    Yeah, he nearly took a hat-trick in a one day game bowling full tosses with it. Looked like it was going to be a beamer, but being a slower ball it would just drop and hit the batsman on the pads on the full. 'Twas against SL IIRC, Tillekeratne feeling particularly aggrieved at being given out.

    This is the game; think that the LBWs might be a bit dubious.

    I was going to mention the specific game but felt old just remembering it (and that it was over 10 years ago) so thanks for that.

    EDIT: Christ, how good the ball by Warnie to get Kalpage?

    Wonder if he copied that from Franklyn Stephenson too.
