    Only a slimy git would ever bowl a grass grubber. I think his name was Chappell.

    Trevor Chappel bowled an under arm (yucky title for a delivery) to the last man I think, when the chasing team needed 6 of the last ball or something like that. Pretty lame.

    Never knew its called the ground grubber.

    Was never sure which Chappell it was, but I've just got the definitive answer from StatsGuru (someone had already asked it).

    http://www.cricket.org/link_to_datab...2/ODI_GEN.html

    Note : whereas my link to their site and the Q/A works, theirs to the database doesn't. Copy the whole link as is on their site, paste into your 'Address' box on IE/Netscape/Konqueror then delete the space after the hyphen and before the 81 - it works then.

    Hi,Roy. Good to have you along.

    He bowled it to a kiwi. it was against nz. wouldn't expect anything else from aussies... bunch of ex convicts.... jk

    there was an ad for instant kiwi (scratch and win tickets) where the batsmen put his box on the ground and the ball kicked up off it and he hammered it for six.

    anyway... the rule i usually play by is 3 bounces is a no ball.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    Nice first post, marto.

    Concise and to the point.

    Now if you could add in less than 5,000 words WHY they are the greatest team ever, you will go even higher in my estimation.

    As for actually posting your remark in the wrong thread, it's a shame that no-one else is likely to read it in the context it was intended.

    I agree with the belting theory, but a tickle down to fine leg couldn't go astray.
