    Battle 1

    Lewis & Read

    Read's the archetypal "kid in his dad's kit playing with the big boys" dismissal. His career never quite recovered either.

    ---

    Battle 2

    Bad Handling & Inzy

    Haddin to go a long way. Inzy belies his bulk to muster the grace of an eight ton walrus.

    Hard on Clarke's, which is somewhere pretty high on the hilarity scale, but if you're gonna miss a straight it's better it's done with 150+ up.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Time's up. Read (11) sails through, with Prince (6) joining him though not without a challenge from Lewis (4). Gooch (1) never in it, really.

    In the other, Haddin also does the expected clean-sweep with 11, with Inzamam's 7 being more than enough to earn him a spot in the second round, despite a late surge from Clarke (3). Hollioake (1) also misses.

    ---

    Battle 3

    An all-Australian affair, this one, with a fairly famous mix of comedy, stupidity and deception.

    Michael Clarke, Aus vs Eng, 2nd Test 2005 @ Edgbaston, 2nd innings. If last round had the funniest slower-ball dismissal ever, this one has a claim to being the most famous.

    Shane Warne, Aus vs NZ, 3rd Test 2001 @ Perth, 2nd innings. Warnie, Warnie, Warnie. All you had to do was push the ball into a gap (even if it was a no ball).

    Damien Martyn, Aus vs SA, 2nd Test 1994 @ Sydney, 2nd innings. Getting caught pushing one loosely to cover is always bad, but to do it seven runs shy of victory with only two wickets in hand is particularly egregious.

    Shane Watson, Aus vs SA, 2nd Test 2011 @ Jo'burg, 2nd innings. Leaving early on in your innings and the team innings is a good thing. Leaving one heading straight for off-stump 2nd ball of the innings, not so much.

    ---

    Battle 4

    We have our first double, with the oft-nominated Ian Bell represented twice in this battle against what could only be described as rank carelessness.

    Carl Hooper, Aus vs WI, 2nd Test 1992 @ MCG, 2nd innings. This one is really made by Riche's commentary (1:05), pointing out that indeed Warne wouldn't mind Hooper trying to bang one over the top. Oh Carl...

    Ian Bell, Eng vs Pak, 3rd Test 2012 @ Dubai, 2nd innings. It's kind of difficult to put into words how bad this was - much better to go back and read the astonished and outraged reactions to one of the most pathetic attempts at a cut shot in history.

    Ian Bell, Eng vs Ind, 1st Test 2012 @ Ahmedabad, 1st innings. We should be thankful, really, because this is the dismissal that inspired this competition. When all context is taken to account, it really is difficult to imagine a worse way to play your first delivery.

    Mark Waugh, Aus vs SL, 2nd Test 1995 @ MCG, 1st innings. No shame in being done by Murali I guess but deflecting a ball off an open face onto your stumps from outside leg is quite an "achievement".

    Clarke's was more about the bowler than the batsman, IMO.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Still maintain that Harmison deserves full credit for that slower ball... Clarke was just completely fooled by the loop and the unexpected nature of the ball... no one saw that coming
