It was a fine display of power hits in an eight-run victory, but the attitude of the walkers as Stoinis arrived at Creese angered Adelaide.

To keep the game moving quickly, BBL rules stipulate that the next batter must be ready to face the bowler within 75 seconds of the last batter being ejected.

The batsman must stand on the side of the pitch and allow a free shot at the stumps if the bowler, in this case Wes Agger, is not ready to face the bowler at that time.

“He’s a top-class player, but to be honest, I was covering his first ball. I’m pretty sure he timed out,” Stoinis said of Stoinis.

“[He]had 75 seconds, but he wasn’t ready.

“So there was a bit of confusion with the referee.

“We were all charmed … I’m not quite sure what happened there.

“His time is certain.

“The umpire has been pretty keen on me for getting to Creese the last few games.

“It’s just one of them. Trent Boult threw a couple of great overs there and he (Stoinis) won the game with the bat, so he played well.

“By the time he got around the referee and asked the question, he was facing the first ball, but hopefully if that’s the rule he can play by it.”

Stoinis could be heard pleading his case to the umpire on air, saying fielders complained that they were ready to turn their faces while they were still moving.

Stoinis said he would not appeal in the same situation if he was on the field.

“I checked the center (the stump) and got there and saw the field moving so I stood there,” Stoinis said.

“But I didn’t even know I had to stand there anyway.”

According to Big Hitter, it wasn’t the first time.

“There were a few times when I was guarding and the fielders were moving and I was ready,” Stoinis said.

“My understanding is that while the field is in motion… I’m not going to stand there until I can see[what the final field setup will look like].

“Apparently, you should be facing up.

“There was a dead ball at Hiltz[Hilton Cartwright].

Stoinis said the new batter timeout rule requires a “common sense” approach.
