Well, yeah, I never said the reward goes to the batsman directly. It goes to the side who gets hit due to a lack of skill or agility.The batsmen does not get the runs to their name so makes no sense.
The fielding side has conceded some runs as ball gone into a gap in the field placements.
The individual batsman gets no runs added to his own score.
The batting team gets runs added to the extras...
I don't think my position is that unreasonable or lacking in sense. In my mind runs should be earned directly through the batsman or errors from the fielding side. Leg byes just don't fit into either of these categories.
I do understand it would complicate things though and if I was hit by a guy bowling 150km I'd certainly want leg byes too.
