    just came across this ..... and thought of sharing ......

    (Incident described in "From the Pavilion End" by Harold "Dickie" Bird)
    "Bomber" Wells, a spin bowler and great character, played for
    Glocuestershire and Nottinghamshire. He used to bat at No.11 since one
    couldn't bat any lower. Of him, they used to paraphrase Compton's famous
    words describing an equally inept runner; "When he shouts 'YES' for a run,
    it is merely the basis for further negotiations!" Incidentally, Compton was
    no better. John Warr said, of Compton "He was the only person who would call
    you for a run and wish you luck at the same time." Anyway, when Wells played
    for Gloucs, he had an equally horrendous runner as the No.10. During a
    county match, horror of horrors.......both got injured.
    *Both* opted for runners when it was their turn to bat.
    Bomber played a ball on the off, called for a run, forgot he had a runner
    and ran himself. Ditto at the other end. In the melee, someone decided that
    a second run was on. Now we had *all four* running. Due to the confusion and
    constant shouts of "YES" "NO", eventually, *all* of them ran to the same
    Note - at this point in time, the entire ground is rolling on the floor
    laughing their behinds out. One of the fielders - brave lad - stops laughing
    for a minute, picks the ball and throws down the wicket at the other end.
    Umpire Alec Skelding looks very seriously at the four and calmly informs
    them "One of you buggers is out. I don't know which. *You* decide and inform
    the bloody scorers!".

    Then there's this wicketkeeper who quitely asked the new batsman:"So how's
    your wife, and my kids?" Guess who.........Rod Ian Botham!!

    >> Botham replied, my wife is fine and your kids are retarded.

    Another interesting display of wit.

    Eddo Brandes of Zimbabwe was facing a Glenn McGrath at his peak....naturally nudging at the ball and missing it and in the process frustrating McGrath and the Aussies.

    Finally, McGrath could take it no more and resorted to sledging. He yelled "Oi, Brandes! Why are you so fat" ? (He was rather stocky)

    The immediate reply by Brandes was "Because your wife gives me a biscuit every time I sleep with her".

    Play was interrupted for at least a couple of minutes because the slip fielders could not help rolling on the field in laughter.

    yet another one ...........

    Greg Thomas was bowling to Viv Richards in a county game.
    Viv missed a superb outswinger, and Thomas said "It's red, round and weighs
    about 5 1/2 ounces."
    Next ball Viv hits Greg Thomas out of the ground for a 6 and replies,"Greg,
    you know what it looks like. Go ahead and find it!"

    not a true incident, but i wish it were....

    Most cricketers, who are not comfortable in conversing in English, go
    prepared for some standard questions that are asked from them when
    commentators chat with them during the awards ceremony.
    Inzamam was once asked a different question after Pakistan won the match,
    for which he was not prepared. He always had a standard response to the
    first question. But this time.....

    Tony Greig: So Inzi, that's fantastic, your wife is pregnant for the
    second time!

    Inzamam: All credit goes to the boys. Everyone work hard for it,especially
    It was tight situation when he went in. Without his strokes it not have been
    possible. He was pulling the good balls. Also BobWoolmer keeping close
    watch on progress and giving instructions. It's all team effort which
    pulled us out of big hole. Insha Allah, we all will work together as team,
    put in big effort and deliver good result all the time.
