Bull****, how is what McCullum does any different to every bowler that throws the ball back at the stumps? How is it any different to a keeper who waits for the batsman to overbalance before stumping him?That's completely beside the point. You just don't do crap like that. When was the last time you saw a player dismissed in that fashion? Only McCullum does things like that, in the whole of international cricket. Same with the infamous Mpofu and Muralitharan "congratulating a partner on a century/half-century" run-outs. Same with the "massive completely random appeal for a non-existent edge" I complained about in the CH series last year.
What would you rather him do? Not try and get these people out, what is that going to achieve in the long run, an award for sportsman of the year and **** all else. I'm sorry but that's not good enough, if I want to see good sportsmanship I'll go to a high school game, not an ODI or Test.
