Shiva Singh, who plays for Uttar Pradesh, became an internet sensation when footage emerged of him twirling 360 degrees in his run-up in a recent match against Bengal in the CK Nayudu Trophy, an under-23 tournament for India's state teams. Shiva's style too is one of a kind. Bedi was the epitome of a smooth and technically correct action of a left-arm spinner, and it was only natural that Shiva's 360-degree turn before delivering brought out this reaction from the spin legend: "Weirdo", he wrote in his tweet accompanying the video.

However, his delivery was called a dead ball by the onfield umpire.

"If either umpire considers an action, not covered by the Laws, to be unfair he/she shall intervene without appeal and, if the ball is in play, call and signal Dead ball". "The umpires said dead ball, so I asked, "why are you calling it a dead ball?"

UP went on to win the game by an innings over Bengal in three days with Shiva taking four wickets in the match. "But when bowlers do something like this it's deemed a dead ball".

New Mazda3 teased again: hatch and sedan to debut in LA…
The automaker confirms that the next Mazda3 will sit on the Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture, which should improve driving dynamics. We had the chance to drive early prototypes , and they came in both automatic and manual versions.

"I delivered this 360-degree ball against Kerala in the Vijay Hazare Trophy as well, where it was fine".

Singh then compared his bowling action to being no different to when batsmen reverse sweep deliveries at the crease.

Some cricket fans raised the comparison of batsmen's ability to switch-hit, changing their stance from right-handed to left-handed or vice-versa, without drawing the umpire's criticism.

But former England captain Michael Vaughan posted saying he saw nothing wrong with delivery.
