    I would debate the possibility of the 9 slips thing and would argue that there are a couple or a few gullies

    I'm not sure who that one is against but I know Austrlaia have done it against Zimbabwe in an ODI

    I think the top picture was taken on an Australian tour of NZ in the 70s. The bowler is DK, and I think Greg Chappell let him do it for a cover shot for a book they were putting out, or something like that.

    As others pointed out, that's DKL. One of my favorite pictures.

    It is an amazing thing. The opposition Zim captain fumed though. Well, Steve Waugh had confidence in his bowling, hence he had 9 players in slips. What is the big deal there!?

    Doesn't it have to be in front of behind the line of the slips to be considered a gully?

    just wondering, how long did the OZ keep that field for

    many batsman would not mind such a field .... the bowler's line becomes predictable and it's always feels nice to hit one on the leg-side [by shuffling across] and make those guys from the slips run to the other end .... and from that pic, one can tell that the batsman is hitting one down the ground

    Mutendera only scored 10, but he lasted 23 balls. However, Fleming (who was bowling and had bowled magnificently) only bowled 3 balls at him as his allocation (he took 10-15-3) was almost up.

    I don't imagine Waugh set that field to any bowler other than Fleming.

    This is a number-eleven batsman, he was hopeless. That drive was a play-and-miss too BTW.

    Noticeable that the slippers seem serious enough with their hands held in a variety of anticipatory stances, that this could not be considered a photo stunt.

    I very much doubt that, if it can happen in the Fleming-Mutendera case, it can happen again to some other.
