hehe happens some times - iended up the last man for a mates team last year, was not supposed to be playing as had domestic commitments, just turned up to watch and batted ten...oppo were gutted when 66-8 became 202-9 at the end of 40!
Yeah, got asked to play for a mate's team in a Sunday friendly as they were short of bowlers. After removing the top 3 batsmen for 3 runs in the first three overs I bowled I got taken off and they were all out for 40 odd...

Not really village but going down the 'Ringer' route, my club dont have a great youth set-up so were short for the u15s most weeks, and last season if i was born one day later i would of been an u15 instead of an u16 so occasionally i would be dragged into playing for them and in the first game i got 77 off 35-40 balls including 14 4s and bowled 3 overs for 2 runs and the second game i played i got 68 off 40-45 balls and bowled 4 overs for 5 runs 1 wicket and i broke a kids nose cut his head open and broke his helmet all in one ball (i didnt feel as bad as he was my ages aswell), i was never asked to play again.

Nope we have played some dreadfully turned out teams lol! It was a draw. One of the hoodie guys had a good eye and smashed a century until a sharp stumping from none other than myself removed him..

It genuinely was a good stumping ;) - I usually try to make a wreck of the stumps for the imaginary cameras though :D

Another village moment I had was when I played for a team in Bristol in a friendly, in the 40th over batting first, I was poised on 103*, and one of the opposition fielders decided to field at what can only be described as Silly Point.... Cue the short wide long-hop and then the ambulance and trip to hospital for concussion.....

Haha, I once swept powerfully and instead of being caught by the man at square leg he broke his wrist!

Haha! Got to love being dropped, and when the fielder injurs themselves in the process it's just a bonus! :D

Reminds me of a Uni game where I middled one straight back at the bowler who was one of these Jimmy Anderson types who look down as they bowl - he didn't see it and it smashed him clean on the jaw!

When I was playing U-16's an opposition fielder threw the ball into the keeper, it flicked up off the edge of the astro-turf and straight into his eye. Massive black eye! He now plays for our team!

I'll work on it ;)

I broke 2 of a guy's fingers a couple of years ago, smashed the ball down the ground and he stupidly tried to stop it.. :(

I went to see our club U13 playing, and a bowler bowls the ball (remember it's a junior) and it goes straight through middle and leg stump. I was umpiring, and we checked afterwards and the senior stumps allowed a millimetre of space either side. A millimetre to the left or right would of bowled, but no.
