    Yes, we know, it was a horror-story. Not entirely certain it needs a new thread. In fact, there very possibly might be one already - maybe even five or six - back somewhere through the history of the forum.

    Interestingly, there have actually only ever been 3 previous passing mentions of Boswell's name on CW, all over no more than a couple of posts.

    Didn't Andrew Penn bowl a shocking over once?

    And Tuffey as well at Eden Park?

    Boswell actually had a fair time of it prior to that humiliation. In the semi-final against Lancashire, he picked up Atherton, Flintoff, Fairbrother and Lloyd in a ten-over spell which cost just 44. In the final, a medley of the occasion, nervous tension, clammy palms and those inexplicable scourges called "the yips" did for him. He played only one more match for Leicestershire, crying off after a single over (which yielded eighteen runs) before losing his burgeoning contract and becoming a teacher.

    No, the over I was thinking about was in an ODI match, the first over of the match. This is when Tuffey was in a controversy over a video tape and he just appeared to lose it.

    I recall that over for 18, very well. It was possibly an even worse effort than the 2-24-0.

    TBH, never rated Boswell, at all, and was very surprised when he managed that 10-44-4 in the semi.

    Well UIMM, Tuffey didn't play for 2 years after said affaire. So not sure it was directly linked to it.

    He did, trust me. It was in an 5 match ODI series between NZ-Aust. in about 2005 (just before the chappell-hadlee series started). If I can be bothered later, I will dig up the scorecard.

    Said NZ-Aus series was in February 2005. Said sexual encounter was in March. And Tuffey didn't play again until February 2007.
