    Strange, Funny, Bizzare !!

    I am going to start posting the strange and bizzare cricket incidents from my library. This is not for debate please. Only to have some fun and share with others any such instances we may have read about.

    Here is the first :

    A master at Wellington College Prep School, Eagle House, Richard Parsons was umpiring in a match where the schoolboys under his charge were bowled out for a mere ONE RUN by a rival school.

    Embarrased rather than irritated, he said to his opposite number between innings, "I'm sorry not to have given your boys much practice. I assure you my chaps are capable of doing better than this."

    They did. They bowled the entire opposition out for NOUGHT

    BIzzare Number 2.

    Her's another.

    In 1989, Dr ME Pavri, the captain of Parsis, who later appeared once for Middlesex, decided in advance that team mates would be superfluous.

    He singlehandedly took on an eleven from Matheran (about 120 kms from Bombay) and scored 52 not out. It was agreed that the home team would not be allowed byes or leg byes.

    He then proceeded to dismiss them, without the help of any fielders for 38 !!

    I have partici[pated in a senior division league match in Delhi in the early 80's (this league being next only to Ranji Trophy or first class cricket). We scored 243 runs in the 40 over match at Firoze Shah Kotla Delhi and then bowled out the opposition (Central Secratariat, Delhi) for 3 runs !! This is the lowest score by any side in this level of cricket anywhere in the world and has been recognised as such.

    The opening batsman of Central Sec. carried his bat through the innings for 2 not out !!

    I was the captain of the winning side , Telefunken Cricket Club Delhi in this match.

    PS I also believe that a score of 81 times that of the opponents must be a record too

    Yes. Both the bizzare incidents are quoted from the same book. The last one is from personal experience but then it isnt that bizzare.

    I remember quitting my Junior team (due to a ******* coach), and the following week they were all out for 12.

    Hehehe!

    Bizzare #3

    Bizzare #3

    Strange Venue ::

    In 1838 a match was played on ice at Harewood, Yorkshire, against Stank. The home side scored 486 and the latter replied with 212 for 4.

    The high scoreing suggests problems of mobility as does one batsman's (Barrett) scoring 13 runs with one hit !

    Why it ended in a draw ? Perhaps the ice melted
    Lesson: On ice always bat first

    Inzzi please note.

    Bizzare #4

    Strange Venues ...continued :

    A match at the South Pole in 1969, had the former Kiwi captain, John Reid hitting a six into the snow and the ball(the only one available) vanishing

    The wicket was the Pole itself which at that time was represented by a striped barber's type pole with a silvered reflecting glass ball on top.

    The unique feature of the match was that whichever direction the ball was hit, it travelled northwards

    Harbhajans chopper-wacks become predictable !!
