The 'worst' rules of cricket
No-ball run rule
The whole drama at Dambulla began just because Virender Sehwag was not allowed to add his sixer to his individual tally of runs because the no-ball happened before he hit it and therefore the century was not given.
The current rule
If a team requires one run to win the match and the bowler over steps to bowl a no-ball, the single run derived from the illegal delivery would take the team to victory and the match would end immediately. Therefore, even if the batsmen would have taken runs of the delivery, those would not be added to his personal score as the game would have deemed to have ended once the no-ball has been bowled.
The change needed
The batsman should be allowed his share of runs from a no-ball, even if that single run from the no-ball achieves the win for the side. The logic behind this is to provide the batsmen a fair deal for the all the runs which he has scored off the ball. And more importantly, it shuts out any chance of repeat of Randiv-Sehwag kind of episode.
