    Nicking an opening bowler's outswinger to slip is just a bit too textbook for this afaic, though it does score maximum on the "match situation" part

    You could probably add in his dismissals in the 2nd innings at Lord's and the Oval in the "for **** sake, grow a spine and tough it out for 15 minutes" category.

    Bonus points for him being the captain as well. Had Dravid not basically been forced to slog when India were 8 down then I think he'd still be batting now.

    What about Dhoni in Mumbai where he sends one straight to Panesar who drops it. So he sends another one like two balls later. The situation was similar to Bells, I think?

    But his shot in that England series doesn't qualify for mine. That's just good bowling to a bad batsman.

    he missed it in the air and ended up trying to protect his head.. a video would be gold but theres no sign of it on youtube

    Yeah it does. He should have left the ****ing things alone instead of repeatedly driving balls that were begging to be nicked to the cordon. Particularly as he was the captain, particularly given the match situation at Trent Bridge, particularly as he'd done exactly the same thing at Lord's.

    Nah we're talking worst dismissal EVER, that's just pretty bog-standard rubbish.

    Dhoni's done it so many times as well. It's far from something out of the ordinary.

    Worse than Bell's given it was day five and India seemed a decent bet for a draw

    NB - Panesar didn't drop the first one because he stood and watched it drop, thinking Anderson was going to catch it

    Think it counts as a drop regardless of what the fielder tries to use to catch it, even if it's another fielder

    AB de Villiers got caught by a ball which bounced twice

    I've no idea how many times it happened in history. You might get out to a long hop or full toss but how on earth you get out to a delivery which pitches twice. It's weird and damn memorable. SA were in trouble in 1st Innings when 5th wicket went down for only 77. In came AB de Villiers and coasted to 45. Then Ashraful came to bowl his trademark long hops and full tosses but instead he sent one which bounced twice before reaching to the popping crease and de Villiers tried to crack it out of the park, looped it in the air and got caught. Ash was ecstatic as if he bowled that intentionally and de Villiers got puzzeled by the legality of the delivery. However he was given out and crowd erupted!

    Nah that's just Dhoni being not good enough against superior bowling. Certainly not worthy of the title. The Panesar incident was much worse.

    Agreed, not really sure where this is going, nicks to shots outside off-stump are pretty much a thing which happen, we're talking something incredible, aren't we?

    It's more the match situation I think GF is getting at, not so much the individual ball.
