    I vaugely remember ages ago Dean Jones' stumps were hit by Curtly Ambrose and the bail actually lifted off the stump about a millimetre or two and landed back on the stumps and didn't fall over. That was something I'll probably never see again, does anyone else remember that, or was it a dream?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    There have been half a dozen (or more) incidents in the last couple of years in England matches of the ball clipping one of the stumps and the bails not coming off, including one where a bail jumped in the air.

    WoW! that's amazing! Did the bail come completely off the stump, do a turn and land back on the stumps?

    I can't remember to be honest. (Don't have visions of it doing backflips or anything - it would have been millimetres like the incident you mentioned above). I just remember it was somewhat unusual in the commonplace happening of balls hitting stumps and nothing happening. One player, I think, was given out caught off the stump which had a kind of poetic irony

    Tremlett's hattrick ball against Bangladesh. Ball hit the top of the bails and refused to fall off!

    Flintoff hitting Symonds off stump and the bails not coming off.

    All decisions made by Rudi Keortzen in the last test!

    vetorris is easily the most amazing ive seen, and to be honest, i dont think ill ever see anything like it again. for those who didnt see it, the bail jumped in the air, and then landed back on the stumps, with the fat - middle piece of the bail - resting on the leg stump

    Steve Waugh 4th Ashes Test MCG, on the replay clearly hit the ball, but at the time there was no appeal. England not appealing I still can't understand?
    You know it makes sense.

    It happens mate, its happened to me a few times, but I usually get out next ball, so its no biggie for the opposition.

    It didn't move off the bat, they didn't hear it, you can't blame them.

    If it had of been Gilchrist they might have got lucky and he might have walked.

    Yes I was at the G and didn't hear anything, I wonder if Gilly would have? They had no hope with SRW

    The keeper (Foster) realised it but pulled out of the appeal when nobody else went up.

    Happened in the South Africa ODIs recently too, Adam Bacher edged Gough through to Geraint but no one noticed until the replay showed a huge deflection - though it may have been a tactical masterplan to keep Bacher at the crease on the grounds that he was utterly useless...

    That's always a possiblity, although it would have been silly to use that tactic against Waugh, no matter how poor his form at the time.
