New Delhi: Since the inception of the Indian Premier League in 2008, fans have been treated to some great cricketing action.

Like superb bowling and bowling performances, innovation too is a big part of the cash-rich league.

Too succeed in the T20, players from all over the world have been seen adopting new techniques and methods to gain the upper hand over the opposition.

One such instance was witnessed in the IPL when Rajasthan Royals played Kolkata Knight Riders.

The incident took place in the 18th over, with Shane Watson on strike. During the 3rd ball of the over, Andre Russel slowed down his run-up as he reached the umpire and looked like he wasn't going to deliver the ball.

Looking at the reduction in the all-rounder's speed, Watson eased his stance assuming the same.

However, Russell suddenly went on to complete the ball. The Aussie had no option but to shoulder arms. 

Watto was infuriated with the right-armer's antics and went on the complain to the umpire.

But with Russell slowing down his run-up behind the umpire, there was no way he could have ruled the ball dead or illegal.
