    Most Extraordinary thing to happen in cricket?

    No prizes for guessing what will happen in this thread

    inspired by todays events, is this the most extraordinarything to happen in cricket as some people are calling it? Whats your opinion on the most extraordinary thing to ahppen in cricket? It can be farcical (Like today) or a display of cricketing history that goes beyond belief (South Africa/Australia, the wanderers)
    This Weeks Samit Patel Fact - Has been mentioned in 32 of my posts

    IMO Bodyline would the most extaordinary thing to happen to cricket, however my personal favourite was when Miandad was going to clobber Dennis Lillee with his bat

    ^LOL That's such a great pic!

    What I've seen in my life, it'd have to be Cronje. What I've read about. Lillee/Miandad sounds like it'd be right up there alongside Bodyline and World Series Cricket.

    Colin Croft physically assaulting the New Zealand umpire on the West Indies tour of Australasia in 1979/80. In the same series the West Indies also had a sit-in after tea and Michael Holding kicked the batsman's stumps out of the ground when an appeal was refused.

    Didn't Inzi take umbrage at being described as a mota aaloo (fat potato I'm lead to believe) by Indian fans in Canada & set off to brain the culprit with his bat?

    Adds new meaning to the phrase "Going for an Indian".
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
