MS Dhoni can get penalised for fake fielding under ICC's new rule
Mahendra Singh Dhoni can get penalised for fake fielding under ICC's new rule if he tricks opponents by pretending to collect a throw and let it go on to hit the stumps opponents . The new Law 41.5 states that: "it is unfair for any fielder willfully to attempt, by word or action, to distract, deceive or obstruct either batsman after the striker has received the ball". If the umpires on the field determine that such deception is deliberate, they can award five penalty runs to the batting team.
