Yo Rob, you wouldn't happen to have this, would you?
Sample this masterpiece – Benaud was on air when Brian Lara was hit on the box during a Test match. Lara writhed in pain and discomfort, the physio and the reserves ran out with water and magic sprays and what have you, and the scarcely concealed guffaws and chuckles in the commentary box could be heard filtering through. Through it all, Benaud didn’t utter a word. Then, when the excitement died down and Lara was about to face the next delivery, Benaud quietly chipped in, “It’s the kind of injury where you hope the pain goes away but the swelling remains.” They are apparently still searching for the roof of that particular commentary box.
'cause in a clearing when the sunlight comes
exposing all the shadows in our intricate behaviour
i feel a sort of fading
we build our own unfolding.
oh i found it! would you believe on the highlights of the match ch 9 DELETED Richie's comment? Its weird, they took out ALL of richie commentary from the incident. Only left Gower's. Had to find the ball by ball footage to get richies comment, uploading soon.
should add, as i thought it was in a one dayer, not a test, the quote is close to what happened, but not quite. All will be revealed in 25 mins.
'umpire calls dead ball'

And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Rob, do you have highlights of this game?
7th Match: New Zealand v South Africa at Brisbane, Jan 9, 1998 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
Was one of my favorite games when I was growing up. The quintessential gallant NZ effort followed by heroic-heartbreaking failure epic.
EDIT: I see you have it! But the sound is out of sync. Have you got the Cairns innings that started the comeback?
