Chaos is not a term often associated with cricket. But, sometimes, there’s no other word to describe what happens when a runner is employed. The runner is used when one of the batsmen on the field is injured, and can bat but can’t run. He’s therefore allowed to have a runner, who stands about twenty yards behind his back on a parallel pitch, and when the injured batman hits the ball, the runner runs up and down that pitch. Naturally, this can cause huge amounts of confusion, among the fielders as well as the three batsmen on the field, as the video below shows.
