Hi fellas...

I was wondering if you could help me answer these questions:

1. Can a team change his wicket keeper without any particular reason like one is injured or sth. ?

2. Can a wicket keeper bowl? If so, who was he in which match?

3. What was the highest number of wickets in an over? (The one I can remember is 4 straight ones by WI vs. SA... of course I could be wrong and there were no double hattricks right?)

4. I asked this in yahoo! answers but asking again... are there any ambidextrous player? Someone who bowls/bats with both hands? (Note I do NOT mean that bowl wit right and bat wit left rather... bowl OR bat with right and left hands BOTH)

Thanks... :-)

i remember andrew hall kept till 49 overs against australia and bowled last over

From that match report

Curiously right at the death Andrew Hall, who kept very well in the absence of the finger knife slicing Mark Boucher, was called up to bowl the second last over, with 22 needed. He started with a nervous wide but held up well under the pressure to concede only eight off the over and this left the Aussies needing 14 off the last.

I think one of the Jap players in ICC did that.
Also Monju Bhai (elder brother of Nasu Bhai, x Ntl Wkp and Compi Analyst) Xcaptain of Abahani could bowl with two hands and also was a keeper. I saw him in a single match he did all three in dhaka league game

Thanks for the input guys. Here's another one to mull on...

How about a scenario where the batsman bludgeoned a ball and it was about to hit the umpire but out of reflex the umpire took the catch [lol] and heck even for a moment jumped up in the air all ecstatic reminiscing the good ol days of his career? Has this ever happened or any similar situation? Heck, I'd die to see sth. like this...

4. I asked this in yahoo! answers but asking again... are there any ambidextrous player? Someone who bowls/bats with both hands? (Note I do NOT mean that bowl wit right and bat wit left rather... bowl OR bat with right and left hands BOTH)

Thanks... :-)

Here's a question, which i am just curious to know....

As we all know Sreesanth and Harbhajan were reprimanded for their behaviour in the IPL ( I'm a bit late i know!). Now an incident in school made me rethink this logic, my cousin brother was annoying me in school about some incident in the weekend (he's very cheeky), and so i got him in a headlock and started to "have words with him"....now the teacher came and saw this, he was telling me off, and i just told him, he's my brother and he was saying something cheeky. The teacher was kinda surprised, "O right, well then, ******* (name) respect your elder brother" in a grin!

So imagine, had it been Yusuf Pathan and Irfan Pathan, or David and Michael Hussey. Im just curious, what would the IPL body done? Were they (Slapper and "Slappered") reprimanded for the embarrasment or because harm to anothe rperson is wrong. Would the sentence have been reduced if a little sibling rivalry spilled over instead of Bhajji and Sree?

i don't think pathans or hussys will hit each other. if they had, they would get the same sort of punishment if not more

Sachin Tendulkar has done it in domestic cricket. He is ambidextrous in the sense that he writes with his left hand and plays with his right hand. However, in the field he regularly practices left hand throws...something I believe every cricketer should do..

There is an interesting story behind how he turned ambidextrous in batting. As everyone knows, he was a genius right from his childhood. His coach Ramakant Achrekar would throw Sachin as the ultimate challenge to bowlers. He would place a coin on his off stump and would challenge the bowler.....any bowler who gets him out would get the coin...and if no one could, then Sachin would get the coin. He would bat from morning till evening and would remain unbeaten many times. He has a prized possesion of 41 such coins.

As this routine went on, it became boring for Sachin. So he started batting left hand on occasions to make the challenge more interesting. Thats how he developed his left hand batting skills. He has batted left handed in a couple of domestic matches when the matches were as good as won.

3. What was the highest number of wickets in an over? (The one I can remember is 4 straight ones by WI vs. SA... of course I could be wrong and there were no double hattricks right?)In first class cricket, there are two instances of a bowler taking five wickets in six balls (Copson & Pocock) and another of the bowler hitting the stumps with five consecutive balls (the second was a no ball - Charlie Parker). But as far as I know, all these were spread across two overs.

One definite instance of five wickets in an over - including a run out - involved Pat Pocock for Surrey v Sussex at Eastbourne, 1972 (http://uk.cricinfo.com/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/1970S/1972/ENG_LOCAL/CC/SUSSEX_SURREY_CC_12-15AUG1972.html ). With three overs to go, Sussex needed 18 to win, 9 wickets in hand.

Then the game went like this :

Over No.41 Pocock : W.W 2.W (Sussex 189/4, 16 needed from 2 overs to win)

Over No.42 Jackman 4 1 . . 6 . Sussex 200/4 (5 needed from final over to win)

Over No.43 Pocock : W W W 1 W 1&W Sussex 202/9, match drawn

The last wicket was run out, batsmen went for the second run. Pocock took four wickets in 4 balls, 5 in 6 balls, 6 in 9 balls and 7 wickets in 11 balls.

School and professional arenas are different.

If Pathans were doing it in the field, I'm sure both of them would have been penalized, that would be severe. Because they were brothers they had one offence more. :)
