when a batsman is taking a run , it is his duty to avoid the bowler not the other way round.
But Lille had also a brash presonalty. He starred in another famous incident with richards whre he hit richards chest with a bouncer. richards almost fell down and could not breath for some time, lillee didnt even look back. crowd was chanting kill kill!! and that shook up richards, next ball he faced was another bouncer and richards hit that out of the ground.
