Shiva Singh bowls with 360-degree turn and hogs limelight

Shiva Singh delivers his unique delivery Shiva Singh delivers his unique delivery

This incident triggered a debate after the video of the match went viral.

Uttar Pradesh's young left arm spinner Shiva Singh's unconventional delivery stride with a 360-degree rotation during a CK Nayudu Trophy match against Bengal was called a dead ball by the umpires but his weird move did generate a lot of discussion. Under Law 21.1, the bowler must state his/her mode of delivery, which seems to have been left arm round the wicket in this case, but does not state how conventional the bowler's approach should be. The umpires said dead ball, so I asked 'why are you calling it a dead ball?'

However, even before Shiva had completed his delivery, umpire Vinod Seshan signalled dead ball, much to the frustration of the bowler.

Singh later told ESPNCricinfo that he had bowled in the same manner in T20 and one-day competitions and that it had not resulted in dead balls being called.

- Summon the offending player's captain and issue a first and final warning which shall apply to all members of the team for the remainder of the match.

As per section 4 of Law 42 (Fair and Unfair Play), "It is unfair for any fielder deliberately to attempt to distract the striker while he is preparing to receive or receiving a delivery".

"I delivered this 360-degree ball against Kerala in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as well, where it was fine. Consequently, it was for the umpire to decide if he felt that the tactic was done as an attempt to distract the striker", the MCC laws department said in the post. Watch Video A long discussion ensued between the umpires and the fielding team that probably argued if there are any laws that prevent the bowler from doing that.

"The law goes on to add that only if the 360-degree twirl should be part of the bowler's run-up for every delivery, then can the umpire step in to deem if the action was done to distract the batsman".
