Played reverse sweep to a ball pitched out the leg stump and umpire gave me out LBW.
I asked him why and he said since I used the reverse sweep, I am considered a left handed batsman.  :o
He did apologize after the match.

The oppo's captain today had watched last night's fight, and came to skipper his side with a grand total of 0 hours sleep!

He came in to say hello to our skipper, stumbling about and slurring his words!

He usually carries his bat and nurdles his way to 80/90. His first ball today, gets nowhere near the ball, hits his pad and goes to first slip. He then stumbles out of his crease and our first slip chucks it onto the stumps to run him out, leaving their umpire and entire team in absolute hysterics.

The most village part of this story is the fact that he stayed up all night to watch a carny sideshow.

Today in a T20 semi final, batting 3 walked down the wicket bowler dug it in, was still able to force it past mid off on the back foot. Non striker didnt move as I called for one. Arrived at the NS end and thought, walk off or make an attempt to make my ground? Chose the latter, mid off got so excited he launched a throw at the keeper that went for 4 over throws.

Just after the drinks break, opposing batsman walks to the crease, takes his roll up out of his mouth and asks if "any of you fellas want half a cigarette..."

Even the smokers said no  :D

In Saturday's game an opposition player was chasing the ball down to the boundary and then went to flick it back to his mate but somehow managed to hold on to it too long and threw it over his head for 4!! Stupid thing was I am sure the ball had stopped short of the boundary!

Played saturday and a left hander comes out with a cji fatso, which we questioned the legality of anyway... hits his first ball for 4 over the bowler "Just to let you know, that's the first ball I've faced in a year!"  So I said from square leg "Yeah don't let it get to your head mate..."   caught at gully the next ball!!!!

The umpire is right. Not sure why he apologised though.

A young punk and an older guy open the batting. Our young quick peppers the younger guy for a maiden first up. As I'm jogging through between the overs, i check out the gloves of the older guy, seeing the chunky pad on his left thumb, i call out 'left hander boys'...

I take another step before the batsmen replies, 'Mate, what's with that $hit? I'm a righty.'
A bit confused, I replied 'You've got left handed gloves on champ.'

Him, looking even more confused, starts to say no i don't as he puts his hands onto his bat and sees, that, as i had indicated, the padding was on the wrong thumb.

'Aye! I do too. That's pretty observant of you aye.'

The sad part... He could actually bat a bit. The world is cruel at times.
