Cricket is a game known for its sportsmanship. But on rare occasions, some incidents on the field question the spirit of the game. This is one such video of two different deliveries which are legal but unfair to the batsman.

The first one is a game between the West Indies and England. England was set a target of 225. The match was poised well at 168/3. Then came this delivery to Nasser Hussain the England batsmen was on strike.

Carl Hooper, a WI bowler, bowled what is called a Grubber in cricketing terms. His ball pitched just short of a good length and Hussain who read the length went on the back foot. But the ball had a surprise for Hussain as it didn’t bounce at all and hit him dead straight in front of the stumps. He was gone lbw for 5 and the West Indians celebrated the wicket as there was nothing wrong with the delivery according to the laws of cricket.

 

In another game between the Australians and the West Indies, at 158/3, Perry a part time bowler was given the ball. He got one to roll onto the stump from a length. Mark Waugh who was on strike went for a booming cut shot but saw the ball hit his stumps all along the ground.

Waugh was gone for a well played 67. This incident will be remembered by the bowler for the rest of his life as this was his first Test wicket.
