    Great Batsmen Getting the Wicket of Other Great Batsmen with the ball

    Don't hate me. I just felt like talking about this.

    Off the top of my head, I remember Sachin getting Lara out thrice. Once in the Hero Cup (bowled), once caught out while Windies were chasing (and Lara was really struggling for rhythm), and once stumped as Lara came dancing out of the crease and Sachin bowled it wide. All ODIs.

    And there is the famous one of Bradman getting Hammond off of a full toss. I am sure Hammond got Bradman a few times, if not in Tests, then definitely on the tour games.

    Hoping to get some unexpected stories here !
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Mark Richardson got Mohammad Yousuf (Yousuf Youhana). Then did a lap of the pitch in celebration.

    Zoe Goss got Brian Lara.

    I guess Viv must have got a few decent ones over the years. Steve Waugh probably lots too.

    I think we can ignore Sobers and Kallis for this one. Otherwise it is their orgy

    Jeetan Patel getting Shiv Chanderpaul with a rank full toss comes to mind.

    Ponting…

    Jimmy Adams
    Michael Vaughan
    Brian Lara



    In a weaker/different team Ponting probably would've bowled a fair bit more and might've taken 50 or so test wickets. Always looked dangerous, and should've bowled a few more 5 over spells.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    That solves the question of what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    David Gower's solitary test wicket was Kapil Dev, who was a great all-rounder, if not quite a great batsman.
    6th Test: India v England at Kanpur, Jan 30-Feb 4, 1982 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo


    And here is proof that Mike Atherton dismissed Vengsarkar, who's track record in England had been absolutely stellar.
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/63536.html
    I think his only other test wicket was Wasim Akram, who could also bat a bit when the mood took him.



    Here is Gooch removing Gavaskar
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/63238.html
    He actually took 23 test wickets, so there might be some other notables in there for anyone who can be bothered to look.


    Geoff Boycott bowling Graeme Pollock
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62959.html
    He dismissed Eddie Barlow later in that series too.


    Does KP dismissing Michael Clarke in the 2010/11 Ashes count? I think it was in the 2nd test, just before close of play when Aus were staging some sort of a recovery.

    Lala Amarnath (while not a great batsman) did score India's first Test century and was the only player to dismiss Bradman hit-wicket.
