#4 Mankad-ing

Vinod Mankad was an Indian cricketer who came up with a deceptive technique to dismiss the non striker in a test series against Australia in 1947/48.

As soon as he realised that the non striker was out of his crease he would struck the bails out and the batsman had to leave.

However, it may sound a bit nasty but according to the rules of cricket, the non striking batsman should be inside the crease before the ball has been delivered. If found out of the crease, it's legitimate to struck the bails off and the non striker would be sent off.
