This is a question sent in by Karthik! (and he gets a free point for that!:-)well you-too- can do so by mailing me: shenoyvarun86@gmail.com

Edward Stevens had thrice bowled through John smalls wicket in a celebrated single wicket match between Five of Hambeldon and Five of Kent in 1775. Hambeldon needed 14 to win and the last man, Small, providentially reprived, got the required 14 runs.

What did the above incident lead to ?

Quoting Akshay Anantraman John Small got bowled again and again but wasn’t out because there were only two stumps in those days. This particular incident led to the addition of the 3rd stump.

A sitter,Explain!


Well,there are only a few instances in which people remember Bradman getting out,this one being the bodyline series where he anticipated a “leg line” but the ball unfortunately did not bounce and he was out bowled.There were a few who guessed this as Bradman’s last innings,but please note that Bradman was bowled to a spinner,whereby the keeper was standing up,in his last innings.Also this was the first time(probably last) that Bradman got out-duck-in the first ball
