeah, I'm absolutely certain he's doing it deliberately. He just loves being denied well-earned wickets.

    Though now he's done it once, he should do it every time.
    If it wasn't a law then the player would have no right to complain, and the umpire shouldn't have to do anything about it. It has to be a law though, because if a batsman is actually distracted by it then that's a problem that needs to be addressed.

    The umpire acted perfectly. The only issue was why he called it on that ball. Now that it has been clarified, the umpire did everything correct and calls for him to be sacked were a bit premature I'd have thought

    I am not saying he's doing it deliberately...all I wanted to say is anyone else with half a brain would be very clear of the stumps after that.

    Nah he's still on my list; deeming that as a distraction when it happens so regularly in cricket is absolutely bull**** IMO.
