    Worst dismissals (finishing) on 99

    In light of Shaun Marsh getting run out at the MCG, what are memorable dismissals on 99 that you can recall?

    My "favourite" (felt dreadfully sorry for him) was Dipak Patel getting run out by Derek Pringle going for the 3rd.

    Another that I recall was Alex Tudor's 99 not out when Graham Thorpe selfishly denied him a century

    Athers slipping and falling on his arse in the middle of the track on the 3rd to take him to his ton

    Marto sledging Neil McKenzie and then running him out was the best.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    I was at Lord's that day and have never laughed harder. It was forever his high score at HQ. Wasn't Mark Waugh out for 99 in the previous Test?

    EDIT: In the same Test as it happens. Bowled by Tuffers. I don't recall the dismissal, but I do recall some Aussie fans at Lord's saying that Athers' run out was payback for Waugh's dismissal.

    Think it was the same test actually. Taylor, Slater and Boon all got tons, Waugh got bowled for 99, prompting the immortal headline "Waugh Fails" in the British press next day.

    Warne's was amusing as you just knew he probably wouldn't go close to a century again.

    Vettori actually bowled a no-ball (overstepped) on the delivery that dismissed him as well (although Warne should have been out when the umpire missed a nick)

    Warne's 90 odd in the 05 Ashes series was such a good knock. Fmd he was a one man army that series.

    Jayasuriya once ran into Sangakkara at the non strikers end in his hurry to get to 100. Was beautifully hilarious.

    Dipak Patel run out attempting a 3rd run to an aging Derek Pringle (who couldn't throw) in the outfield, who just happened to bowl back the perfect return. 1992 IIRC.

    Edit: Sorry, was already mentioned in the OP

    I remember reading a book by Taylor or Slater recalling Waugh receiving the docket for a bet for the entire Aussie top 4 to tonne which up would've net the punter IIRC $10,000 for a $10 bet (could be higher or a different ratio).

    Five years into his test career Graham Gooch still hadn't scored a test hundred and ran himself out going for that elusive final run. Apparently Ian Chappell asked Gooch if he didn't like scoring hundreds as he left the field.

    As mentioned above, Dipak Patel was heartbreakingly run out going for a third run of Derek Pringle's arm. I'm pretty sure from memory that Pringle, who had been bowling the ball back, actually fired the return in with a regular throw to run him out.

    Also, in that match John Wright battled away to save the game only to charge Tufnell on 99 and get stumped. That triggered a shocking collapse and NZ lost the test. That was Wright's second test 99. I think he got a 98 as well.

    Not a 99, but a tailender's equivalent thereof: I seem to recall Monty getting run out with Steve Harmison on 49*, denying the big lad his only test 50.

    He wasn't dismissed but it would have felt as bad if not worse.

    Shaun Pollock being left stranded on 99 when Makhaya Ntini basically said here is my wicket to the Sri Lankans at Centurion with a lobbed catch to mid-off when he just needed to survive.
