Think about a World Cup closing. 1 to degree scores. Non-striker costs down for a single and is in by 1 / 4 of an inch. Suppose it seems that she had the left the crease earlier than the ball was bowled. Would that be honest? Would working much less to win be within the spirit of the sport?

It is truly fairly easy. Ball comes into play when bowler begins run up. From that second on as a batter or non striker you have to maintain your eyes on the ball, should you’re a bit careless, opposition will get you out. And you may get out at both ends. #ENGvIND
