Black Caps coach fumes over run-out rule

CRICKET: New Zealand coach Mike Hesson wants cricket lawmakers to change a particular rule regarding run-outs.

The Kiwis were left shaking their heads when Neil Wagner was given out by the third umpire during the second Test against Bangladesh.

Wagner had grounded his bat across the line after a run, but because it was then in the air - along with the rest of him - when wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan flicked the ball on to the stumps, the Blacks Caps batsman was sent packing.

With his feet yet to make contact with safe ground, it was the correct decision, at least according to current rules.

"It's obviously been around for a long time but it seems a little bit unfair,” Hesson said.

"When your bat bounces over the line once you've made your ground, that's not really what the run-out's all about.

"I personally think it needs a bit of tinkering.”
