I think that is a pretty fair summary of the game although I'm pretty sure that Stu will be unimpressed with the lack of flowery words describing his catch.....self preservation or not!!

You are right, the topic could be debated long into the wee small hours and you will get countless different opinions.

It seems that the wording of the law is causing the confusion.


There is an excellent section on the MCC web site called "Ask the Laws" which clarifies the situation really well. (See http://www.lords.org/laws-and-spirit/ask-the-laws-department/ )

Quote:

Ask the umpire
- with MCC Laws sub-committee

Is it right that the bowler can run out the non-striker who is backing up too far at any time and without giving a warning?

MCC says:

Law 42.15: "The bowler is permitted, before entering his delivery stride, to attempt to run out the non-striker. The ball shall not count in the over. The umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon as possible if the bowler fails in the attempt to run out the non-striker."

So, the bowler may attempt to run out the non-striker during his run-up before he enters his delivery stride (when his back foot lands for the last time before delivering the ball). This means the batsman is "safe" to start backing up as soon as the bowler’s back foot lands.

It has been customary for a bowler to warn the batsman but nothing in the Laws requires him to do so. If a batsman is backing up too early, the bowler is legally entitled to run him out without warning.
