    Anyway, I said to the batsman and umpire "Watch this - more air than Qantas" and tossed this thing about 8-9 feet in the air. He ran down the deck, but there was a huge cross wind and it drifted away (completely by accident). He missed it and Burgeinho took an easy stumping. Another bloke tried to pull one and missed it - lbw, a third hit one straight to said deep mid wicket. Was pretty funny.

    I mean, we lost by ten wickets, but 3-14 off four is decent.
    story doesn't add up, if you lost by 10 wickets then your team didn't take any wickets

    It makes plenty of sense if we batted first, the wickets were taken in their first innings as they passed us before they declared overnight, we batted again and they passed us none down in the second dig.

    I still think they should do the 3 innings a side game that I suggested. 1 timeless Innings, one 50-over innings and 20-over innings. That would be great to watch.

    That would actually be very interesting as you'd have to go in with 5 bowlers. Good for Australia though with Smith scoring all his centuries in the first innings

    Charles Palmer of Leicestershire (he also played for England once in 1954) used to bowl a donkey drop which, according to some, he tossed up to 30 feet into the air. He got quite a few wickets with it dropping it on the stumps or persuading panicking batsmen to give a catch - it's so different from a beamer it's a shame it's now caught by the same law

    Reckon they should change the law so that a full toss over head height is not a no-ball if it drops enough to hit the stumps

    Personally I think the rule should be it's a noball for any delivery that crosses above the stumps without bouncing and not the batsman's waist at the popping crease. Would be easier to enforce too.

    Nah **** it. Worst rule ever was making waist high balls from spinners no balls. You want them to bowl you six waist high full tosses ffs.

    Nah that was pitching the ball as slow and as short as possible to trick the batsman into going onto the backfoot. I used to use Ganguly to do the dirty deed iirc.

    An old boy at our club plays one of two Sunday friendlies a year and bowls like this. He always takes wickets. The batsmen aren't great they try to smash it as hard as possible their bound to not middle it sooner or later.
    He doesn't run down the pitch and stand at silly mid on mind you

    Hey folk, forgot I posted this.
    Great replies from everyone thanks!!
    Regarding the rule on not running down the pitch past a certain point, could anyone enlighten me on where that is?

    Regarding getting tonked and being not the smartest to run to silly mid on - I play cricket for fun so those sort of things don't worry me as much as they probably should.
    Example: last game I opened with one pad (one has lost a strap) no helmet (haven't bothered getting used to having my vision restricted) and no shoes (forgot them) on a concrete pitch. I'd been told the opening bowler was quick, but he turned out to be ~10kph quicker than anything I'd ever faced

    Fun times. The love of the game is why I don't mind risking a broken hand or rib for a once in a lifetime catch off the worst bowling you see at silly mid off.

    Oh, and re the no ball above the waist rule applying to slow bowling now - when did that start? It slipped by me.

    That's not true afaik. If a waist high ball hish the stump it can't be ruled a no ball.

But I'm a crap batsman.

    I just haven't seen any good batsman in that scenario either.
    I'm pretty sure Darryl Cullinan was timed at 34 mph in the Test Match against England at Headingley in 1998. I was at that match and remember being amazed by the speed gun when Cullinan turned his arm over. Pretty much all his deliveries were timed at under 40 mph IIRC.
