Well no point in telling you how much I love cricket, you all know it ! But this is different… I actually did something a cricketer should never do… but before I tell you what I did and what transpired, I must tell you this infamous cricket story…
Whenever you ask a cricketer about the Underarm, Immediately the image of Greg Chappell comes to your mind… The silly and totally disgraceful skipper of Australia instructed his brother Trevor Chappell to bowl the last delivery to be bowled under arm when New Zealand to win the third final needed 7 to win of the last ball !!!! Imagine 7 to win of the last ball !!!
This is what happened….
Even the wicketkeeper Rodney Marsh immediately said NO and shook his head… but alas !!!
Whilst my favourite commentator Bill Lawry wasnt as scathing in his remarks about this incident while he was on air… you must just see how angry Richie Benaud is !!!! I have never seen Richie lose his temper… and it goes without saying he is another one of my most admired cricketer, cricket captain and commentator. Just check Richie out in this video :
Even the guy whose advice I blindly follow when it comes to cricket judgement and the best Cricket Captain ever Ian Chappell had this to say about the underarm incident which involved his brother :
“Fair dinkum, Greg, how much pride do you sacrifice to win $35,000?”
persuaded by lil devils….
decided to go Underarm….
and the result….
with a heavy heart
This is what you get when you dont listen to Icons….
I Here by swear !!!!
Never to UNDERARM again !
