I think for me it has to be when I was on four wickets, just got my fourth in fact, and I had one ball left in my 12 over spell. Left hander came in, I came around the wicket, bowled him, first ball, hit the top of off stump for my second ever 5-for, my 1st of the season, was well chuffed! ;D

I was on a hattrick ball and also had 4 wickets, bowled an awful leg stump full toss and he just flicked it straight to square leg.   I was well happy

Mine was probably last year 1st game of the season, opening the bowling.  1st ball I run up against one of my county mates, bowled a ball that swung away and seamed back in and took off stuff out, was well chuffed!!  He just smiled at me and probably knew he'd been done! ;D

Only wicket for County (very occasional leggie); pitched outside leg, hit top of off. Absolutely no exaggeration, I'm a big turner of the ball because I don't put any topspin on!

best wickets are when a guy shapes up to play a forward defensive shot and you spin the ball right through his defense. got a few like that!

well from a keepers perspective the best wickets are the nice gentle knics which come through at about waist hight.

most likely when the opening batsmen on 56 charged me and tried to slog me. I pitched the ball a little shorter and is spun away from the batsman, easy stumping  ;D

Had One Similar To Those Mentioned Before.... OS Round The Wicket To A Left Hander.... Pitched Outside Leg, gripped Turned n Hit Off. Exact Same Ball To A RH On The Drive.... So Round The Wicket Pitched Outside Off n Hit Leg.
My Other 2 Favorites Are When I Bowled A Left Hander Round His Legs From Around The Wicket & When I Flighted One Up Outside The Offstump.... You Could See The Batsmens Eyes Light Up..... But It Was A Doosra :) No Where Near It .... Keeper Loved Taking That Stumping :L As The Batsmen Had Said He Was Gunna Hit Me For 6 Apparently :P

Guy left the ball a foot outside leg stump and it ripped back and took his middle bail! That and I bowled a ball on leg which hit the top of off stump beating the outside edge.

i was on a hatrick ball yesterday.. first two i got out with straight skidding deliveries..one hit middle stump, second one hit off stump.. my next hatrick ball was wide of offstump but defended by the batsmen.

these 2 were my best wickets since I bowled them both the same way, and made me feel confident and consistent.
Both pitched on legish and were seaming away to right handed batsmen.. I was bowling left arm over the wicket

ps. at the interval, i had to check the mirror, since i thought i was Ryan Sidebottom.. but it was just me..Sameer  ::)
