"Ryan Harris, CA High Performance coach, has been charged for breaching the CA Code of Conduct on 10 January 2018, in relation to a number of tweets he sent about the KFC Big Bash League match featuring Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes", a spokesman said. The fielder picked up and threw towards the wicketkeeper. That was ruled out as Ross had made his ground before the ball hit the stumps but the third umpire then declared him out for obstructing the field.

"NOTE: For the avoidance of doubt if a batter, in running between the wickets, has significantly changed his/her direction without probable cause and thereby obstructed a fielder's attempt to effect a run out, the batter should, on appeal, be given out Obstructing the field".

"37.2 Not out Obstructing the field".

Putting on his umpire's hat, Payne said he believed the decision should have been not out.

Walters has said that while the Heat accepted the decision, he wondered at CA's priorities. "If I get fined for that, fair play", McCullum said.

On that occasion, the former Kiwi captain was writing a column for a United Kingdom newspaper, and lashed Smith for appealing "obstructing the field" when England's Ben Stokes blocked a run-out opportunity from the bowler when he reaching out to block the oncoming ball with his glove in an ODI at Lord's.

For their study, Chen and colleagues enrolled women at 20 clinical sites across China between March 2015 and November 2015. Multiple embryos result in multiple births, but also come with many complications.

"I appealed for the run-out then when I saw on the replay Rossy changed his line we asked "has he changed his line, can you check for obstructing the field as well?"

Prominent cricketers on social media quickly voiced their opinions on the matter, with Australia global Glenn Maxwell among the most forthright.

It is this distinction that had social media split on Wednesday night, with former Australian pair Dean Jones and Jason Gillespie among those arguing in favour of and against the decision respectfully.

While this turn of events surprised many, most onlookers, including some prominent cricketers and experts felt that the decision was uncalled for and to an extent, unjust as Ross hardly had any other way to go if he were to avoid being hit by the throw.

Perth Scorchers bowler Andrew Tye wrote: "Seriously!" You could see he was clearly protecting his body, not his wicket. "There are two aspects of the dismissal, Ross turned his back to keep looking at the bloke throwing the ball but the batsman acted more in self preservation than running into the line of the ball", Payne said. On this occasion tonight. Alex Ross was dismissed was the personal score of 27 runs off 19 balls. Out or not out?
