MikeIndex - As you know, dictionaries shift with usage. Although I personally never use 'disinterested,' to mean not being interested in something, as distinct from having a stake in it, if you look in the majority of modern dictionaries, you will find that, these days, disinterested is held to mean either lacking interest, or not having a personal stake in an outcome. Most come with a note about disputed usage but, nevertheless, there it is - for example:


As to our batting display, my reading of it was that they thought the track was such a belter (and I think they were right) that they thought they'd need a huge total and so judgement of which ball to take on and with which shot, pretty much went out of the window.
