****s getting you run out because they're too thick to respond to your calls is pretty shocking too
I imagine being stumped off a wide would be pretty embarrassing.
A former teammate had a tendency to get bowled when he left the ball. Did it at a crucial juncture of a final.
In a muck around school game, I was dismissed for a pair having only faced 1 ball, and not being out. First ball of the game was one of the non-striker run-outs - despite me never leaving the crease, and the next ball I faced resulted in me depositing a beamer into the hands of mid on.
Being stumped off a fast bowler isn't fun.
I hate it when i miss a inswinging ball and it goes on to hit the stumps from bwteen my bat and pads
"Yes, No, Wait, Oh ****, sorry............that'll teach you not to flirt with my girlfriend you prick...."
I'd like to imagine in cricketing heaven that Hughes has already found Archie Jackson and they're sitting, smiling and discussing what might've been, and also discussing how fickle both batting and life can be. Maybe Trumper sits close by, nodding.
My worst was chopping down on a yorker first ball of the match, playing it into my foot and having it bounce back onto the stumps. Bastard of a way to get out.
