    Your funniest wicket...

    Mine was a Leg-break to a right hander bowling round the wicket. It pitched infront of his toes, he swang for it, wacked his toe, and fell over while the bowl dislodged the bails.

    So not only was it great delivery it but it caused the batsman to create a whole new cricket shot...the "swang"

    Perhaps when I was bowling to this guy who plays club cricket, opens the batting, gets runs, builds innings etc and I decided to differ away from my usual off spin, and decided to Bowl him a couple of 'Drifters'. A term I made up myself, meaning that you have all the actions of a pace bowler, but when you release it, it comes out slow, hangs in the air, and goes on to bounce indifferently.... He tried to play one of my drifters, but edged it straight to the keeper. Funny because this guy who had faced Derbyshires finest club players, bowling at up to 70mph, could not handle a 20mp drifter... and the celebrationw as awesome..... Giving high tens to everyone shouting "Montyyyy!"

    A totally inept left-hander edging a short one onto his helmet and getting caught at second slip after playing and missing 400 times (this may be an exaggeration).

    My funniest Wicket was my first proper cricket ball wicket. I bowled the batter but it bounced twice and it still counted. Well it was the umpire's decison
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Played a game of BC in the dark at my Mum's last week. There was a little bit of light, but not much, you could barely see the stumps from the bowler's end. So, being the fine sportsman I am, I bowled a bouncer with what I think was my third ball. My brother was batting, he's thirteen. He ducked the bouncer, and then he turned to see his bails on the ground. I couldn't quite work out how I'd bowled him. I thought about it a bit more the next day and I reckon it must have hit the fence behind him and bounced back on. Awesome

    Not true. If it bounces three or more times, it is a no ball.
