10 Weirdos in Cricket

Here's a video I came across on YouTube regarding the '10 Most Weird Dismissals in Cricket' and it accounted for a pretty interesting viewing. Though there have been quite a few which have been hilarious and at the same time outrageous, not all can be covered in this one.

Remember the game in New Zealand, where Andre Adam's magic delivery did in Kumble! I tried finding a video for the same, but couldn't. Any others that you can recall?

well well, now that ian healy catch was good, bt i'd like to see atleast the following ones too:

1. Johnty Rhodes catch in a world cup match i suppose where firstly he just flipped the ball in the air, and caught it in the 2nd go (don't remember the batsman and the match, i suppose against aussies)

2. Shoaib Akhtar, dravid and sachin, back to back, indo pak test match, and 2 consecutive yorkers..

probably these are the good ones, and amng the hillarious/good ones category, i suppose, brian lara got runout while he was trying to play a shot, missed it, and his back foot went out of the crease, got run out.. anil kumble's i do remember that as well..

i mean i suppose if thot of we can just go on and on, there mite be lotsa such kinds.. bt yes, inzi toh gr8 hai.. hit wicket and tht one when he hit the throw with his bat.. :D :D bol usko weight kam karega ;)

I'm afraid but I kind of disagree in this - the category here is weird and not awesome. The healy catch qualified not cause of his 'brilliance' but Cullinan's brainless duck, where he left his bat hanging and eventually nicked it.
1. It was Rhodes brilliance that made that catch possible.
2. Akhtar's yorkers were probably he produced in succession to account for the two of the world's most sound technicians.

well, ya kinda figured out it later... it's not abt brilliance in all these wickets.. ur title itself speaks out "weird" .. my mistake.. accepted.. :)

bt then i'll surely figure out that brian lara, i think it was against sri lanka, where his stupidity got him out... after playing the shot, in the follow thru, his back foot went out of the crease, and got stumped/runout by sangakarra.. don't really know whether it was srilanka.. bt then i remember the batsman being brian lara.

you've got it right on Brian! :D
