But Shiva Singh outdid everyone else - rotating 360 degrees in his run-up just before the delivery during the domestic games.

Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, Singh defended his action and said, "I use different variations in one-dayers and T20s so I thought of doing the same because the Bengal batsmen were developing a partnership.The umpires said dead ball, so I asked "why are you calling it a dead ball?"

An Indian bowler has caught the cricketing world's attention with his freakish run-up technique during a domestic competition.

Umpire Vinod Seshan, however, immediately waved the play off, declaring it a dead ball. The umpires had intervened when he tried to bowl with the 360-degree turn and called it a dead ball.

Former English captain Michael Vaughan is a fan of Singh's action, tweeting he had "no issues at all" with how the rising star approaches the crease.

According to the law 41.2 on fair and unfair play, the umpires have all the right to take the decision on the field. "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.

'I delivered this 360-degree ball (recently) against Kerala in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as well, where it was fine'.

"Batsman always go for the reverse-sweep or the switch-hit against bowlers", he said.

"If you were going to do it every ball, it might be a different story, but when it's a one-off, I think that makes it a bit too hard - I don't really think that's in the spirit of the game".
