U-23 bowler Shiva Singh's 360-degree turn hogs limelight

Shiva Singh rotated 360 degrees in his run-up just before the delivery during a domestic game

Left-arm spinner Shiva Singh who was representing Uttar Pradesh in the under-23 CK Nayudu Trophy has opened a new debate after bowling a freaky "360-degree swirl" delivery during a match against Bengal.

'The umpires said dead ball, so I asked "why are you calling it a dead ball?"

The incident has triggered debate online over whether the delivery should be legal.

UP went on to win the game by an innings over Bengal in three days with Shiva taking four wickets in the match. The left-arm spinner's sudden turn to toss up the delivery from the right side had the umpire in a tizzy who declared it as a dead bowl.

The 19-year-old, an age-group worldwide, was playing in a domestic Under-23 league match, but his delivery was deemed a dead ball by the umpire.

Shiva has claimed that this was not the first time he had bowled in the 360-degree style but it was definitely the first time that umpire called it a dead ball.

But former England captain Michael Vaughan had a completely different take, saying he had no issues against the action. The match is being played at the Bengal Cricket Academy ground at Kalyani.

Here, we may question the fact that the law applies only to fielders but in the same blog MCC has stated that a bowler is also regarded as fielder, so he/she also falls under the purview.

But because he had only used it once - and it looked like a clear attempt to distract the striker - the umpire felt that it was the right time to implement the laws of the game. The video shows a left-arm spinner turning 360 degrees midway his bowling runup and attempting a switch bowling.

"Batsman always go for the reverse-sweep or the switch-hit against bowlers, but when bowlers do something like this it's deemed a dead ball". "But when bowlers do something like this it's deemed a dead ball", Shiva mentioned.
