Everyone suddenly becomes aware that the stumps are liable to explode

No-one was quite sure what it was, but everyone agreed that it was very clear that the stumps suddenly seemed like they were going to explode.

Was it a ticking sound that tipped them off?

Billy Bowden backed away. Monty Panesar attempted to protect himself with his oversized hands and AB de Villiers just threw himself to the ground.

4 Appeals

  1. Bowden is strangely reminiscent of David Byrne in the video for ‘Once in in a Lifetime.’
    Or is he just leaning forward to protect the crowd from the blast with his hideous face?

  2. this is more like it.

    this is old school king cricket.

    more lies about pictures please.

    and while we’re at it, more animals being conspicuously indifferent to cricket, more cricket bats in unusual places and more rob key.

    thanks.

  3. Bowden’s umpire’s coat appears to be inflating. Have the ICC arranged emergency jackets for use in exploding stumps dramas?

  4. If you look at the entanglement of legs, I think that Monty and the batsman had in fact been rehersing for the forthcoming “Strictly Run Dancing” television show.
