Cataloguing all Zing Bail fails

NUFAN

Y no Afghanistan flag
Roy just did a good segment on this. He weighed a normal wooden bail which was 22 grams. The zing bail is 45g - double!!

They should check the stumps as well. The hollowish plastic ones probably absorb shock better.

Lol was that another zing bail fail? Didnt matter since buttler was in I suppose, but the throw hit the stumps and the bails didnt fall off
Someone update the zing bail thread
and today's effort


14.6 T Sangha to Russell, no run
how did the bails not come off?! Flighted full on middle, Russell slogs this off an inside edge that caroms off his inside foot and then back onto the stumps. Not just a small trickle either. A full on genuine thud into middle and off stump. The heavy zing bails don't want to move. Traditional wooden ones would have definitely been dislodged.

Whatever it takes!!!
Henry Nicholls was bowled by Ashwin but the zinger bails did not dislodge. You can add that here. From the 2nd test at Mumbai just a week or so ago.

2nd Test India vs NZ, Over 31.5:

Ashwin to Nicholls, no run
Oh my, he's done it again, but with a slightly different angle this time. A bit closer to the stumps and once again lands and spins past the outside edge. Very close to both bat and off-stump, not touching either

Replays showed that the ball had actually brushed the stumps. The bails moved, but didn't fall. Unlucky for Ashwin, lucky for Nicholls.

This one was in the ashes test, England first innings where buttler almost ran himself, can someone find video? It's not even on the text commentary, but I swear it happened. Buttler was already in so no one focused on the bail not falling off.

Goswami to Sciver, no run
Sciver is smiling and nodding - the ball has rolled back onto the stumps but the bails stay intact. What luck for her after that dismissal in the last game. Full on middle, Sciver drives, the ball rolls off the pad and onto the stumps, surprisingly the bails don't fall and that's a lucky escape for Sciver. The Indians can't quite believe it

Look at this. Full ball, yorker goes through the defense of David and flicks the off stump but the bails did not come off amazing

Here's another one:

Rashid Khan to Maxwell, 4 byes
The ball hits the stumps but the bails don't come off! Googly landing on off spins past Maxwell's slog sweep first ball. Rashid sees one of the zing bails on leg stump light up and runs off with his right arm and index finger raised in celebration before realizing that the bails have not completely dislodged as the ball goes to the fine leg rope for four byes.
