In the first innings of the final Ashes Test of 2009, Ricky Ponting faced a ball which was deflected, off something, into the wicket-keeper’s hands. The English XI appealed, and in the agonizingly long time that it took Asad Rauf to decide, Jonathan Agnew (commentating on Test Match Special) reasoned as follows: ‘Either the ball hit Ponting’s bat or it hit his pads. If it hit his bat, he is out caught behind. If it hit his pads, he is out lbw. So, either way, he is out’. Rauf, however, appeared to disagree with Agnew’s reasoning, and Ponting stayed at the wicket.
