Who has THE WORST style of appealing?
« on: October 26, 2018, 05:49:28 PM »

I think it has to be Sarfaraz Ahmed.

I am not sure if he knows the actual words "How was that?" or "How is that?" or "Howzat?".

while jumping up and down, all he hysterically yells and screams is  "UUAAAAHHHHHHHH UUAAHHHHHHHH UAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"

Stuart broad, just runs to gully wagging his finger then turns round, shouts what and puts his hand to his mouth in shock that he even had to ask.

Dont know about worst, but my favourite is a team from Leicester. Leicester Caribbean, the wicket keeper puts both arms up and bellows umpiiiiiirrre! In the strongest West Indian accent you can imagine.

Most of the Asian teams like India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have that really annoying aargh, aaaarrrgghhh, aaaarrrgghhhhhhhhhhhh sound. Mushfiqur and Kamran Akmal are two that spring to mind straight away

You're definitely right about Stuart Broad as well, I find it really disrespectful of him the way he celebrates before any decision had been given. Just let the umpires umpire and you concentrate on your bowling Stuart.

Interesting point that came up on one of the TMS 'ask the umpire' segments was that teams need to appeal for a batsman to be given out bowled.

I totally get what you mean about bowlers celebrating before a batsman is given out caught behind or lbw, but does this also mean that they shouldn't celebrate when a batsman is bowled until the umpire raises his finger?

I would most certainly like to add the Sri Lankan keeper Dickwella to this list - the guy is more excitable than a teenage boy who's found his parents stash of 'adult' magazines.

The answer is my team mate Will. As soon as the ball hits the pads, doesn't matter that it pitched 4 yards outside leg, he assumes a strange semi squat stance, left arm circling above his head like he's about to lasso the umpire, whilst his hips thrust back and forth in an alarmingly sexual warning of what might happen if he does actually does successfully lasso the umpire.
