There are those rare occasions when batsmen gift their wickets to the opposition. Well, not so rare actually. Every time they’re out it’s a gift to the opposition. But then, sometimes they add additional padding, or gloss, to the gift wrap.

You ask when this is so? When a batsman runs himself out! When he sets off for an impossible run… a run that was never there… never on. Then, as Flash Gordon will do… he turns mid pitch and commences the return to safety. Only… safety is often to be out of reach. Then the dive is enacted… then the disbelief!! OUT!! Stumps shattered… bails on the ground… wicky walking off down the pitch with a smug smirk on the face. Say no more!
