During this Q&A one user tweeted a photo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowling a bizarre ball to Finch during the third and final ODI of India's tour of Australia on January 18 last year. It was bowled from way behind the crease, even behind the umpire, who called it a dead ball as he couldn’t see the bowler delivering the ball.

It was the final delivery of the ninth over, Bhuvneshwar bowled a short ball from behind the pitch and a bewildered Finch moved away. Reacting to the fan’s photo of Bhuvneshwar’s delivery, Finch tweeted,” I had no idea what to do...shouldn't have pulled away, I got out next ball...last ball of the over.”

Bhuvneshwar had to bowl the final ball again, this time trapping Finch LBW with a beautiful inswinger. India went onto beat the Australians by seven wickets and pocketed the series 3-0.
