 For my part, they at all times play the sufferer card: Ashwin

However now, most of them have began realizing that the bowlers did not commit any crime there. A lot of them have began asking why you might be asking inquiries to the harmless as a substitute of asking the one that must be responsible. Solely a sure part of the folks appears to have an issue with this.”

Identical to how a batter is aware of when he steps out of the crease in opposition to a spinner or a pacer {that a} wicketkeeper can dismiss them by stumping. Likewise, a non-striker must also know that he could be dismissed, run-out legitimately in the event that they maintain stepping out of the crease and taking that further yard.”
