The video of the same is already going viral and the debate has sparked up whether the umpires were right in refraining the bowler to bowl with that action.
Singh, a 19-year-old slow left arm bowler for the state of Uttar Pradesh in India, has also played for India's national under-19 team. He was recently involved in the C.K Nayudu Trophy encounter as UP faced off against the Bengal.
Left-arm spinner Shiva Singh who was representing Uttar Pradesh in the under-23 CK Nayudu Trophy has opened a new debate after bowling a weird "360-degree swirl" delivery during a match against Bengal. The ball pitched just wide of leg stump and the batsman blocked it out on the leg side.
The batsman defended the ball with relative ease but umpire Vinod Seshan immediately deemed the delivery to be a "dead ball".More news: 'Heartbreaking', 'Gutted' - Some Fans React After Arsenal Star Suffers Serious Injury
The law says "Either umpire shall call and signal Dead ball when ... there is an instance of a deliberate attempt to distract under either of Laws 41.4 (Deliberate attempt to distract striker) or 41.5 (Deliberate distraction, deception or obstruction of batsman). But when bowlers do something like this it's deemed a dead ball", he was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.
It may be mentioned that Singh was bowling around the wicket.
But former England captain Michael Vaughan had a completely different take, saying he had no issues against the action.
While some feel the run-up is irrelevant as long as the ball was released normally, others felt that the swirl was a deliberate attempt to distract the batsman.More news: Bourke Street stabbing: One dead, man arrested in Melbourne
"Firstly, the Laws don't dictate what a bowler's run-up should look like".
Some cricket fans raised the comparison of batsmen's ability to switch-hit, changing their stance from right-handed to left-handed or vice-versa, without drawing the umpire's criticism.
