I've been seeing this since launch so not sure its a patch thing, at least on my end. Perhaps they bumped up the frequency for doing it.Interesting one after the latest patch. The AI will happily just drop the ball at their feet with a defensive shot and sprint a single.
The bowler is completely uninterested in trying to stop it. They amble over, do a slow pick up animation, stand still then throw to the keeper long after the run has been completed. Unless you have a close catcher in short mid-wicket/short cover don't try to come in and stop it either.
The AI has done it to me about 10-15 times now over two sessions. No way to stop it apart from slot a silly mid-off or similar into the set up.
Here are 2 examples:
Not sure if I'm willing to call it a bug. I mean, you can do this IRL, it is possible, but it all feels a bit cheap if my fielders are just going to let it happen without really trying to do anything. If it happened all the time, a close catcher in real cricket would be a must, but isn't. Idk, a bit odd all round.
