    Is this CricketWeb's greatest poster in the short history of the forum?

    Pre-dropping, Clarke used to seemingly deliberately hit dickloads of stuff at catchable height through covers etc. Much more unforgivable than the Harmison one.

    He was beaten by the loop. Good surprise slower ball, imo

    Well, I wouldn't have been happy for an English player to have got out playing that shot with stumps beckoning given the match situation at the time, but whatevs.

    I think the credit on that needs to go to Harmison. Was completely done over by a ball he didn't expect, adjusted to it late and tried to do the first thing that came into his mind given it was on leg stump before pitching and knocking into off/middle. Smart bowling and even better to execute it.

    Amazingly I can't think of any NZ shots off the top of my head.

    i just remembered H. Jayawardene played a really stupid innings that ended with him slog sweeping lyon to deep midwicket moments before the end of a session once
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Yeah exactly and people (you, Brumby****) too quickly forget that Harmi had delivered an absolutely brilliant over to lead up to that ball. Smacked Clarke's splice a few times with some 90mph+ nastiness immediately before that ball in what was a pretty intense atmosphere. Clarke was pretty rattled and after what came before it, I would have defied anyone not named Bradman to have thought a slower-ball was a possibility. Was an epic moment in the match and one of the few times you could say for sure that Harmi genuinely out-thought someone.

    It was a nice bit of bowling from Harmy, but if Clarke's playing straight he's not yorked. & match situation, last ball of day, etc, etc...

    Any road tho, it seems iniquitous to me that a lot of posters have jumped on Tait's dismissal at Trent Bridge (a #11, after all) and a proper batsman gets a free pass.

    Yup, that's the one. Ultimately that was the dismissal that brought about the premature end of his test career. I know he played a few more tests, but Gooch didn't trust him any more.

    could make a video of all Slater's 90's in test cricket, some truly woeful dismissals.

    In terms of hilarious dismissals, Warne getting stumped off Giles in one of the 2005 Tests where Warne ran down the wicket to smash the ball out of the ground and got nowhere near it was pretty funny.
