The line moves when the batsman moves: Aakash Chopra

“In case it’s a switch it, for instance, in the event that a right-hander turns and turns into a left-hander, he ought to be treated as a left-hander. Truth be told, it offers something to the bowlers when he beats the batsman on the two sides it’s as yet not wide in light of the fact that he (the batsman) has changed while the field continued as before,” he expressed.
“A ton of Indians may be feeling somewhat hard done by however then, at that point yet Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s wide ought to have been given a wide, it wasn’t and presently Sakariya’s ball didn’t resemble a wide yet it was given. In this way, it leveled out in the hand however the inquiry stayed on the consistency,” Chopra added.
