Yeah massive chucker apparently

Edit: just paid more attention and am I right in thinking this bloke featured in the forum SW XI vs Kilve game recently? Poles rolled for not many by @Neon Cricket iirc? @t2ylo

Not always in that order

Well deserved for being a berk and good they clarified which player it was not. That poor bloke prob has a thousand Facebook messages asking why he did it!!

I didn't even know you could throw it for '6' as a bowler. It's six wides presumably..

My lad was watching, it was their second team playing at home,
He said the lad ran in to bowl and just threw it straight over the keeper for a one bounce four!

You cant. A six can only be scored off the bat.

Ah yes I figured that after I posted !

Never seen that in any cricket in 35 years.

Still...we all do things we regret. I suspect this guy is regretting it big time. It has been hot on the field for the last 6 weeks, players can do some crazy things  :)

Bloody hell, bet he wishes he just bowled a few wides...

Had my first game of Last Man Stands tonight, good craic! Decent game we won with 1 ball to spare, nabbed myself a wicket and brought up the 50rtd with a scoop to third man - happy edge. Not too convinced astro pitches are the future, but format was great.

I hate cricket

Played against a bunch of cheats, bloke snicked off in the first over and wasn't given by his mate. Anything not hitting the stumps was a wide etc.

They then very sportingly decided to bowl bouncers in the dark when they'd already won the game.

When this happens I console myself with the thought that that team will probably not be playing in 5 years time, or if they will, they'll be in a much lower division - at least that always seems to be how it works out.

Most players don't want arguments and antagonism every game. So the cheats will either a) be quietly asked to either buck up their ideas or piss off, or b) be left with no team-mates.

I must have seen this 100 times over the years. Teams that are arseholes do well for a few years, but eventually they come up against teams they can't cheat or intimidate, and then suddenly either disappear altogether or go into free-fall.

The ridiculous thing was the match was the league decider.
I honestly couldn't care less if they'd won the game legitimately, sometimes you just have to say the better team won on the day. The fact they had to resort to such tactics left a real sour taste after the game.

Clearly winning a plastic cup is more important to them than playing fairly and within the spirit of the game. Oh well, there's always next year (if we enter the competition, chasing round for players and turning up with 10 becomes tiresome very quickly...)
