Best bowling performances

Postby Big Vern » Wed Oct 19, 2016 19:45

I shall be buying this book on the intraweb:

I can still remember sitting with my dad watching Willis at Headingly. There may be some false memories involved, but I'm pretty sure he got all ten wickets and was smoking a big doobie as he bowled.

I definitely did see Curtly Ambrose bowl against Oxford University at the Parks in the early 90s. He is a massive guy.

I saw Shane Warne at the SCG on his test debut. It may have been the worst bowling performance of his career.

Bill Murray really did bowl three final strikes in a row when he filmed the scenes the end of Kingpin where his character required three strikes.

I hope that wasn't the only time you watched him bowl. Would be a bit unlucky. :smile:

Having said that, the only time I went to see the Fall the fuckers didn't turn up. Well, they eventually did, but after I'd got bored and had gone home.

Yeah I did. But none of them were spectacular.

I mostly remember that game because I got to see a teenage Sachin Tendulkar smash 150 not out. An innings of beauty.

The young Bangladeshi lad just did rather well.

I think that must have been one of England's all-time best collapses. It's something we excel at.
