    Bowl Out - Cricket's penalty shoot-out

    A recent Twnety20 game was decided through the rare, but very interesting "Bowl Out" rule. Not sure if this is posted before (if it is, please merge with the existing thread). In any case, here is the video clip, hosted by none other than Wasim Akram.

    Interesting clip!! I wonder what would've happened if Mohammad Sami were one of the bowlers.

        You just had to bring bhatija Sami up, didn't you?

        Interesting clip, indeed. Even more interesting was the fact that Wasim Akram publicly admitted that he failed to hit the stumps on both ocassions. The honesty and sincerity of this man.

        I vividly remember one of George Burns' famous sayings:

          Wasim Akram looked like a pansy front of the camera.
          Anyways, I think this bowl out rule is ridiculous, in the even of a tie I think both teams should take turns and whomever scores more runs in a single over wins the game.

            I am taking this would have to be further boiled down as to who would bowl the death over from the opposing team, whether it will be a fast/medium-pacer, or a spinner, and also the fielding restrictions, if any (provided if this rule is implemented).

              Well, I don't think the ability to hit the stumps co-relates with the greatness of a bowler. There is more than an element of luck involved perhaps even more than in the soccer penalty shoot-out where even good strikers have been guillty of missing shots in important matches.
              However, a "tie" is a rarity in Cricket (unlike in Soccer) so whether a "bowl-out" should be used to break the dead-lock or not does not deserve as much debate.

                  Wow,
                  It was good watching Wasim Akram and wow, what an interesting end to the game. I really like the idea and the winning team was goin crazy.
                  I think NZ and WI game recently ended in the same way and NZ won that.
                  Good turn for Cricket anyways,

                    Not sure about the greatness part, but at the highest level, the bowlers are usually very accurate, in the sense of being able to pitch the ball exactly where they want. During training sessions, coaches routinely place a coin on the pitch and ask the bowlers to pitch the ball exactly on that coin. So its not "luck", rather its practice that enables the bowlers at international level to strike the stumps at will when there is no batsman facing them. Obviously in a real match scenario with a batsman spanking them all over the park, they may not be able to fully control their line and length as well as they are trained to.

                        Well...I will just say this.....somebody on this board once quoted Akram as saying that 80% of the time he couldn't be sure what the ball would do after it left his hand. Does it not tell something.

                          I wouldn't take Akram's off-the-cuff remarks too literally. If you hear him before this Bowl Out video clip, you'd think he was a fairly mediocre bowler who couldn't hit the stumps anyway. Its kind of self-depreciating humor that great sportsmen of all times use.

                            Yeah but I bet he had something to do with where the ball landed (ie: accuracy).
