Caught On Camera

There are few more enjoyable sights in cricket than part-time bowlers having their day in the sun. There’s just something about it: the shock, the surprise, the unconstrained delight when a seemingly innocuous part-timer sends a batsman on their way. Here are three of our favourites in this week’s Caught On Camera.

More Than Yous-ful

This one is absolutely golden, primarily for Mohammad Yousuf’s celebration. He is as surprised as anyone to have taken a wicket; even umpire Simon Taufel has a little smile. This dismissal means that Yousuf boasts the proud record of taking a wicket with 50 per cent of his ODI deliveries – a criminal waste of bowling resources if you ask us.

Taming The Little Master

Our second offering this week must be up there with the very best part-time snares in terms of the sheer quality of the delivery and the reputation of the batsman. Without wanting to knock Yousuf, his victim Christopher Mpofu will never quite compare to the diminutive genius.

Worth A Punt

Now we love a good video at AOC, but this one does seem a little too much. Admittedly old Ricky Ponting is a bit useful with the ball in hand, but a seven-minute video dedicated to his Test victims seems a touch over the top. Still, his facial hair at the beginning is worth a watch alone.
