We all know that custom has it, that if you are hit with the ball thrown by a fielder, whilst attempting a run, it is deemed against the spirit of the game to seek over throws. Well I call "Poppycock". I firmly believe that if you or your bat is struck by the ball, whilst attempting a run, then its a free for all and you run as many as you can. I think it was Finch that got hit last night in the Saffers game and did not call for the extra runs because "its not the thing to do". Now I'm not blaming Finch, 'cause imagine the backlash if he did. But I think that it is part of the "risk" that the fielder takes in having a ping at the stumps. If it ricochets and goes to the boundary then those additional runs count (just ask the Kiwis) (sorry @Kiwi Eagle You were robbed). I think that it should be either a dead ball or play on and run like mad!! Personally I think the latter.
