Sachin attempt to run as the bowler runs in (ball is live once he commences his run up). Ganguly would need to cross, and bowler would affect the run out at the bowlers end, so Ganguly is out and ball is not counted.

Now Sachin on strike on 99 and one ball remaining and he made a six :)

The batsmen can never cross in such an attempt.
Law 42.16: Batsmen stealing a run
It is unfair for the batsmen to attempt to steal a run during the bowler’s run up. Unless the bowler attempts to run out either batsman – see 15 above and Law 24.4 (Bowler throwing towards striker’s end before delivery) – the umpire shall
(i) call and signal Dead ball as soon as the batsmen cross in such an attempt.
(ii) inform the other umpire of the reason for this action.
(iii) return the batsmen to their original ends.
(iv) award 5 penalty runs to the fielding side.
(v) inform the batsmen, the captain of the fielding side and, as soon as practicable, the captain of the batting side, of the reason for this action.
(vi) together with the other umpire report the occurrence as soon as possible after the match to the Executive of the batting side and to any Governing Body responsible for the match, who shall take such action as is considered appropriate against the captain and players concerned.

Jatin and his friend Pawan had very famous challenge sessions at their school. One would suggest something they could do, and the other would prove it wrong somehow.

One day, Jatin surprised Pawan by stating: "I can answer any question in the world."

Sure that he would win the challenge, Pawan accepted the task of proving it wrong. He wrote up a test full of impossible questions. After a while, Jatin returned the test. Pawan unbelievably lost the challenge and told Jatin he could indeed answer any question.

How did Jatin win?
