I remember Ashok Mankad's hit wicket case. Mankad was batting well at that time and was into his 40s.

Yes, I remember it too.
That was a disaster of a series.
44 years on, I still have that chip about England on my shoulder. :grin:
The humiliating defeat at home in 1976-77 doesn't help either to remove it. :grin:
How I hated both these series!

I remember Amarnath handle the ball case, until then I don’t know that rule of batsmen not to touch the ball with hand, but ok with a bat.

The funniest one I found in this was with that player who was on a flight and did not reach the ground in time for the match.

What a way to be given out! :-)

Inzamam ul Haq's 23 run outs were all very funny.

If ball hit to the Fielder's Helmet and catch taken >> batsman will be given out in World cup 2019

Two types of ball will be use from each end during WC 2019

I have seen a funny run out in a inter High School cricket match back in 1967 in Bangalore. I am not even sure if it should have been called a dead ball. One of our batsmen hit the ball to mid-wicket and called for a single; the backing-up non-striker quickly responded and as the fielder got the ball, it was obvious that he had better chance of running the batsman out before he reached the non-striker's end to complete the run. But the throw was wayward and struck the running batsman's outstretched bat and rebounded onto the stumps before he could reach the crease. All fielders appealed and the batsman turned and walked away before the umpire could respond.

Should that have been run out or a dead ball?

Run out only.

Think of a straight drive hitting fingers of bowler and hitting otherside stumps.

As long as an action involve fielder it’s out.
