Hasn't the rule changed for grounding the bat with run outs as well?

if you ground the bat,or your person, beyond the crease and it subsequently bounces up you are now ok. previously you could be out if nothing was grounded.

Is this at the exact moment the bails are dislodged? So the moment the bails are dislodged is it ok for your bat to be in the air if it had previously been grounded in the crease? Amazing how many ex players didnt know the rule previously. Tended to be Aussies on co commentary. I've seen Brett Lee, Mark Taylor and Mark Waugh get it wrong. Now they would be right!

Yes, I believe the way the poster above describes this is correct.

Good change in my opinion: a bat bouncing up is pure bad luck and almost uncontrollable, it shouldn't result in dismissal when the batsman has made his ground.

So we've had heavy bats, metal bats and now bouncing bats. I suspect I am not alone in hoping to see a few more straight bats from our players next season.
Incidentally, the law change refers also to players' bodies. It would be interesting to see Imzamam, for example, plunging full length for his crease and then 'bouncing up'.

Gap in the market for telescopic bats that you can lengthen when a few feet short of making your crease. Bit like in snooker when they add an extension on to their cue.

I do think the 'run out law' change is sensible. Once you've made your ground you are in. Its like a batman putting his foot down over the line then being given out because both his feet are off the ground
