****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 shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people - to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think it’s the effect or vice versa.”
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.
