- This would be called when a batsman is running two or more, but fails to make his ground and puts his bat in short at one of the turns.
- Knocking a run off the score is signalled by touching one shoulder with the hand of the same arm.
- We also have a penalty clause now for a batsman who runs deliberately short.
- You may well ask why a batsman would want to do that, but he may well want to keep the strike.
- If a good batsman is in and wants to protect a 'rabbit' at the other end, he might run two with one short in order to retain the strike, knowing that only one would be added to the score.
- If he does that now, we can penalise him and no runs would count.
- It's cheating really, but it very rarely happens.
- I can't imagine any batsman giving that serious consideration, though of course it can happen by accident.
