oh dear...this one...I think the first responsibility of the batter backing up is not lift the bat from the crease until the ball is released...as Donnylad soon learned...Yer pays yer money and takes yer choice on this one.
Speaking as someone who was 'Makad-ed' in his first senior game ... it taught me to keep my bat inside the crease .... but ... this is a lousy way to win a game .. and then be pleased and even proud that it had been done - see their captain's weasel words.
It is the sort of thing that an Aussie team of a certain era would have done ....... like bowling underarm at the end of a limited over match ... yes, that team.
Following that incident, the underarm was outlawed I think? It was OK in the Laws but they got changed so ..... how about ... no that won't happen because of the power base in the ICC.
someone tweeted that the 3rd Umpire could routinely check this and call short run when necessary...I think it was Alison Mitchell...if proved successful you could then outlaw the ruse...not an option at anything below that level though...
obviously a very poor way to end a match
