    Can you do me a favour - can you make a youtube clip or a mpeg or something of a couple of classic Jamie How forward defensive strokes? I wish to make a positive post about them and want to have some evidence...
    About how technically correct he is and how absolutely baffling it is that he never cracked it at the top level?

    It is not baffling to me - as I don't think he mastered all of the shots in the book. I also think his temperament wasn't quite right. I just rate his forward defence as you will note in my post I will make if Kippax is kind enough to provide me with some evidence.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Kippax a thousand thank yous. Can't believe how many times How got out to left handers.

    All those dismissals look so horrible - flashing at wide ones, chopping on, turning a hook into a convoluted way to get bowled, leaving big inswingers on middle and off..

    Apart from that freakish return run-out, though.

    Yeah he's not the greatest player going around. The one he left and it took out his off stump was vicious. With the left armers angle you should be able to leave those.

    When I play I leave anything that pitches on off stump from left arm over unless he has shown he can bring them back a long way.

    It was a very vicious ball.

    But he decided not to play it so late and tried to cover it, but his feet didn't get far enough across. Should have at least got pad to it and put some doubt in the umpire's mind, IMO. If I'm leaving a right armer angling across dramatically (being a left hander screws things up a bit), I make sure to completely cover off stump. There's a better chance of getting away with an LBW because of the angle.

    The LBW at 0:28 looked to pitch outside leg, in fairness.

    You're licking your lips if you're a left-arm seamer next summer...

    One other thought - if you're an umpire, and people aren't appealing with any sort of conviction...don't give it (as per the one v Otago, think it's Wells bowling and Phil Jones the umpire). Especially when you take ages. It looks awful.

    Also very easy for me (using the match filter function) to put up any video anyone wants on Youtube. One particular innings, a few minutes facing certain bowlers, all FC 2011/12 dismissals, etc.

    They can be unlisted too so the channel doesn't risk copping its first red lightsaber for vending dodgy meats under false pretences (in a Quik-E-Mart kind of way), but hell, worth remembering Jeets has made the grade.
    I think you and I are going to become very good friends, if we aren't already.

    Can I have Colin de Grandhomme dismissals, across all formats? If too hard, just FC will be fine. I need a laugh

    Colin de Grandhomme, 2011/12 Dismissals - YouTube

    631 runs at 70 in the Shield, remember. He's knocking on the door.

    Brilliant! Kippax, you are truly a hero. I'm actually playing golf with the great man today, I'll give him a look

    Bob Nicol, again feasting on the minnows. 133 v Holland for Gloucestershire. If NZ ever run into PNG or the likes in a World Cup, they're in huge trouble.

    Anyone with an August Skywatch that can tell me if there's any U19 WC games or highlights featuring? Starts on the 11th, final is on the 25th.

    I don't have august's skywatch. But did have another request.

    Could you possibly post some footage of Harry Boam bowling. I wish to study his action.
    Would also like some of him batting in an inning (not his dismissals)

    Doesn't appear to be any, could easily change though knowing how Sky is.

    I'd say with Olympics, ITM Cup etc there won't be space in the calender.
