    Ban David Lloyd IMMEDIATELY

    Anyone listening to Sky Sports this morning would have heard David Lloyd say that England deserved a little "rebuke" for the Inzy dismissal.
    Here's a little snippet of action from the 1974/75 England Tour of Australia showing David Lloyd "catching" Ian Chappell. This was not only given out but was described by Wisden as a great catch in series notable for remarkable catches.

    Not out your honour

    Hahaha, I guess England has a long tradition of claiming dropped catches.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    That's a nice one, that is.

    I don't quite know what you're getting at, as I haven't seen that clip yet nor heard what he said, but Bumble's a deity. We should rebel against the current monarchy and set him up as the new king, not ban him.

    I like Bumble. He's my fav commentator on Sky now that Holding is currently in Australia.

    When he was talking about the donkeys he's seen in Pakistan for around 10 minutes I couldn't stop laughing.

    Are there copyright complications on that clip? I'm tending to think there may be.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He was at his 'best' when , after Afrid came in and made his intentions clear with a couple of big hit, " England should be happy with Afridi going for his shots" (or words to that effect hinting that this gave England their best chance of getting a wicket).

    Afridi kept it up and so did Lloyd till his fellow commentator intervened and said something like " In that case both England and Pakistan will be happy with this"

    In the last or the series previous to the last English tour of Pakistan bumble went to a ground near a test ground while a match was on and batted, bowled against local boys playing cricket.

    I also remmeber him in the West Indies plastic mini swimming pools outside the boundary ropes. He has actually done that at least twice. A picture of bumble looking at a girl with a look only bumble can manage in the pool is quite priceless. They showed it specially in a tour notifying the picture was from a past tour.

    Just few of the millions of legendary feats of bumble.

    Oh man, that clip is definitely in laugh out loud territory. What an absolute shocker.

    Haha, that's terrible. I fail to see how the umpire could give that out though, he must've had a pretty clear view (as did the batsman).

    Earlier there were a lot of crap decisions. The standards of umpiring has improved over the years but because of technology umpires come under scrutiny much more.

    Alan Knott must have had a better view then all of them...
    So THAT was your mystery ball?
