    The Video Clips and Multimedia Thread

    There have been many moments in cricket that you wish you could replay on demand.....those amazing balls, that great innings, those stunning shots, those Jontey-esque catches and many others. So I propose we start a thread where members can post video clips, compilations etc. of anything to do with cricket. To set the ball rolling, I've begun with a yorker theme and posted links to four stunning yorkers bowled by Waqar, Shoaib and Holding. And just as the cherry on top, there's also a link to the fastest delivery I have EVER seen on TV....

    Waqar Younis yorking Brian Lara

    Waqar Younis yorking Graeme Hick

    Shoaib Akhtar yorking Stephen Fleming

    Michael Holding yorking Tony Greig

    and finally the FASTEST LOOKING DELIVERY I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!!

    Just to note, these links expire after a while, so the files may have to be uploaded again by other members on Yousendit.com

    Not sure if this thread will necessarily be closed, but if you want it to stay open it's important you make sure all the clips are legal and freely available. Small clips are often fine, but obviously videos of whole matches, rips of released DVDs etc aren't, so be careful.

    That's a fair point, but these kind of threads work very well in soccer forums that I visit on the back of forum members own contributions (self-made compilations etc.), so I don't see it being much of a problem hopefully.

    Yeah, even though the speedo is only at 148kph, I still don't think I have seen a FASTER LOOKING delivery than that.
    Beneath that helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside that cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their lives - BBC on Sachin Tendulkar

    Haven't found any yet - at the moment I'm just using Yahoo's video search feature to come up with clips, so I suspect someone somewhere will have something on him.....especially that Yorker to Gilchrist..WOW!!

    A bouncer will always be clocked slower than a fuller ball. It was pretty fast. I thought they were all wonderful balls. its a crying shame we'll never know how fast Holding really was, i reckon he'd be alot faster than Aktar and Lee but we'll never know
    The Hick one didnt see to do anything but be full and fast...story of why Hick had so much promise but failed to really do it vs the pace bowlers at international level
    The best one has to be the Lara one, you just arent gonna keep those out as a left hander, outstanding.

    Some of this could well be legal but I'm not willing to take that risk.
