    WTF

    so a batsman running towards one of the ends wouldn't try to see where the fielder was
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    He did indeed look over his shoulder, but the mere act of doing that when trying to run will naturally cause the path to deviate slightly, and it was only a slight deviation. Certainly not a "strange line" to me.

    So running from the edge of the pitch on one end, to the wickets at the opposite end, isn't a strange line?

    That's not what happened though. He was running in a straight line and there's a small deviation at the same time as he looks over his shoulder owing to the body turning at that point. It looks like a big deviation because he then has to accelerate and can't straighten up.

    Test it for yourself. If you looked over the shoulder he did, your body actually naturally deviates the other way. It was so clear that he was trying to get in the way of the ball. The fact that he kept running for the wickets without making any attempt to change his path, after turning around, should confirm it.

    You what? Talking complete bollocks here. It goes the way of the shoulder you're looking over. He kept running because readjusting would've taken longer than keeping straight.

    Agreed

    People used to like him because he was efficient, had quirky signals for boundaries and bent fingers

    Now he is just a relatively crap umpire with arthritis

    Believe what you want, but re-watch the highlights reel later. You'll see that it was most likely intended. I thought it was an iffy decision at first, but the more I watched the replays, the more I realised that it was the correct one.

    To me it looked as if he was wanting to make sure Fart had made his ground.
