Kieron Pollard's catch on the boundary against Mumbai in the IPL this year was great.

The time that I got caught by the newsie-wewsies by a big bottomed bird with my leg stump! It was a square peg according to the silly mid off ball tamperer!

how many of those home run hitters switched the bat into their other hand and reversed their stance while the ball was in flight?

jabba hands, Friday, 31 May 2013 12:57 (five years ago) Permalink

not many but also their bats tend to not be like 6 inches wide, that's actually against the rules

maybe if yr bats were bigger you could do cool stuff like that, ever think of that??

Baseball bats are much thicker than cricket bats, though of course you have to get a good contact to hit a home run in baseball. I suspect also that cricket balls are heavier than baseballs.

The ones he hits off the bowler in yellow (Brett Lee) are just insane. Although we're about to see Brett Lee again in a second...
